Water misters

HAs anyone set up something like this? Ive seen the on posted on the WFTW jeep but never got a reply from overbuilt customs. I don't need to buy a kit, but I do need to know how to wire it up? I believe it is an aquatec pump that will push the water through. Anyway how would I wire this pump to my battery?

POWER: The power demand varies depending on flow and pressure from 25W to 100W. Motors are available in 120 VAC.

Can't wire a 120VAC pump to a 12VDC electrical system without an inverter. By the time you add one and plug in the pump, you probably will end up spending more than if you just bought the right pump.

If you are really set on homebrewing this thing, maybe getting a windshield washer pump from a junkyard will get you started.

?

Will that be enough pressure to run 4 mister nozzles? It will be about 6 feet of hose?

Do your nozzles have a head/psi rating? What about a flow/gpm/gph rating? What is the rating on the pump? How many bends are there in the tubing? Diameter? How far up do you have to pump the water? What is the duty cycle?

For anyone to say for certain if it would work, all of these would have to be considered. Buy it and see. If it doesn't work, then you try something else or buy a kit. That is why kits cost more than the individual parts. Somebody spent time and money engineering these things (or at least trying different parts until they got it working).

Duty cycle i dont think is there to use a washer pump. its made for intermittent use. Should be easy to find a small 12v 100% duty cycle pump online.

try a 12v demand pump like the ones used on travel trailers.

Why buy a pump. Find a SST bottle and hook a hose and pneumatic switch to it. Use onboard air to pressurize the can and push the water out of the can. Simple design no pump to worry about.

What brand would I look for? All the above questions were great and I have been trying to do more research. This is something for the trail. I think the kids would stay cooler and they would just think it is cool. I don''t need continous use, just a spray now and again.

The water needs to raise 3 feet with 4 nozzles and 2 bends in the hose. I am looking at the rest of the information tonight when I get home. Thanks for throwing out some ideas.

it may work, but like the post above, a lot of other things factor into this. you might want to try to find a company that sells these systems and tell them what you want to do before you buy anything. I think the length of the tubing, the diameter of the tubing, the nozzle hole diameter, the amount of H20 to raise 3 feet (head), and the maximum pressure of the pump are the factors that will lead to success. good luck.

You are right. I am planning on calling a couple of companies to get some feedback also. Thi sight has a lot of members that know what they are doing and are very creative, I thought I would post and get some suggestions. If I can get around to it, I want it done in the next three weeks. If work and the kids allow.

It's how some potable water systems work on aircraft. I'm looking for a container and some nozzles. I want to check it out and see if I can get it to work. If I find time and get it to work I'll post it. Even if I don't use it to cool kids it would work for radiators and tranny coolers.

For the DIYers...

Home depot has misters that attach to the end of a garden hose. It is a big goofy-lookin wavy plastic pipe with a garden hose fitting on one end and two brass mister nozzles at the other end. It is meant to be free standing next to a lawn chair. Anyway, they are $9 and the two brass nozzles are only finger tight in there. I don't know if all of the stores have them or if it is just a local thing, but I bought one for the backyard for the dog. It puts out a pretty fine mist. The flow is very low and the head is very high which probably makes it a good candidate for the air-over-water pump idea.
