Q: What is the Mini-Mist Pro?
The T100 Mini-Mist Pro is the entry level workhorse for anyone starting a professional spray tanning business. It is the complete spray system: Turbine (motorized compressor that pushes out the air), 10-foot hose, and spray gun. Made in the USA, this unit is designed for durability, long life, and consistent performance. That is why turbine*, hose**, and gun** all come with an amazing 12-month warranty!
* The Aviva 12-Month turbine warranty applies only to customers who purchase an Aviva “starter package”, which consists of one of our sets of equipment, training, and sunless solutions. If purchased separately of a starter package, the equipment comes with the standard 6-Month manufacturer’s defect warranty and customer must pay shipping costs both ways. The warranty does NOT include damage from dropping, use of incorrect voltage, modifications, neglect, water exposure, or equipment that has been disassembled. A $290 refundable deposit will be charged to ship the replacement unit while we are waiting for you to return the faulty one.

Q: I’m planning on mostly spray tanning groups of people, is the Mini-Mist Pro right for me?
The Mini-Mist Pro is specifically designed to withstand the rigors of continuous use. It is the machine that we rely on in our sunless 101 spray tan training programs when we are teaching the hands-on portion of the class and spraying for hours on end. The Mini-Mist Pro is great for bridal parties, can handle a huge team of fitness competitors, and will help make any “Girls night in” a time to remember!
Since you will be traveling for your business, you will want a lightweight machine. Look no farther than the Mini-Mist Pro. Weighing in at less than a gallon of milk, and around the size of a toaster, the Mini-Mist Pro can fit into any trunk space or can fit nicely between the seats, and don’t worry about dodging those speed bumps: The Mini-Mist Pro is travel durable!
Q: I’m hoping to transition into a salon or store location in the future, should I choose the Mini-Mist?
That depends entirely on the salon or store location. The Mini-Mist Pro machine is quieter than a hair dryer so if you are joining forces with a hair salon it won’t make much of an impact in terms of noise level. It might be a bit too loud if you are going to be sharing your space with a masseuse, so if you do need a quieter machine for your future transition then we recommend the Mighty-Mist.
Another variable to consider is the atmosphere you are hoping to create within your store location. If you are going to create an exciting, music-thumping, hustling and bustling business with a bit of a modern urban flair then the Mini-Mist Pro will fit right in and it’s decibel level won’t affect a thing. If you are pursuing a quieter, more relaxed space where your clients can come to de-stress then we recommend either the Mighty-Mist or designing your space with a cubby or “spray tan booth” aspect, where the sound is mitigated by walls, sound panels, and other barriers so as not to disrupt the atmosphere.
Q: What is the warranty on the spray gun & hose?
Spray guns & hoses: All spray guns & hoses have a separate warranty of 12 months** if purchased as part of an Aviva starter package. Please note that damage to the needle or breakage due to damage or neglect is not covered under warranty.
