How many misters do I need?

Posted: 3 years ago Quote
I have an area 6' deep and 55' long with various shrubs & flowers.  I think I would want to use the MLM-44 half-circle misters with the main line running down the back of the area.  How far apart should I put the misters to get complete coverage of the area?

i Have pretty much the same question.  I emailed my question before I signed up to post but would like to include pictures with my conversation to better explain my set up.  I did get an out of office reply though (5/25/12??) but I'm sure I will get a response upon her arrival.  I do have another question though, how do you t-off the 1/4" tubing?  Can you use the orange tool like you do with the 1/2"?  I have a lot of overspray though which is what I am trying to minimize to use the system more efficiently.  I also am not sure which plants to use drippers on.  I have very large beds that are primarily perennials with some bushes that I don't think I need drippers on but I do have one raised bed and a couple of pots that I think the drippers work great in.  I'm just not that familiar.  I don't have the shut off valves you all are talking about though, I just set my timer for 45 minutes each day (due to the extreme heat).  LIke I said, I'm familiar enough to change stuff out etc., but just not using the system to it's capabilities and my Lowes peeps are that familiar.  Any advice would help!
Thanks,
Jessica

As far as misters you need for your project I would say make sure that when they are on the ground or soil coverage is around the root zone of the plants you intent to water.  Traditional sprinklers spray everything down with large drops of water, so there is a lot of waste, but with misters you can focus on the lower part of the plant so the roots are getting the attention they need.  

As far as a way to Tee off the 1/4" vinyl we have that.  It is the MLT-TEE  In 1/4" vinyl fittings. Here is the link: http://secured.misterlandscaper.com/products/273-drip-irrigation-14vinyl-tubing-fittings-tees-barbed.aspx

That should help  you get the vinyl where you need it to go. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to ask, send us an e-mail or give us a call.  Thanks so much for being a loyal customer.  

Have an awesome day!
