Solenoid Controller/timer for misting? (Many start times)

MightyMicroApril 11, 2013

Looking for a controller that could have my misters go off for a round a minute and half every 15-20 minutes.

I'm using an electric solenoid valve. The current controller on has 4 start times for 24h.

Thanks for any tips.

a little more information will allow me to help. what type of controller is currently in use, how many stations is it running.

the current timer doesn't matter much.. it can only do 4 start times a day whereas I want around 15-20.

The controller only needs to control one station.

I personly don,t know of a controller capable of that many starts. The best I can suggest is a controller with multiple programs and starts. If you set the station to run on each program with all the starts you can get around 12 possible times.

A propagation timer will do just what you want. Here are two models to look at.
