How to set up a mist irrigation system

How to set up misters for irrigation

  1. Connect to the water source

    The line will be connected to a high pressure pump that pumps water from the source to the misting system main line. Add a 200 mesh water filter along this line to prevent clogging by sediments in the water

  2. Connect the misters

    Misting tubes will be connected to the misting system’s main line at intervals of 1M. The shorter the misters, the higher the pressure and the finer the water droplets are.

  3. Add nozzles

    Connect the 2-way or 4-way misting nozzles to the hanging tubes
