De-Scaling the Swamp Cooler

Remember the swamp cooler and how hard we worked to scrape it off and get it ready for summer? Well, it's autumn now and time to clean it and put it away until we need it next summer.

I reckon I'm going to have to go buy more CLR solution, pull the grills off, and scrape it down again. Cleaning the pads is also a problem as there is no tub large enough in which I can soak the things. I have a little bit of hope that it will be a little easier to get the calcium build-up off this time. Also, there is very little accumulation inside the cooler, as opposed to all of the crud we scraped out of it back in May.
