Reverse Osmosis

Evaporative cooling or misting systems have become one of the most popular tools to deal with hot weather in the southwestern U.S. Typically, the systems are used commercially to cool outdoor public spaces such as restaurant dining areas, patios and pavilions, and common areas at community parks and hotels. But they can also be found in “wandering” areas at nurseries, in tents and even ticket lines.
