Default Mistking Question

Anyone know how many nozzles the regular pump can power? Their site says 2 to 10, but wondering if anyone has any experience going further than that.

I am using 8 nozzles. when I tried for 10 the spray wasn't as fine. maybe if I pressurized from both ends it would work ?? I have had my setup for 5+ yrs. and have ran it dry on several occasions and it still works great.

I got around this issue by just putting the nozzles on different stations. I have more than 10 nozzles total connected to 1 pump and reservoir, but only 2-3 are on at any one time.

Bonus: I can have different misting intervals/time settings for each station to accommodate the different species I keep.

This is what I'm looking to do. I'm setting up my isopod cultures in their own section on a rack and wanted to set something up where I could have them automatically misted once a day. I've got about 12 containers now.

How are you making it so the pump is rotating what nozzles it sprays?

I'm using this propagation timer:
Propagation Timer - Electric, 4 or 6 Stations that time in seconds

and it controls a solenoid on each station. I bought the solenoids on eBay, similar to these ones:
1 4" Plastic Push in Quick Connect Solenoid Valve 12 Volts DC or 120V AC | eBay

You'll need to be able to do some basic wiring to make this work.

I also like to get extra misting nozzles, tubing, etc from here:
