    Hi there! I don't really have any misters/nozzles left but I was using teffen nozzles and you can buy them pretty cheap. I do have a bunch of solenoids I would sell though. I have 30+ 12 volt solenoids plus adapters to hook up to 1/2 PVC. If you tell me how many your interested in I could give you a price.

    You'll want an aquatec 8800 pump which I don't have for sale but I do also have a pressure tank which you would need. I don't actually use HP Aero anymore (except clones/seedling) I used to use 1 solenoid per mister for instant on/off. Number of solenoids would depend on the nozzles you are using, it's kind of something you have to play around with to figure out.

    What I did was hook up just one mister/nozzle to a pump and let it spray and try to figure out how wide the pattern was of the spray and then give myself a little overlap. So If I was spraying a 12" circle I'd place them at 10" apart for example.

    Oh yeah, I was hoping for nozzles and a pump haha. No worries, thank you!

    I had a question about your setup. Did you use an arduino? Or how did you set up timers to work for the pump & solenoid? Besides the hardware, I'm trying to figure out the electronics. From what I would imagine, the pump would be on until pressure accumulates, and then the solenoid allows for a brief period of misting?
