mist. The Supervisor said it reduces the temp in the work Bays by
10-15 F. on average...and this is in Florida ! In the Southwest, im

have them in sizes of 1/4" and 3/8" o.d. You simply select where on
the tubing you want the small nozzles to go then attach the tubing to
your garden water spiggot (3/4" connector provided with the
In addition to comfort cooling, I could see this working real well on
A/C condensor coils in conjunction with an inline water filter to
filter out sediment so it doesnt come out on the coils. For 10' of

readings to see how effective it is.
