Hydro SS 700™ Series FAQ
1. Does the 700 produce a mist or a fog?
These units produce a very fine misty fog. Ideal for raising humidity levels, evaporative cooling of air mass and also evaporative cooling objects. For example people who pass directly underneath the units could receive a very light misting for some direct evaporative cooling. However most of the mist/fog will evaporate before it has a chance to contact objects.
2. How quiet is the 700 units?
Although these units are not quite as quiet as the humm of a refrigerator, they are quiet and have a very pleasing sound to the human ear. The sound level would not be much different than any ordinary household cooling fan.
3. Do I need to fill this unit with water?
No, the 700 connects with a garden hose connector to any size water supply line. On the "Sump" models, an internal floatvalve will automatically maintain a proper water level. There is also small sump area allowed to collect and reuse all unused water, so no drainage is necessary.
4. How much water pressure do I need?
00 units do not require any high pressure pumps. An ordinary water supply is more than adequate and pressure can be as low as 5 psi. Units can also be gravity fed from reservoir supples located higher than the unit(s).
5. Will the Aquafog units be reliable using my water supply?
All Aquafog units are a self-flushing and nozzle-free system that does not require small orifices to produce a high quality combination mist/fog. In most cases no filtration is necessary. In-fact, Aquafog units can accept ordinary water supplies, such as city, well and even pond water without incurring any clogs. Even well water supplies with high concentrations of calcium rarely present clogging problems.
6. Can I install this unit myself?
You certainly can, the 700 arrives fully assembled, they are very easy and quick to install. To complete a system: a Aquafog 700 unit is already complete and ready for manual operation. The combination 700 unit and a Humidistat can be set for automatic on/off operation according to a desired preset humidity level.
7. Is there a warranty on the Aquafog units?
All of our fogging units and accessories are covered by a one-year limited warranty.
