I have a dual nozzle mistking, and it’s only been about a week or so, and it was going good but now one side is misting and the other is just spraying a stream and my girl doesn’t like it. Any solutions? Video link.

unplug, take nozzle off. try to clean with CLR or vinegar (aka clean like a coffee maker), and put it back together. Key word is unplug, else it will drain your entire tank in minutes :p

currently soaking it!! I used water and vinegar, what’s CLR?? I don’t drink coffee so I don’t know how to clean a coffee maker 🤣. also didn’t have to unplug it bc it sprays at certain times and i’ll be done before the next session lol

CLR is calcium/lime/rust. Its for cleaning out clogged shower heads, and coffee makers lol.

If you use filtered water like distilled or ro water won't happen. If your using unfiltered water you'll have to clean regularly and replace sooner. I have some heads that have been running for 1.5 years with no cogs. But I only us ro water

Did something get in your res. How long have you been using. I'm on well water. If I used my water with out filter they would cog in weeks. Maybe you got debriefing line when putting together. When I first hooked my 2nd one up I put in cabinet. Had to drill holes for line. I got some little pieces of debris in line. It did same thing yours is few days after running. I took all the joints apart and rinsed. There was some stuff in the elbow. Learned to vacuum around holes before feeding line through.

I’ll check my res but there is a filter in it. how do you vacuum around the holes ??

Ment where I drilled the wood. So I could feed lines through. That's what got me.

I would take all connections about not the masthead tip and let pump turn on and blow anything you have in lines out. Then put back on and let pump run with out tip. Then put tip back on and see if that works.
How old is misthead

Are you sure there was not air in the line for the second nozzle? Did you bleed the lines fully before putting both nozzles on?

it’s a dual nozzle, the other nozzle is working perfectly fine, I separated the nozzle and cleaned it and the part that connects that nozzle to the part where the left nozzle connects to (that was confusing ik). to me it doesn’t make sense for there to be air when the other side works fine. what’s bleeding the lines? letting them run without the nozzles? I didn’t but I will tmr bc she’s sleeping

Ok so it is a dual meaning one base connection hooking in and then two nozzles off that one. Then in that case it sounds more like you got a screwed up nozzle. I would order another one and swap the parts.
