Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JackOfAllTrades Great Value,has some issues but it is up to the owner to minimize them
I found the price & the operation to be simple & here is suggestions to avoid problems which most of the non rigid systems encounter as well as rigid units.
1)Install the line with least flexing of the system when turned on.
2) Use the water sediment filter to minimize the misters to being clogged.
3) Use the low volume flex tubing with low water pressure.
4)Once in a while remove the end mister to clean out the system.
5) If you use the system many times invest in a hard pipe system. Either Copper or Schedule 40 permanent install.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Patty1234 Orbit 1/4" Misting System
I just installed the Orbit Misting System in my horses stall. It took about 10 minutes to do, really simple. Makes a huge difference in air temperature. My horse loves it, just stands under it for hours. Very inexpensive way to keep your animals comfortable. Even if it only lasts for one summer or even a couple months, I recommend it highly. I bought a few extra to keep on hand, great price!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KimC Used for cooling animals
We purchased these to use in the 90-100+ degree heat this summer. We hung them from the barn ceiling and had a fan blowing from the side. These really helped cool the barn for the horses. I'd find them all grouped underneath the misters in the evening so I know the horses thought they helped also. They do tend go get the floor a bit wet but it's worth it to keep the horses comfortable. I also purchased a mistymate and both worked pretty much the same.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rstex nice product
installed this in my barn for the horses. the drips are pre- installed all you have to do is screw in the jets. the mist is very fine and light, blowing around in the breeze and does not soak or spook the horses. I am pleased with this item as it lowers the temp. quite a bit without getting everything wet. uses very little water pressure and works off a timer very well.
I didn't use the clips that it came with it, as I use it in a permanent location. If it were moved alot the tag clips would work fine

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BF500 Great Misting System for the price
Simple 5 minute install. High quality brass misters. Nice mist cools area instantly.
Only negative is that these do not interconnect if you buy more than 1 to try to make them longer. It can be done though. I bought 2 sets and some extra 1/4 drip system hosing and connectors. The hard plastic hose did not fit the connectors even though they were both 1/4 hose. I carefully used a drill and made the opening in the mister hose a bit larger and it connected and worked perfectly. I now have a custum 20 feet of misters with a 16 ft supply line for about $30.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SteveW Great product for just a few dollars
This was easy to set up. In about 10 minutes it was ready to hang, and the clips are similar to what you use on a workplace badge. The timer is simple, just rotate it and you've got mist. We use it to cool our chickens in the TX heat of summer. Great product for just a few dollars.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Clumbermom Perfect for our use
This is a very simple unit to set up. We attached it between a tree and a post, then just ran the hose out to it. The spray nozzles don't all face the same way, which seems odd and a little inconvenient as there is no way to change that. If there is any breeze at all the mist still blows all the same direction though. If there is no breeze, this could be problematic.
We have used this unit regularly under that tree during really warm days and it does make a difference, though I haven't checked to see just how many degrees of difference. Sometimes the mist is a little heavy so we keep library books and papers protected.
Knowing ahead of time how you want to use the system helps greatly in choosing the appropriate length - we chose the short one on purpose, and it is perfect for our use.
