About

The PB550 Ocean Breeze™ Small Evaporative Mist Animal Cooling Kit operates at the pressure normally found in homes, without the need for expensive pumps, creating micro-sized water droplets to maximize the cooling effect. By increasing the moisture content of the surrounding air, the kit can dramatically reduce the air temperature.

Start the kit from a faucet or garden hose

To create your own microclimate, follow these step-by-step instructions, then sit back and enjoy the cooling comfort of an Ocean Breeze.
1. Place the screen inside the 3/4" swivel faucet connector and attach it to the water source. If water quality is a concern, we highly recommend using a fine mesh 3/4" filter (model D57A), not included with this kit.
2. Insert the end of the 1/4" misting line pipe into the faucet connector for about 1/2" to 5/8" by pushing and wiggling the pipe inward and applying some force.
3. Lay out the misting-line pipe at a height of 8' to 12' above the area and use the “C” clamps included in the kit every 2' to 4', securing the misting-line pipe to the structure.
4. At the location where the first fogger is to be placed, cut the misting-line pipe and add a tee.
5. To the tee, add a small piece (2" to 3") of 1/4” misting line. Continue using the same method, leaving the end of the misting line open.
6. Turn the water on and flush the line. Then, turn the water off and insert the foggers into the pieces of 1/4” misting line.
7. Use the plug to close the end of the misting-line pipe.
8. Turn the water on again and test the system, making sure that each fogger is operating correctly.
9. To automate this kit, install a misting timer that can operate for a limited time through the day and includes a short cycle.
10. The line connector will allow you to expand the system.
