That is kind of funny so do I, the water tends to hold about 15-20 degrees cooler then ambient temperature + the one I use sits in the shade. I use it to drop the temp down to the 80-70 degree range then run the last part with ice/water to drop to pitching temps takes about 15-20 minutes I'd have to guess, I do the last bit of clean up/put stuff away then add ice and finish. Rinse pot with the water remove the fountain pump dump water on fruit trees.
