    We are getting ready to install our new water blasters that we got from TW. We've never had any before and we where just thinking. What do you guys do to prevent the floor from getting slick? We have cement floors and after running these blasters for 5-6 hours a night. I'm sure water will start to collect on the floor and we are worried about possible slip and falls. What would you suggest? Thanks!!

    You need a place for water to go/drain or you could have bigger issues. Might raise the floor up and inch so as to have a "pool" where water can collect and then pump it outside or back into the tanks. Otherwise the water could find it's way into another area where you don't have anti slip mats and then u do get sued.

    We didn't have a problem with the water reaching the floor; it was shot directly on our customers! Mostly a fine mist anyway that was gone by the time they exited the haunt.

    we have 4 water blasters and have never had a problem with pooled water. Don't need to drown the customers, enough to mist them and let the mist and air do the work. If water is pooling, the blaster is putting out too much water.

    Do haunt customer like having water sprayed on them?
    A short while ago some of my customers told me they had water sprayed in their faces and this was one of the reasons they did not enjoy that haunt and will never go back to it. ??

    We use the rubber mats every year as well. We now don't drench our customers but the first year I used the sprayer it didn't take much for the floor to pool with water despite the mats, and it even began running under the panels into different scenes. NOT GOOD. So yeah, unless you're willing to build heightened floors and drains then it probably is best to lower the output.
