Hi all. I know misting systems are a topic that comes up every once in a while, but I just spent an hour searching the forum and still have a bunch of unanswered questions.
In short, I am looking to buy/make a misting system for this year's BM. We have a relatively small shade structure, so I do not need a lot of power. We will have plenty of power from solar panels should we go down this route.
From what I can tell, the simple thing to do is get a garden sprayer (3 galons or so) with a manual pump, and patch it into a misting hose. It's cheap and easy (hopefully) but will require frequent re-filling and re-pumping, and this is something I would love to avoid given that we have all this free power from the sun.
I've found some mentions of people using electric pumps for misting systems, but this is something I've never done before and it's hard for me to figure out where to start. If there's anyone who's done this and is willing to help me out, that would be awesome and i will owe you a huge favor.
