The flexible pipe line can be operate under pressure normally found in homes, without the need for expensive pumps, clamps or glue. The 1/4” flexible and relatively soft tubing line is generally used as the main lateral or the supply line in outdoor misting systems installation in residential applications. The 1/4” pipe should be installed 8 feet or higher above the ground for the best result.

To create your own microclimate, follow these instructions to install the tubing line.

  1. Lay out the flexible tubing line at a height of 8' or higher and use 1/4" “C” clamps every 2' to 5' to secure the flexible tubing line to the structure.
  2. At the location where the first fogger is to be placed, add a 1/4" barbed tee at a 90° to 120° angle to the ground and to the tee add a 2 to " of additional 1/4" flexible tubing line
  3. Insert the barbed end of the fogger into the end of the flexible tubing line. Continue using the same method to install each of the remaining foggers you have.
  4. Turn the water on to flush the line and then use a plug to close the end.
  5. Turn the water on again and test the system making sure that each fogger is operating correctly.
  6. To automate the system, install a misting timer that can operate for a limited time through the day for a short cycle, such as every 2 to 5 minutes for 30 to 50 seconds.
