    hey i use tap water for my mister and i was wondering if mist made by mist makers are ok for cps... it is something like steam right?
    A lady went into a grocery store and looked into the turket section. She needed a bigger one for her family, so she asks the stock boy: \"Do these turkeys get any bigger?\"

    The stock boy replied: \"No ma'am, they're dead\"

    It is risky as you may run into problems the tap water getting into soil. Plus the tap water from the mister will leave water stains after awhile. I would sugjest disdilled water.

    No, it's not like steam. Steam is caused by water that is heated to suck a point that it boils and only the water can become airborne. Minerals and such stay in whatever the water is being boiled in.
    In a misting situation anything that is in the water is being forced through a small hole and forces water and everthing in the water to become airborne in smaller particles making it a mist.
    So, no. I wouldn't say it is ok for cps.

    If I remember correctly these using soundwaves to disturb the surface making the fog also makes the impurities become airborne. Again, I wouldn't recomend it. I know using water other than pure water will also damage the fog maker over time.

    As in mister are you reffering to an actual water pump with a mister nozzle or a fogging device like an ultrasonic humidifier? If you're talking about either, no water that comes out of them (if you're using tap which you are) is NOT safe for CP's. If you are usuing it you might as well water with you tap. If you want to make your own distilled water you could boil some and make some condensor coils out of copper tubing, it's a bit of hassle but safe....just an idea.
