One of the best ways to improve your Stephenville home this summer is to add patio misters to your outdoor entertainment area. Nobody wants to sit outside when the mercury creeps up to uncomfortable levels, and couple that with bugs and noisy neighbors, and you have a recipe for disaster. Misters are the best way to lower the temperature and make sure you and your guests stay comfortable all summer long!
There are a variety of ways to tackle a mister project. Less expensive misting kits cost around $60 and operate on city water pressure (about 50 psi). The only drawback with these is that they can be leaky, with mist falling from the nozzles. High-tech misting kits can cost upwards of $2,000 and use a pump to send water through nozzles at much higher pressure (1,000 psi). This creates a finer mist that tends to evaporate in thin air.
So, which misting kit is right for you? Here’s a look at four that will fit a variety of budgets!
EZ Mister Patio Mister Kits: With 10 to 16 brass and stainless steel nozzles, this kit will cover 20 to 32 linear feet. Tubing is not precut, allowing you to customize your misting system along the roof or the edge of awnings. This system attaches to an outdoor spigot or indoor sink faucet. (Cost: $58 to $112).
Portable Misting Tower (Sky Mall): For those looking for a portable solution, this is the way to go. The T-bar tower has a 360-degree adjustable misting bar that can handle 1,000 PSI, and the unit can grow to 7 feet tall. It also features a shut-off valve so you don’t have to run back and forth to your spigot. (Cost: $89.99)
Poly Fan Misting Ring: With this ingenious device, turn any fan into a misting one. The ring fits fans 8 to 18 inches in diameter. (Cost: $9.99 for 1 nozzle; $19 for 2 nozzles; $39 for 3 nozzles).
Fogco 50 Foot Professional Pulley Drive Misting System Kit: You’ll shell out the big bucks for this top-of-the-line misting system that includes a pulley-operated pump. But it does provide a cooler and quieter option. (Cost: $3,179)
