it may be a better choice, but half off is half off :D
Till you end up buying extra units....
Has anyone confirmed yet if extra head are available to run more than 2 Misting heads yet..I have 18 Tanks right now..
even at $61.00 per unit to run 2 Misting heads I would need 9 units to spray all 18 Tanks

Amazon's Monsoon (61.00 x 9 =) 549.00 vs Mistking Ultimate Value Kit (189.00 + 15 Additional Misting Heads (cheapest) X.8.99=) 323.85 does not look like much of a Savings anymore does it. In my Case I would save 225.15 by going with a single Mistking Unit.

Yes 1 Unit to 1 Unit The Amazon price is better but when you add-on for additional tanks the saving Quickly disappears..

To Many reports of Loss of pressure when you add DIY Misting heads to the Monsoons..Lack of Additional supplies..Still not enough good reports on the Monsoon

Yes, extra heads are available, they're like 2$ each but i've heard it can greatly loose pressure with even 3 nozzles.

ditto. I had a monsoon (replaced w/ mistking) that I was running two stock heads, and a total of 4 ADDITIONAL homedepot sprinkler heads, and had zero problems w/ pressure. and this was total supporting 3 tanks.

If one were to break could we replace the pump with a stronger pump?

I purchased one of the v1 units when they came out from a local store at a great discount, like you I figured I would give it a shot for the price and put it on a display tank I had in the living room. This thing was plagued with issues the most frightening of which was when I came home from work after a power outage I walked in my door to my basti tank completely flooded with the water being 4 inches above land and the frogs hanging on for dear life to the wood (Lost 2 froglets in the disaster that I guess couldn’t make it up high enough). Don’t know if the issue has been fixed but.... after a hard power cycle like what occurred with the power outage it turned the system to "on" automatically leaving the system running until someone powered the unit off. I would never trust one of these units again, my frogs lives are not worth the cost save. I truly hope you have a better experience then I did.
