    Quick question for anyone out there familiar with misting systems - anybody know if there are alternative timers that are compatible with MistKing misting systems?

    I have had a MistKing system for about 5 years now and have been pretty happy with the pump and nozzles, but was never really happy with their timer (Seconds Timer ST-24). The quality just wasn't great. I had issues with some loose connections in the timer from day one, and after I was able to get those fixed, it was still always a bit touchy. It finally crapped out the other day and I am looking into buying a new timer for the system now. Anybody know if there are any good alternative seconds timers out there?

    If not, I'll just go for another one and hope that I just got a lemon the first time around. Figured it was worth asking around first though. Thanks!

    This is exactly what I was looking for! Thanks. I had did some looking around at similar plug-in timers, but was having trouble finding one that would allow cycles of a few seconds. There are a bunch of tutorials on how to hack minute timers to turn them into second timers, but I didn't really want to go through that headache. Thanks Ray!

    Also has the added bonus of being a lot cheaper. :)
