How it Works
Every Mist360 unit hangs and wires just like a ceiling fan. Each kit includes a high-pressure pump and a hose that attaches to your water source. Your source water is pressurized by the included pump. Once pressurized, water travels from the pump to the Mist360 unit via high-pressure tubing and is dispersed through the mist nozzles attached to the fan. When the mist evaporates, the surrounding air is cooled and the fan inside the unit spreads this rapidly cooled air across a variety of distances depending on the model being used.
Every Mist360 kit comes included with a hose that attaches to your water source. This hose brings water to the high-pressure pump. Once the water is pressurized, it travels to the mist fan via high-pressure tubing.
Nylon flex tubing comes standard with all Mist360 kits. It is flexible and easier to bend around corners. Alternatively, you can upgrade to stainless steel tubing, which is more durable, cleaner looking and lasts longer. Both types of tubing are available in the following colors: Black, White, Brown and Beige.
That depends on the type of fan and type of nozzle attached. This can be calculated by multiplying the water usage of each nozzle, measured in Gallons Per Minute (GPM), and multiplying that number by the number of nozzles on each fan.For example, a Mist360 Cyclone (8 nozzles) equipped with 8 blue-ring nozzles (.016 GPM) would use .128 gallons of water for each minute of use.For reference, an American shower uses approximately 2.1 gallons of water per minute on average.
Yes. Each Mist360 unit utilizes a quiet, high-speed electric fan that generates air flow.
The main differences between our mist fans are the physical dimensions and the area each unit can effectively cool.
The Mist360 MiniCool cools an area between 75 and 100 square feet.
The Mist360 Cyclone cools an area between 100 and 200 square feet.
The Mist360 Breeze cools an area between 200 and 250 square feet.
Yes, many of our customers replace existing ceiling fans with our Mist360 mist fans. you can move air on days when the cooling power of mist isn't required.
The Mist360 MiniCool is available in black, brown and white.The Mist360 Cyclone is available in black and brown.The Mist 360 Breeze is available in black and brown.We can paint the fans any color offered by Sherwin-Williams for an extra charge.
When consulted, each Mist360 system will include an aluminum downrod that, based on the height of your ceiling, will be cut to the appropriate length for MistAmerica's recommendation. When purchased online, each system will include a 24-inch downrod that we recommend you cut to land within the following recommended height ranges:T
he recommended height range for the Mist360 MiniCool is between 7 and 8 feet above the floor.
The recommended height range for the Mist360 Cyclone is between 7.5 and 9 feet above the floor.
The recommended height range for the Mist360 Breeze is between 8 and 10 feet above the floor.
Line mist wraps around and cools the perimeter of your patio space. It can be an effective solution, but can be neutralized by even mildly windy conditions.
Mist fans hang and wire just like a ceiling fan and cool the interior of your patio space. They are not neutralized by windy conditions and effectively cool the same space without using as much water as line mist systems.
We have a solution for that. MistAmerica offers four types of nozzles that are all most effective for specific types of weather and climate. For more humid weather, MistAmerica recommends using a set of nozzles that emit less water.

By following MistAmerica's recommendations (fan type, height of fan, type of nozzle) you will drastically reduce the likelihood of your patio getting wet.
Yes, MistAmerica carries 4 sets of nozzles that vary in how much water they emit. The industry-standard measurement is Gallons Per Minute (GPM). This is identified by a colored ring near the tip of each nozzle.
Each silver nozzle emits .025 GPM.
Each blue nozzle emits .016 GPM.
Each red nozzle emits .011 GPM.
Each white nozzle emits .006 GPM.
Nozzles can be cleaned by soaking them for 3-5 minutes in CLR and then thoroughly rinsing them under warm water to remove any CLR residue.
Try to manually clean/scrub/de-clog the hole in the nozzle, it is fractions of a millimeter and too small to be effectively cleaned by any other method than the one above.

MistAmerica recommends cleaning your nozzles once per season of use. For maximum effectiveness, clean just prior to reattaching nozzles for the new season of use.
Maintaining Your System
Nozzles are periodically cleaned as needed. The filters for your kit should be changed once per season to maximize performance. We also recommend changing the oil in your pump at the beginning of each year.
To properly "Winter-ize" your system, MistAmerica recommends purging all water at the end of the warmer season and removing all nozzles from Mist360 fan. By doing this, you will prevent water from freezing and damaging your equipment.
The size of the pump will determine the total number of fans that it can operate. For example, a .25 GPM pump can run 16 blue nozzles (2 Mist360 Cyclone units) or 24 red nozzles (3 Cyclone units). One high-pressure line runs from the pump and splits off to provide mist to each fan.
The standard warranty is one year from the date of shipment or the date of an installation done by MistAmerica.
The standard warranty of a commercial-grade pump installed by MistAmerica is three years.
The standard warranty on a residential DIY pump and motor is one year from date of purchase. It is your responsibility to ship the assembly to MistAmerica. We will repair or replace the pump and/or motor and ship it back to you.
The first step is to determine the pump assembly location, preferably near a water and power source. The next step is to determine where you are going to hang your Mist360 fan(s). The typical location for this is to replace an existing ceiling fan. The final step is to figure out how to run the high-pressure water line from the pump to the fan(s), making sure you have enough feed line between the pump assembly and fan(s).
