    Hi everyone,

    I've been a hand mister for almost a decade. I don't mind it and find it's great for filling specific broms or film cans.

    However, I'm adding a few tanks and I'm thinking about making the jump to a MistKing. Those of you that have them, what you do like? Do you find you still have to mist by hand to fill those hard to reach reservoirs? Does humidity stay more consistent with the finer mist?

    Make the jump and don't look back. I've gone away multiple times for up to 7 days. Just that reason alone is worth it. I still hand mist certain areas that need it but only once in a while. The fine mist from the mist king nozzles is awesome too. Much finer than my pressure sprayer.

    Mistking is amazing! It's a about placement of nozzles vs. Plants. But the mist is so fine it floats in the air for a bit and will usually hit almost everywhere in the viv. We have all 100 or so vivs connected to mistking. Be hard to imagine my life without mistking. LOL.

    Thank you both for your input! I think I'm going to go big and grab the Ultimate 4.0 system.

    That's what I should have done in the first place too. Now I either have to upgrade or get another system.
    Always best to go bigger, you won't regret it.

    If you decide to get the zipdrip for your system. Be sure to order enough tubing to run the loop all the way back to the pump. Couple extra 90° won't hurt either.
    Wish this detail was a little more obvious when I made my order

    Picking it up tonight, but probably won't be the first thing I set up. Thanks for the info everyone. Looking forward to unboxing that sucker!
