so i got a mistking.... im really struggling on how to set up the timer, ive read the instructions on the website and it just dosent help can anoyone recommend a good video or help me?
Yeah so it is a repeat cycle timer.... Essentially you will be picking say every so many hours for this duration. If you contact mistking they should be able to message you the booklet. https://www.mistking.com/MistKing-Repeat-Cycle-Timer-RCT-24.html I did not get this one because I did not like it. I got the seconds timer so I can pick exactly when I want it to go off and for how long each time.
Get a seconds timer -- it's easier however
Lol, I just spent like 4 hours figuring out this time last night. I agree it's super confusing.... but once you set it up.... wow its awesome.
Any time!Yeah I didn’t want this one either but they were out of the seconds time and they didn’t say when it would be back in stock.
So on the box it gives an example of day on 4 secs off 2 min and I figured it out that way. Put the amount of time you want the pump (MistKing) to run for and then put in how long you want it to be off for.
So I got mine set for 10sec off for 60 minutes and hopefully it does this all day and night hence the repeat cycle timer, we’ll see. Thanks for hitting me up!
Here's what I ended up doing....Well I’m at 30 seconds now every 45 minutes with 2 nozzles in two different areas of the enclosure and one running to my veiled’s cage. It’s gonna take a few days to dial this in for sure. I have drippers in both cages as back up too. This is tricky with two different species with two different locales living in the mountains of Colorado. Any advice would be appreciated?
Yea. Line of sight gets tricky. Some people use fabric, painted panels, room dividers, shower curtains etc.I’m ok with the plumbing so far, I’ve had the last couple days off so I’ve been checking in on it constantly. I was wondering about keeping two different female chameleons together any tricks or advice. So far wrapping my panthers enclosure 3/4 has helped but I might need to tighten it up is all I can think about keeping that humidity in.
wow, that is just crazy. I'm so happy I have a seconds timer. Could they make it any harder to figure out? Now I understand why the OP was going nuts trying to figure it out.Lol, I just spent like 4 hours figuring out this time last night. I agree it's super confusing.... but once you set it up.... wow its awesome.
Basically you set the current time.
the duration of misting in the DAY (say 2 minutes)
Duration of misting for the NIGHT (say 3 minutes)
Duration the MACHINE IS OFF (how often you want to mist - i.e. 4hours would mean the machine sprays every 4 hours) for the DAYTIME
Same as above for NIGHT TIME (say 2 hours)
Then set what time you want the "DAYTIME" to start (basically when the sun comes up)[say 6am]
Then set what time NIGHT begins.[say 8pm]
After ALL that nonsense you'd end up with:
Starting at 6am you will mist every 4 hours for 2 minutes, then at 8pm you will mist every 2 hours for 3 minutes.
It's a pain... but I love it. You can also manually push/hold the up arrows to mist at will. Let me know if you need more help!
