thats a real nice setup! congrats, hope it works well for ya! so jealous i think i may go kick a puppy
kidding of course
Wow, congrats! Nice setup.
Now you need to host a GH warming party.
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
Nice! I have an 8x16x10... I started off with a aquafogger (http://jaybird-mfg.com/), which uses force to break water up into smaller particles and then blow it out... that kept the center strip down the g/h wet always. Then, I moved to a 1000psi fogger, which puts out a great fog (not spray) but again too much. So I had to do lots of messing around to get fewer foggers without having too low a flow for the pump and finally got it figured out. It is set on a humidistat so it only runs for like 20-40 seconds at a time. Generally when it comes on the cooler does shut off from the temp drop. but in order to have something spray constantly in that small of an area... it would have to be a really low flow. And then watch to make sure that as the humidity rises, the cooling effect doesn't quit working- so not sure how that would work. Guess you'd just have to try it. Maybe get one of those much smaller "booster" pumps and put it through a few misting/fogging heads in front of a osculating fan. The booster would make the mist finer than hose pressure (they use less water that way too) so it should make things less wet, and better evaporation/cooling. That's about the best advice I can give.
If you think this is how you want to go, and would like to see what the fog from 1000psi looks like I can probably help you out.
edit: Here is what a 1000psi fogger setup looks like when not optimized for use in a greenhouse. Note all the way in the back above me you'll see the aquafogger. (This video still makes me laugh, it's just too dang much! It doesn't even pressurize until about 11 seconds (you can hear it) I fixed that problem too...)

Ah heck with it... Here is a quick video of how it runs now, I just added the 2 fogger heads to the small greenhouse about 2 months ago, it took more load off of the large greenhouse and allows for even longer run times. You should notice how much better it evaporates into the air VS the before video it was just loads of water spraying down.
Hope it helps :-p
Travis, I know! I can't wait man. It's going to be jungle! lol..
Mylesg, No kicking!!!! you're a mess lol Thank you!
Lil Stinkpot, who the DJ? W00P W00P!
Andrew, when is your second video what you meant when you said "Guess you'd just have to try it. Maybe get one of those much smaller "booster" pumps and put it through a few misting/fogging heads in front of a osculating fan. The booster would make the mist finer than hose pressure (they use less water that way too) so it should make things less wet, and better evaporation/cooling." ? I would like that in the GH. BTW thank you for your help!! I'm new to all of this & it can be overwhelming
BTW Andrew, what was up in the first video?! Mr. Fogman LOL jk that was intense hehehe
My second video is my same pump... just a lot less fogger heads. It is right at the absolute minimum flow rate, so your g/h being smaller it would have more fogger heads than I have in both mine (they are both on the same system). So maybe a booster pump, with a less flow requirement would be better... I think I had looked at one that was like cloud burst or something... The second video was just showing what I managed to make work off of that large 1000psi system.
Ok! let me search, cuz I like the look and feel of how the thick fog just floats in your GH
