    I think the same would apply to any blower.

    I doubt condensation would be a problem in Singapore, though, unless you use it in certain offices...

    i think sg's humidity level is high, but not in the limit of spitting saliva...

    just a question: do you guys keep the blower in the dry cabinet as well? do you guys keep 1 blower just for cleaning the interior while another blower is for exterior?

    My Giotto Rocket Blower has another problem though; the rubber body is coated with a fine layer of rust coloured dust that defeats any amount of wiping away. Looks like fungus to me, so dare not use it anymore. Anyone else has the same problem?

    The Giotto Rocket blower is powerful enough.

    Do any of you keep your blower in the dry cabinet?

    Upside is that air will guarantee to be dry, and no fungus will grow on or in it.

    Downside is that vulcanised rubber may not last as long under dry conditions.

    Any comments?
