Misting System Frustrations!
Please excuse me for venting my frustrations on this post. I am so mad with my misting system, If you could even call it that anymore.
I was letting it run for a few minutes to mist a new vivarium (I hadn't set up a timer yet) and got side-tracked...15 minutes later the misting sytem reserviour was drained and the pump was running dry. Not only that, but the pump had practically melted! As soon as I walked into the room, I could actually feel heat radiating from the glob of ooze that used to be a pump. Never have a seen a product with such a fantastic self-destruct mode!!
So, now I need a new pump for my misting system. I really want to buy a pro-mist pump ($130). Supposedly, the pro-mist pumps can run dry for a few days (or at least a couple of minutes). But, I'm worried that my current misting nozzels and tubes won't be compatible with it.
Whatever I do, I'm definatly not going to buy another pump that's prone to incedible overheating.
Any ideas? Has anyone had experience with Pro-Mist or other misting pumps? Thanks!
