Swamp cooler can be drain on a daily basis plus cleaning it every week during summer will prolong its function. There is a 2 inches diameter knockout hole cover beneath the tank's left side portion for drainage/plug can use it whenever. I regularly drain its dirty water each every 72 hours. Can clean the pump, cooling pads, hoses, and the dripper using dish soap. My cooling pads has only little amount of hard water everytime, well good for me! I installed automatic temperature sensor also set at 78°F indoor temperature.
