    just got a call from a customer about indoor irrigation , suspended from the ceiling of an indoor horse riding arena , She says its a type of mist system . Anybody have any experience with something like this?

    I believe there have been a couple threads in the past about this. You might try a quick search.

    What's it watering? Grass? Shrubs? Horses?
    Is it to keep the dust down on the track?
     
  4. When I get back home in about 3 weeks I'll post some pics of the one my sister has.

    I called netafim they gave me some info . The purpose is to keep the dust down . May be an intresting job , never installed a system without using a shovel . Probably will need a jlg lift .

    You will probably have to address winter use freeze issues.

    Thats what i was concerned about , I was thinking auto drains at low points and on either side of the valves , and using a master valve . And or having a air compressor attached to the system so they could blow it down themselves each night when necessary .

    Auto drains are a waste of water, seems like they make hangers with low-drain check valves. I've done a few consultations for dust control and figured rotors on the back side of the posts. But for cooling, LDC misters would be the answer.
