Mist Nozzle Setup & Nozzle Size Usage - Nozzles made in USA!
The general idea with evaporative mist cooling is that water is compressed and turned into a fine fog mist. It absorbs hot air under your tent, evaporates away and leaves cool air behind.
The systems come with a 70 psi+ pressure pumps. Pumps can be safely turned up to about 90 psi, however water usage suffers considerably. If you plan to sit under your mist for any length of time then use the .008" nozzles. The .012" nozzle is Max Cooling for light winds and HOT!! HOT!! HOT!!!
Many people ask about using ICE in their cooling water. We say YES!! This will extend water use and adds a HUGE Boost to the ~COOLING~ effect!
NOZZLES ARE MADE IN USA... MOST ACCURATE!!
NOTE: Use a Poly Phosphate Filter to help keep these clear of minerals. Use 50/50 Vinegar & Water - Soak Nozzles for a couple hours to dissolve minerals. Rinse & Blow Dry.
