The K031 Fogger/Mister Kit is The Drip Store’s custom kit specially designed for propagation, cooling, germination of seedlings in greenhouses and nursery benches. The kit contains a digital battery-operated controller, 200’ of high quality 1/2" drip hose with .600” ID x .700” OD and all the parts needed to install a fogging/misting system for up to five benches, each 10’ long by 3’ wide, or for spacing of 3’ x 4’ for full coverage.
The fogging/misting components include 25 360-degree four-way foggers with 1-gallon per hour (GPH) per outlet. The four-way fogger/mister is a complete assembly with 12” micro tubing, leak proof shutoff device and barb. The fogging/misting assembly is installed in inverted position every 3’ between the foggers, 5-6’ above the benches.
The fogger/mister kit contains everything you need to implement a fogging/misting system from a controller to the end of the line. Included in this kit are a 3/4" filter, and all the fittings and accessories needed to install the system.

Installation for K031
This fogger/mister kit has all the parts needed to start the irrigation system connecting to a faucet. The Drip Store also includes instructions on how to start the system from a PVC pipe or a pipe thread.
Starting the irrigation system from a faucet:
Use the 3/4" MHT x MPT nipple (model A010) to start from a pipe thread
From the faucet use a battery-operated controller (model C001). Connect the controller to the faucet.
Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to the controller (model A015).
Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device if used, or directly to the controller male outlet.
Optional: Starting the irrigation system from a PVC pipe:
Glue to a 3/4" PVC pipe a PVC female adapter (model P357) (not included).
Use the 3/4" MHT x MPT nipple (model A010) to connect to the pipe thread making sure to use 3-5 rounds of Teflon tape.
Connect the 3/4" FHT X MHT battery-operated controller (model C001) to the nipple.
Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT backflow device to the controller or to the faucet (model A015).
Connect the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter (model F300) to the backflow device, if used, or directly to the controller male outlet or faucet.
Steps to connect all others components:
Note: In this installation the main laterals have to be installed 5-6’ above the benches and the fogger/mister assemblies are installed into the laterals in inverted position.
To the 3/4" FHT x MHT filter connect the 3/4" FHT swivel adapter (model LF503).
To the 3/4" swivel adapter connect the 200’ of 1/2" drip tubing with .600 ID x .700 OD (model T060) and run the drip tubing into the greenhouse or nursery, raising the drip tubing 5-6’ above the benches and perpendicularto the benches.
Near the center of each bench cut the drip tubing and connect a 1/2" tee (model LF005). Use one tee for each row and for the last row use the 1/2" elbow (model LF007). To the tee or elbow connect the 1/2" drip tubing and lay it along the center of each bench at a height of 5-6’ above the benches. For full coverage install the drip tubing every 4’ and the fogger/ mister assemblies every 3’.
Turn the water on and flush the line, and then close the end of the 1/2"drip tubing using hose end (model A006).
Use 1/2" coupling .700 O.D. (model LF001) to connect additional 1/2" drip tubing, or for repair.
On each lateral install the first fogger/mister 2’ from the 1/2" tee and then install all other fogger/misters every 4’. To install the fogger/mister assembly, punch a hole in the 1/2" drip tubing using the punch (model A019) and insert the barbed end of the fogger/mister assembly (model GD410-12) into the drip tubing. Using the holepunch, create a hole in the lateraldrip tubing by pushing and twisting the punch into the hose. The hole punch has been specially designed to quickly create a clean hole that contracts within moments tocreate a leak-proof seal around the inserted barb.
Use plugs (if needed) (model SF007) to repair small holes in the 1/2" drip tubing.
How much time to water: Turn the water on for 4 to 6 minutes, four times per day, and check the irrigation system. If you need less or more water adjust the time on the irrigation controller. The goal is that all the benches regardless of size will drain at the same time. Program the irrigation controller for about 2 to 4 minutes less than the time it took you to test the system and the benches to drain. Run the system every one or two days, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two check the pots, soil, and the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time, as needed.
