A water misting fan is a great way to cool a small outdoor space such as a patio or section of pool deck. Since these fans come with a 3-prong plug and attach to a standard garden hose, they are pretty easy for the do-it-yourselfer to install.

Step by Step


Step 1

Select a stable, flat, and solid vertical surface for your fan. The fan will include a mounting bracket with a large mounting hole. Mount the bracket placing the appropriate 3/8” hardware through the mounting hole. The fan should not be mounted in a window as rain and moisture can result in an electrical hazard.

Step 2

Attach brass male adapter with Teflon tape to the misting ring with a 9/16” wrench.

Step 3

Attach the other end of brass male adapter to the nylon tubing using a 9/16” wrench and a 5/8” wrench. Be sure to hand-tighten the nut, then complete the seal with one wrench turn of fitting. Do not over-tighten.

Step 4

Attach the hose adapter to the end of the nylon tubing and wrench tight. The manufacturer recommends using the full 25 ft of nylon tubing.

Step 5

Center the misting ring on the front of the fan and attach with zip-ties.

Step 6

Flush the system before putting in the mister nozzles. Insert the nozzles and begin misting.

Step 7

Adjust the air flow upward or downward by tilting the head of the fan. To change the fan speed, pull on the chain; each pull will change it to the next speed setting (the fan has three settings - low, medium and high).

Chris - Sorry, I don't understand the question mainly your reference to a box. A misting ring is mounted in front of the fan. Water is delivered to the ring through a 25' vinyl tube which is adapted to a garden hose.
