Timer is completely adjustable.
Plus it's easy and fun to make.
Timing Device uses only gravity and water to control
the number of Seconds, Minutes, or Hours your Misters are turned on,
number of Minutes or Hours your Misters are turned off.
It is operated
by a balance Beam
which compares the weight of a
container of Sand,
to the weight of a container of dripping Water.
The cost is
MUCH less than the commercial units
which may be well over $200.00
are readily available,
and the tools needed to make it
are found in the average home.
Plus: it's a
fun project for a
Tinkerer or Do-it-your-selfer,
who loves to work in the warm Greenhouse on an early Spring day.
It's also fun to watch it operate like a playground See-Saw.
