Misty fans

Has anyone seen or used a misty fan?

These are about the size of a normal fan but have a water reservoir at the bottom so it can throw out mist if requred. They seem ideal in this hot weather. Not sure if it's a good idea to use tap water, though.

The ones I have seen are remote controlled.

Re: Misty fans

Hi Tommie . We've used the hand held ones with a seperate trigger like a water pistol, but a fine spray, in spain . The water evaporates as soon as it hits you, so you don't seem to get wet (unless you really overdo the water). In Turkey, I'd use bottled water because of it staining clothes . Not seen house fan size like this though . Ted

Re: Misty fans

The UFO brand has the mist option. Certainly enjoyed being in restaurants or bars with the mist spray. Though I do wonder if you have one in the house if the mist would cause any damage to furniture etc if it doesn't evaporate quickly and creates damp.

Re: Misty fans

I was planning to use it outside, on the balcony, to prevent any damp problems.

The ALF ones are about 175 and the UFO ones are about 190.
On At Blvd, in Didim, the UFO ones are 235 which is a rip-off.

The ALF ones look nicer.
Not sure if there is any control, directional-wise or pressure, over the spray.

The website ALF does not give much information, not as though I could understand it. Must learn Turkish! But I could follow the pictures, which is a help.

No mist - 3 speed
1 1/2 litre - Motor protection against overheating
Mist - 7.5 hour timer
Remote control - 2 year guarantee

The first 2 units on the Maplin site are capable of being used in-doors, although as already mentioned because of the damp problem I would not recommend using one on a prolong basis.

I already have one similar to the first one and have stopped using it in the UK because of possible damp problems.

Although in a different thread I said I would not recomend them, then it may be difference because the heat in Turkey should very quickly dry up any moisture.

Re: Misty fans

They use them a lot in Las vegas (and other places) they have at shop entrances etc and some in street which the cops on horses use for the horses.

I thought of making a simple one as I dont think I would use it that much.
1 x fan
1 x pump-up pressure spray bottle.

if placed in front of the fan it should work, I wouldnt be worried about elec as the spray will be blown away from the fan, but then I am not an electrician.

Re: Misty fans

Lots of bars and restaurants in Alanya have them and I think they are excellent. Certainly very cooling.
