RE: problems with picking a misting timer

Wish I could help, I used to use a melnore 3060 aqua timer, and a hose, with some minor adjustments it worked alright.It runs on batteries.

If you do a search on misting systems, I think they have some cheap, effective ways to do it listed here.

I switched to a mist-a-matic last fall, more expensive, but far better results.

I know you can build a system for a lot cheaper than I did! I just love the fact mine hooks up to reclaimed water.

It works fine, I was worried about salt etc. build up, but most everything has been fine, and I am not using drinkable water.
