Patio Cooling Misting System


Looking of someone with input that has had some dealings with patio misters. I've seen them in amusement parks that work really well, haven't had any experience with them for home use.As seen on this web site http://www.rapidcool.net/applications_home.html
This site looks over the top to me.

I do not have a pump
It works off the house - 80 psi here
Its about 36' of misting - Misty Mate
I bought it at the end of last year for about $30
I need to replace the part where the mister attaches to the hose
Other then that it works great

House pressure is 80 psi here
Its mounted against a screen house
So if the wind blows it back against the screen house I can get drips

Doesn't that raise the humidity in the backyard and make it more uncomfortable?

So far in use it cools the area down
The mist is at ground temp - cool water from the hose

We also use a misting fan
Between the 2 they can really cool the area off
They are both by our pool area
