Swamp Thing (Part 2)

While we worked on de-scaling the side grills on the swamp cooler, we also had to deal with the bigger problem, which was a tremendous accumulation of crud in the cooler's water pan.

Our trip over to Fallon a couple of days ago included shopping for both tools and treatments we weren't able to find in Fernley. That was a success, so Lisa got to work.

We're significantly down the restoration path now. Repainting can start as early as tomorrow as the pan is currently sitting in the sun drying out from the rust-prevention treatment. There will still be rounds of waiting for coats of paint to dry after that, but when that's done, we should be able to reassemble the cooler and get it working again.
