Re: Cooling plants with mist?

The one I have just attached to the outdoor faucet.  They sell the kits 
at Home Depot and Lowes around here.  They also finally got smart and 
now sell inline water filter too.  I strongly recommend using a filter- 
it one had been on our system I'm sure it would work much better now 
than it does.  Some systems do require a high-pressure pump, but there 
are lots of regular ones the just hook to the regular water faucet outside.
