May I know the time set for the watering system?

Do the position face to South (if base on kitchen door) ?
The door face East, so can recieve sunlight from morning till ~3-4pm.

For timer setting,

Water springkler - 5 minutes ON at 9am

Misting/Fogging - more complicated.... it's roughly 1 minute every hour fr 11am to 5pm, after 6pm it's 1 minute ever 3 hrs until 11pm. After 11pm till 7am is 1 minute every 4 hrs. I think that's about correct.... still playing around with the timer to find the best settings.

Thanks Casey...

It's not that complicated... just 2 different timers for 2 different pumps.

I will take a shot of my analog timer system later.... I still prefer analog timer... I guess I'm old fashioned...

Tekor, you're absolutely correct

Actually the smallest timer interval I could find on market for analog is 15 minutes. To do less than 15 minute, you need to modify a little... after modification can do less than 1 minute... Will show more when I have a chance to take a shot of my timer box.

Is your 'rainforest' open for visitors? Maybe I want to camp there during the prolonged drought or during hot season. LOL

This is the heart and soul of my watering system, the timer system...

The whole setup in a weatherproof metal box


Analog Timer with built in quartz (Smallest interval 30 minutes for this unit)


This is the device making it possible to do time interval from 0 mintures to 10 minutes . It's called time delay relay (if not mistaken). Once the analog timer trigger ON, this timer will also power ON for the duration of the programmed time interval (As shown on the dial).


Main power switch using MCB.


Still in progress of moving plants in.
