Default Mist King L vs T

What's the difference between the Mist King L and T nozzles?

I'm looking to order a system and am trying to figure out what the differences between the two nozzle styles is.
Thanks

Are you talking about nozzles, or the plug-ins that connect the tubing line to the nozzles?

The T plug-in directs water to the nozzle it's attached to, but it also continues the line. The L or elbow plug-in also directs water down to its nozzle, but it stops the line there.

Naturally, if you have like five tanks and like eight nozzles between them, all connected to one MistKing pump, you'll need more T than L plug-ins. Specifically, you'd need seven T plug-ins and only one L.

^(This is, unless you have a more complicated setup in which the flow forks at some point and the same one MistKing pump is pushing water down two lines that each have to end with an L at some point. But don't worry about that now.)

Thank you! I meant the nozzles, but your explanation made me understand the difference

L nozzles only supply water to that nozzle, T nozzles would supply water to that nozzle and water would continue down the line to the next nozzle

Kinstrome nailed it, as usual, but I'd like to add: ordering more parts than you think you'll need is often a good way to proceed. Having options in the course of the build is very useful, and you can use the extras on your next build, or when you find you need another nozzle to cover a dry spot, or one clogs.

That's the way I do things, anyway, but I really like to have bins of animal care equipment lying around; makes me feel prepared.

Thanks. I tend to keep a stock of supplies much to my wife's dismay.

I bought a 20G bag of coco husk when I only needed about 2G lol

Lol. That's exactly the argument I make all the time. She's a good sport about it all.
