Water pump for misting nozzles
    #3158464 - 09/21/04 01:22 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Does anyone know of a small cheap water pump that could operate a few of the fine mist nozzles on this page:

http://www.fungi.com/tools/humid.html

Paul wants to make his own mini air handling unit. He's done a PMP and now he'd like to try something new but he doesn't know all that much about water pumps. He'd like to use a pump because there is no convienient water hookup and he'd like to add peroxide to the water before it is  pumped

Paul says thanks in advance
:crazy:

What is a typical operating pressure of a pond pump?

All small pond pumps pump at around 7.5psi where as these mister require 30 psi minimum and are recommended with pressures between 45-60psi so you'll need a much better pump than your planning. This is a field that I am well aware of being the aeroponic junkie that I am! You'll need a pump capable of at least 30psi for a halfass mist or 60psi for a extremely fine heavy fog. GL

it varries by manufacturer, the specs may or may not be on the box,
they also may be sold as statuary pumps, the pressure wont be too high
though

Hyphae

You figure hydro stores have such pumps?

Also look into a coolmist or sonic humidifier. You can add the peroxide to the water with that, and it's a little more tried-and-true method around here, I believe.

Not telling you what to do, just suggesting. How much is that pump setup gonna run you? Coolmist - about $30 at Wal*mart. Go to a pet store, pick up some rubber tubing... not gonna add a whole lot more. I can see a coolmist setup for about $40. Look at Magash's rye tek in this forum for his Martha setup, it shows how he set up his coolmist. Granted, he spent more money on it, but it'll give you an idea as to what I'm talking about.

There's a cool mist sitting on my counter right now. I just want to build something without a bunch of duct tape for once.

Ahhh. See, I wouldn't use duct tape myself, probably some silicon sealant or caulking to seal... but I see where you're coming from. Like they say around here, "If you cant duck it, fuck it."

Might be what your looking for. Dunno if you wanna pay that much. Also if your interested in a whole system they have kits with nozzles and tubes and everything. For a bigger selection just look on the web for vivarium supplies.

If your gonna go that route then the 45 PSI DIAPHRAGM PUMP would be your best bet. I recommend going with an ultrasonic and a coolmist combined for a totally self-contained automated system. Coolmists have a tendency to introduce more fresh air than RH If placed outside the chamber/greenhouse and can actually lower the RH somewhat (down to 85%). But if used in conjuction with a ultrasonic you can create the perfect environment for shrooms IMHO. Also Fogger setups can work sweet when combined with proper FAE (fresh air exchanges) for example Homer2's fog two 4 tier greenhouses perfectly, they are rather expense ($300) and use mini ULPA filters and are only for the most serious growers who like to spend money! :wink:
