    Shouldn't the link in this post be sanitized? Nobody needs to be reading that dribble and thinking this is some miracle cure all when all it does is destroy your coil.

    I guess not. I reported it as spam.

    When I went to school in Phoenix, AZ saw those evaporative pads installed to pre-cool the air before the condenser. I was told it was a maintenance nightmare. But the equipment wouldn't stay on line without them when ambients were over 100 or whatever.

    As to the OP's post, he'd be better off selling additional condenser space. Sort of like what Mikey has posted about doing. Putting a two ton compressor in a five ton condensing unit. Or whatever he has done.

    There was a manufacture years ago that came out with a condensing unit using plastic as the frame that had a water tray on the bottom where the condenser coil sat in, it had a float assembly as the water evaporated the float would drop and add more water refilling the tray ( similar to the flapper on this brand also the water line hookup from the OD faucet. It had a mini pump ( guessing it was 24 volt that energised when calling for cooling ) it would pick up the water in this bottom tray and send it to a another circular tray with many holes in it above the condenser coil, that water would gravity drop onto the condenser coil, similar to a cooling tower. Not to sure if the condenser fan used a low RPM motor. This Company came out with this condensing unit for residential use some 25+ years ago, suffice to say it never caught on. The big difference is this was built into a condensing unit and was not a mister whereas this manufacture is a add on to most any brand of condensers. Believe the company was based in a southern state and geared more for the southern regions.

    I suppose you had to take a proactive choice in regards to regular maintenance with this unit

    If You Follow any of the Video's - Need attention span longer then 22 sec.
    You find they are also Installing In Line water filter . .


    Seems that would less then the Acid Rain - Kits are $9.00 - $27.00 to get started ..

    Vs $4K-5K Installed for most Home Owners ..

    Not sure if you've been paying attention to Mikey's posts, but I think something that he wants to try goes like this:

    If you need 2 1/2 tons of cooling, buy a 5 ton unit, then remove the 410a and charge with 134a. By swapping the refrigerants, you only get half of the capacity, so you'd have a condenser that twice the size required.

    And the compressor wouldn't be working hard at all since the pressures would be so reduced.

    I would do that long before I'd be spraying water on any coils. I live near the coast, and just being close to water tears up the aluminum fins.

    Do you have the certs from the water filter manufacturers.

    Most water filters only remove large sediment and don't do much for removing the small dissolved solids which cause the scale buildup.

    Most manufacturers are not afraid of hiding the truth.

    The compressor would still be working just as hard. Its not the pressure, but the compression ratio that counts.

    Your argument is with Mikey. Take it up with him.
