A mist spraying cooler is unique compared to a fountain in the following:

  • standing in the water is encouraged (where for fountains it is usually prohibited)
  • usually operates from potable water (no added disinfectant)
  • usually runs from the tap, not on a closed cycle
  • usually works without electricity
  • it has cool water

In Hungarian, it is called "párakapu" (from the words mist ("pára") and gate ("kapu").
