Default Misting pump or system

Hi there, I am a newbie who just finished putting together my new orchid greenhouse and need to buy a misting system or just a misting pump.
Some of the ones I have seen on the web are super expensive.
Does anyone have a suggestion?

Jerry

Full sized greenhouse? If so I have used Texas Greenhouse Company, Inc.: Fog Systems when I ran a greenhouse in Oregon. They are really easy to use and very fine mist (equiv. of Mist King on a huge degree bigger!)

Default Misting system

Ross, thanks for the info.
It's just a 20'-0" x 10'-0" greenhouse.
I did go to the Texas Greenhouse website, they say they have a misting system, but they only have a few far away photos not even showing their system, no info, no nothing?

Give them a call. They have great product (or used to) and good to great service. Think they got tired of updated web pages? It's worth a call IMO.

What kind of water are you planning to use in your setup?

The fog nozzles from Texas Greenhouse will work fine with well or city water. I ran them for years in southern Oregon with a timer controlled solinoid valve. Didn't use a pump.

Thanks for the reply's.
In my last greenhouse (I moved 10 yrs ago) I used City water here in Ventura County with solenoid and misters (with a calcium filter) and the water must have more impurities than Oregon because after about 3 months everything had a white haze which was realy hard to clean off.
I am going to use a reverse osmosis system and water storage drums with a pump, I have the misting system but can't fine the company I bought my last pump from.
It was 115v and could run dry if something went wrong.

Thanks again,
Jerry

Be sure you have the water stored in light proof container. YOu don't want algea growing there.

I have these pumps if you're interested. Not sure which type of nozzles you have and what their flow ra tes are.
