Does anyone know how to make a home-made misting system for as cheap as possible?

How cheap is cheap? What size of an area must you cover? How much are you gonna pay me to figure this out? (only joking, I wanted to see if you would read the entire post, lol) :crazy:

Walmart http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=5811314

or http://www.rainbird.com/ and search their drip systems for misting/foggers.

Cheap as in the amount you save from making your own in comparison to buying one is significantly greater. As far as surface area, i am mainly talking about a generalized design that can be slightly modified here and there for small or larger tanks.

My initial idea was to use a pump connected to a misting head and a timer but i wasn't sure if that would work.

Sorry, i really should have said all this before, i think it was late in the night and i wasnt thinking properly.

Oh and herefishy, $5???

perhaps an old power head, a short piece of home garden irrigation pipe and one small garden mist sprayer..... should do it... :P

but im just dribbling on so i can keep this thread alive... lol

thats kinda what i was thinking but wasnt sure if it would work and currently lack the funds to buy those parts for an experiment so was hoping maybe someone had already done something.
