Mistking has good prices for what you get, and building a comparable system would still require buying that type pump and nozzles.

It is very difficult to build a do it yourself for less than the $99 or so that Marty at Mistking charges for their basic package. There are people that claim they have done it, but they never take a proper "seconds" timer into account. Plus, in the end, it is still a far cry from Mistking quality and won't provide a mist with particles so small they seem to float, suspended in air.

Yup, the seconds timer and quality pump is what makes the Mist King the easiest most practical choice. If you built one yourself you could make it for around $80. But it wouldn't include a seconds timer....
