    ISO misting pump

    I am looking for a small pump to use in my GH. The GH is only 6'x8', I have 5 misting nozzles in a system that normally hooks up to a water faucet. Not wanting the chlorine in the mist, I need something small, either in-line or submersible.
    Looking on-line is very confusing, as I am not sure just what is needed for performance, other than a 40psi max is suggested with the kit.
    Thanks in advance for any tips, help, or advice.

    pet shops and hydro stores both carry a good selection of submersible pumps. The pet stores are always the cheaper route..
    Hope you're doing well Larry.

    Thanks Mass!
    I am doing quite well for an overworked 53 yr old!
    I finally got all my plants in the outdoor GH. Just trying to get it all dialed in at the moment.
    I do have a few pumps left over from my fish store days....never thought about a mag-drive pump's ability to achieve 40 lb's of pressure.
    Ha!, now I am off to the attic for a pump and try it out.


    OK...that's a bust, the mag drive only allows low pressure/high volume.
    I need a high pressure pump it seems.

    Could you add a carbon filter to the water line to eliminate chlorine? Then you could go back to using faucet water with plenty of pressure. One of these http://www.ebay.com/itm/2-Stage10-Wh...#ht_2640wt_932 could be hard piped, or you could get a couple fittings and use a hose hook up.

    Judge not lest ye be judged creates a cesspool. Judge others and prepare to be judged by them.
    Just know when to keep the verdict to yourself.
