so spent about 4 hours setting it up, and finally turned it on. There were tons of leaks at about 5 out of 10 silver brass connector sites. The fittings are not great at all. Spent about another 2 hours trying to secure the brass fittings together, wedging the plastic tubing into the housing, and even placing tape to hold it secure. It still kept leaking. In my frustration, I just tore down the whole thing, ahhhhh so darn frustrating. Out 140 bucks. The kit is so small, you will likely need to buy three of them, or obtain add on parts. Find another company people!
- good luck
I think I'm gonna go the old fashion way next time with PVC glue, and good old PVC piping.

Harder than the devil to make the brass mister connections and then they leak!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by barry Water Cooling Mister just ok!!!!
Too expensive for what you get.
it will require a booster pump and a flow regulator.
it is also too short.
With that said i had to purchase 3 units to cover the area I needed to.

Looked good but couldn't get it to stop leaking at one of the misting ports. Poor connection system for the ports.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DjaS "Straight" sections shown are not straight
While they might be straight when first manufactured, they are bent (curved) to fit inside a smaller box. I purchased this one (over the less expensive "all tube"system) specifically to have straighter lines run. Save your $ and buy the cheaper kit with the rolled tube.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Habbyguy Everything but the hose...
I like everything about this system but the hose. I bought three of these to put together a 15-nozzle system for my small patio, and drive it with one of the $99 Arctic Cove 160 psi pumps. That takes the output from the nozzles from adequate but a little anemic to not much different than you'd expect from a high-pressure system. The installation is a breeze, and the connectors are really first-rate.
The hose, OTOH, is not nearly up to snuff. I carefully laid out the runs, snugging up all the runs between mister nozzles... yet after running the system for a few hours (and after they'd been in the sun for a couple days), the hose is no longer anywhere close to tight. It's like the hose has grown 1/2" in between each of the nozzles (compared to where it was after I tacked it up and let it run for a while to "pre-stretch". I added additional anchors between the existing ones, but now I just have twice as many bumps as before... there's really not a straight piece of hose anywhere in the system.
To some, this won't be a big deal. I'm picky enough that I expected better (especially dropping $100 on three of these). My only real solution would be to replace the rubber hose with copper 3/8" tubing, which really isn't too expensive ($5 per three pack). This is really what SHOULD be in the $40 package anyway, IMHO... so budget for this if you don't want your misting system to look like a beige snake crawling around on your eaves!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Erwin0354 So Glad I Purchased This!
The kit was very easy to assemble and put up. I did not use the wood attachments that came with the kit as I put it up on metal. The actual tubing and nozzles were VERY easy to put together. Adjustments that had to be made were minor and easy. Troubleshooting was not difficult. Although it was a bit frustrating and tedious to test each individual nozzle and tube, it was well worth the effort when they were up and working. My pergola is about 20-30 degrees cooler when these are on. The extra money for the brass nozzles (as opposed to plastic) was worth it, but the price for the small amount of coverage area (I had to buy 4 kits to cover less than 100 sq. ft.) was a little much. My only real complaint is that the water tubing is an odd beige color and so on my black and dark brown pergola it looks a little odd. I suppose I could have spray painted it, but I'm not sure how long that would have lasted.

Good value; brass fittings seem quality. The included mounting brackets are usless if you are mounting into stucco. definitely recommend upgrading those beforehand.
