Using a mister

Posted by clownhouse (My Page) on

Hi all. I want to add a mister in the spring. However, we only have one hose and a lot of stuff to water. So, my question is do you have to have this thing running all the time, or for just a certain amount of time each day? Are there alternative to the mister that would work as well? Any other advice you could give would be great! Thank you!

RE: Using a mister

I am not sure if people leave their misters on all day or not, but they make "Y splitter hose adapters" that might help you. Even if you do not leave it on all the time, it will save time in changing hoses a few times each day. Just turn the levers on the adapter to turn either one, or both, on.

Below is a link to a y splitter, any hardware store will sell one similar to the one in the photo.

Here is a link that might be useful: Y splitter.
