It is vital that you have all the parts of a misting system in order for the installation to be done with ease and convenience.
It would be best if you are able to properly assess the parts before starting any work, you have to make sure that all parts are there and that there are no existing damage in those parts. Don’t just go with the parts immediately and do a guessing game as to how those parts must be installed, you have to read carefully the manual prior starting it. As for the fogging system pumping unit, this should be well assembled and will start to function once the water is put in it and there is a good power source.
You must also be cognizant with the place where you intend to put the fogging system unit so that it will not get damaged easily. The primary consideration of the place where you must put it is the power and the water source; this should be place near those two so that it can function.
If you are able to connect the mainline to the fogging unit then you can proceed to the next step in installation. There are some that uses a flex hose and stainless steel for the mainline (this is the line that connects the misting unit to the area by which the nozzle line will be placed) There are those systems that make use of stainless steel suspension cables for the nozzle line, if this is the case then it should suspended from both sides of the place you want to be misted. There is also what you call a turnbuckle that is placed on a one end of the capable so that the tightness can be controlled furthermore in order to avoid uneven positioning of the line; a support cable is installed for every 10 feet.
The zone valves must also be installed properly on the cable lines or on the solid surface. Afterwards, the installation of misting lines should be done. If you intend to use a misting system that is made from stainless steel then you must utilize a nozzle line that is 20 feet long.
It is already a known fact that most misting systems are using brass fittings to adjoin 20 foot lengths. If the misting system is meant for brass fittings then you will more likely find a rubber “O” rings. If the “O” rings are not installed in both sides then the entire system will not be water-resistant. It is not also advisable to use a very tight union for the “O” ring might break down and penetrate the system. It is also recommended to use a drain valve at the end of the nozzle line. These are just some of the basic things that one must know in misting or fogging installation.
