    Just curious Jeremiah how much did your swamp cooler cost? I am making a DIY one for my gh. Should work good. I have plans for it.

    DIY, that's great! I love building stuff it looks fantastic (of course)! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Carnivorous Newbie the sun beating through the glass or poly plastic sheeting will warm a greenhouse during the day even in winter. It's mainly nighttime when you need a heater to keep the space warm. In a smaller room like 8 x 12 or so you would probably be able to use an electric space heater or two from Walmart or something. Big freestanding structures (like I wanna build - at least 30 x 100 sq ft) will need a huge heating system of 200,000-300,000 BTUs.

    Nep G there are some plans for a swamp cooler in Orthos "All About Greenhouses". They aren't very detailed but it looks pretty easy to setup based on the diagram. Did you find the plans for yours online? I'd like to look them over if you have a URL to post.

    This is true Swords. However, I'm not quite dedicated enough to CP's YET to start spending that kind of money! They'll have to do in the house for now. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    To live we must learn to forgive.

    Sorry josh but I got my plans/idea from Catalani. If I had a scanner I could post the photo of his swamp cooler. It is a VERY easy unit to make. Material you will need are:

    2 vinil gutters
    1 piece of PVC pipe cu to the length of your cooler
    1 drain/return pipe
    1 inlet pipe
    1 submersible pump
    1 large container
    The pads which can be purchased form any large greenhouse company very cheap.

    Very easy to set up and make. I am looking forward to it next year.

    Thanks nep G, that's exactly the same recipe as the diagram in the Greenhouse book. I was just wondering if there was anything other than what the book said but apparently not... Great!
    I certainly won't pay over $1000 for an evaporative cooler kit when I already have a unused reef pump and two working hands and a home depot across the street! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    Wow, you have a Home Depot across the street. My kid would hate me and would also have no clothing if I had a Home Depot across the street. Instead of going to the park we'd go there. Luckily I have no car and it's all the way across town.
    Jeremiah, it looks decievingly bigger in the picture. What am I saying... 8x12 is huge compared to the 2 10 gallon tanks that I have. Again, I just have to say it's gorgeous.
