We thought it was about time that a professional quality misting system was available for under $110. Presenting the Big Apple Misting System... a superior quality misting system designed to simulate the wet/dry cycles of a tropical rainforest by producing a controllable fine mist. It's the hassle free way to provide reptiles with the correct humidity level and to provide drinking water for dew lapping reptiles. This new system is up to 5 times quieter than competing models.

We made installation unbelievably simple... just fill the self contained reservoir with water and plug in the misting nozzles. Misting sessions can be programmed up to 14 times per day and to operate for as little as one minute or up to 4 minutes per session. The Big Apple misting system can accommodate up to 20 nozzles but will vary depending on distance from the pump and between the nozzles. The misting system is extremely compact and amazingly powerful, it is designed to perform equally well whether misting a single terrarium or an entire herp room.

To enhance the humidifying effect of the system we incorporated nozzles that produce a mist so fine that it will drift with the slightest current.
Each system comes with:
high pressure piston pump (55 PSI) with 12' power cord
7 day-96 cycle digital timer (program up to 14 on/off cycles daily)
2 gallon reservoir
1 complete nozzle assembly (nozzles are compact, less than 1 inch long)
10' of premium 1/4" high pressure hose
1-1/2' supply hose
super fine misting nozzle with 200 micron screen filter
elbow connector and 4 ties
Not only did we make this system the most affordable misting system on the market, it is as reliable and of the same high quality as misting systems costing hundreds of dollars more. The Big Apple misting system is also the perfect choice for small greenhouses, orchids, bonsai or anywhere where adding mist and humidity is required.

There is one HUGE flaw that ruins any system. And that is not being able to run dry, and also not being able to run for more than 5 minutes at a time before overheating. This system has both flaws and so it is not worth it.
 
Ideally, shouldnt have a limit. And most that go above five minutes, Dont have limits.

20 minutes would be good. longer is better. Its good to give them a torrential downpoor sometimes in my opinion. :)
 
I made my own, with a diaphragm pump. I do NOT run it like crazy, every day - 10 mistings a day, most of them 1 minute, one 5 and one 10 minutes, every day.
Wed. and Sat. they get a 20 minute "storm".

A timer error had it going on at 5 PM, and shutting off at 5:30AM one time - it ran out of 5 gallons in a couple hours, and ran dry all evening, befor eI got home. GET a run dry pump. Had this NOT been a run dry pump, it woudl have died, and possibly burnt my house down!

The pump was $120, with the rest of the system being about $50. Well worth it, as the cheap pumps don't last more than a year or so anyway.

The big apple system is no good for the long misting sessions that our chams need. The pro-mist system or the rainmaker 1 (not jr.) are better suited for the task.
