if you have a very strong fan, you can put a wet rag over the back to make a swamp cooler

My husband also bought these Granite Stone tiles from Amazon that are working great. They are working better then the cheep ceramic tile and hold the cool much longer. You can follow this link to check Amazon for tiles. I love them so far and the rabbits seem to love them also.

If you want to watch my review of the tiles check out this video. I also talk more about keeping them rabbits cool.

You should be able to get basic stone flooring tiles from most local hardware stores (home depot, lowes, menards all have them here) for cents to a few dollars each depending on material. I don't buy the chiller tiles for my chinchillas because they are way overpriced compared to what you can source as building materials in marble and granite. Also landscaping or gardening centers often have broken pieces of larger cut stone but it may be too thick and heavy for most floor wire. I found a whole pallet of mostly intact 2x4' pieces behind the stacks of mulch at Earl May. The guy at the counter just decided to price them out at about $2 each. At over 1" thick though while they will not break and spread a lot of cold or heat I have bricks between them and the floor because I'm not even sure my cages of bolted together wire bar panels would hold them without support.
Failing might just mean you are trying to climb instead of swim
