Evaporative cooling

There seems to be four major complaints when it comes to traditional evaporative cooling pad systems: I can't get my entire pad wet, the holes water distribution pipe clogs frequently, my pads are clogged with dust and algae, and water leaks from the distribution system cover making a mess of my house near the pads. Until recently many people thought these problems are just part of having a evaporative cooling pad system. But, some of the recent changes in water distribution system design have reduced these problems significantly.
