HOW TO COOL OFF WITH OUTDOOR MISTING SYSTEMS
From Luxury Pools
Obviously, when you have a swimming pool, the best way to beat the summer heat is to take a cannonball-type plunge into the soothing waters of the pool. However, when there are areas of expansive decking, especially darker colored areas, the heat that is generated can not only make you and your guests uncomfortable, touching certain heated areas can literally cause injury. This phenomenon is not limited to pool areas, but any outdoor living space. The automatic misting system, which uses micro droplets of water to create a cooling phenomenon, is a great way to solve these issues. These systems can be used around Bluestone or heat absorbing decks, around pergolas, inside umbrellas or eaves, around fence lines, etc. to cool the inhabitants significantly. This article from Luxury Pools gives some great information about misting systems, their design, and the installation options.
