Happy summer ya’ll. We have been enjoying weather in the high 80s this week in Ohio. While we have the insanely awesome blessing of a pool in our backyard to cool off at any minute I wanted to highlight a few products to keep cool in the summer that I think you will really love. These products are made by a company called Arctic Cove.
By far my favorite product of theirs is the 18V Bucket Top Misting Fan which retails for $99.97, although it looks like it is on sale for $79.97 right now. You basically hook the top up to any 5 gallon bucket filled with water (or use your hose for continual water flow). You can use just the fan or the fan and mister too. I was building in my workshop yesterday when it was 89 and sunny out and I was dying. So I grabbed the fan and had it going and would just turn on the mister when I needed a quick cool down. It was awesome – clearly you can tell by my cheesy face when I turned the mister function on!)
What in the world? I am like a kid!
My kids have been selling lemonade and cookies for extra money and it was super hot out (boom they made $34 in sales!) so I brought it out there. Of course they feel like it is a sprinkler and stick their heads as close to it as possible. I kept having to remind them to back up and share the mist! HA! But it made the heat so much more bearable.

While it might be annoying to travel with a 5 gallon bucket of water to say, a soccer game, I bet all the soccer moms and dads would love you when you turned it on. The cool part is it uses an 18V battery so no need for electricity. If you have any Ryobi 18V batteries it is compatible with those too.
The most versatile product from Arctic Cove, and the one I think you will want most for your backyard is the Polar Party which retails for $199 (giveaway below!). I know that seems pricey but this is a music, light and misting tower. So it is a pretty good value when you realize all it can accomplish in your backyard.
We haven’t used the mister regularly yet since we have it on our back deck by our pool but we use the speaker to play music every day. What is a pool party with no tunes? And the cool part is I just enable it to a play song on my Iphone.
When my husband and I go on the the porch at night we use the light, and again this uses the same 18V battery as any Ryobi one and gives off plenty of light.
There is some assembly required and you need to buy some play sand to anchor it so it doesn’t tip or blow over with a strong wind.
In order to use the misting feature you just add a 5 gallon bucket filled with water underneath and turn the mister on. Pretty cool huh?
I give two thumbs up on all these products and am excited to offer one lucky winner a Polar Party Music, Misting and Light Tower.
