    Hi everyone,
    I am looking for a water control valve that I can use for making a small mist house for propagation. I would prefer to use a simple hose timer, but I need to have the water on for only a few seconds every few minutes. I have been unable to find timers that will do this. Any suggestions?

    mistkits.com. The DIG 5006-IP will let you mist for as little as 10 seconds in as little as 5 min cycles. 6 stations so you can control 6 solenoids. I would by the kit that has everything included. By the time you get done looking for all of the little things like fittings and such you really have not saved any money. I have the DIG and use it for misting one propagation bed and the other stations to water grow beds and nursery stock. Takes a little time to learn how to set it up but it works great. If you do not have a well it may be beneficial to plug it into a battery back up in case the power goes out. There is a battery in it that holds the data only. It cannot power the solenoids. If you are on a well, you will not have any power to the pump anyway so you are sol anyway.
