These fogger assemblies from Rivulis Irrigation are an excellent fogging/misting solution for your greenhouse or shade structure, that really do not drip.
If you are looking for a way to:
cool your growing space
wet your plants between deep watering
....then these fogging assemblies are a great fit for you.
These assemblies work great with orchids, tropical pitcher plants and essentially any plant which enjoys the kind of environment they help to create through their very fine mist generated from clean water at typical municipal pressures (3,5 - 5,0 bar).
Each assembly, sold as depicted in the images consists of the following:
4-Way fogger, output of 10L/hr, covering maximum area up to 1m2.
Weight to keep your fogger correctly suspended.
Anti-leak valve to avoid constant dripping.
Male barb to complete installation. (Standard irrigation polycarbonate pipe included)
What you will need
25mm polycarbonate hose of at least class 6, along with the elbows and other fittings and attachments you need to complete the installation.
A punch to make the holes to insert the male barb of the assembly (Order this below)
A clean water source. If using borehole or if you suspect your water might contain sediment, to prevent clogging of the foggers we suggest an inline 20 micron sediment filter.
Purchase 1 fogger assembly for roughly every 1m2 of area.
Position the fogger so that it hangs above the plants you wish to mist, cut the supplied microtubing as necessary.
If used to reduce temperatures place the foggers in such a way that they will be exposed to draughts to enhance the cooling effect.
Use an automatic timer or solenoid to automate frequent ON/OFF cycles to keep temperatures down and humidity levels up.
I have finally been able to install my foggers and can report they create a great fog.
After some struggles I found out our municipal supply pressure is below the needed 3.5bar needed to open the anti-drippers, I still use them but with the anti-drippers (light blue part) removed, the microtubing first makes a loop above the supply line before hanging to ensure the supply line is not the highest point in the loop, this helps reduce time that they drip and stops the lines from draining completely thereby saving water. Ultimately having the correct supply pressure would be ideal.
