Dumb idea maybe.... but has anyone thought about hooking up a small to medium sized DE-humidifier to the evaporation tower apparatus? You would be able to set it up so it empties right back into the resevoir. I think it would help wouldn't it?

it's kinda like putting your swapfile on a ramdrive...
that would work, BUT do you really want to be switching buckets every day?Perhaps 3 buckets of water. One hooked to the evapo one cooling and one being filled.

Make the dehumifier dump the warm water in a bucket, then make another waterpump move the water slowly back from the bucket?

here's an idea. measure the exact rate of evaporation. then drill another hole midway in the tower. connect that to a hose linked to a waterpipe somewhere in your hhouse. with something for flow regulation so it gets rfilled at the same rate it evaporates. rather elaborate. but it would work. however moving it to another location would be a *****...
