Installation and Setup

SYSTEM SETUP

Overall size and complexity will determine how long it will take to install your MistAway Systems™. Installations generally take 10 to 15 minutes per nozzle. A typical installation can be installed in less than one day.

TANK SYSTEM INSTALLATION AND SETUP

The reservoir must be placed on level and stable ground convenient to a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) power source. It must also be located in an area that can be reached by a garden hose. The system can be installed outside or inside a garage, shed, or basement. It is VERY important that you make sure the ground on which the reservoir will be located is level and will remain so under the weight of the filled reservoir and under inclement weather conditions. The reservoir will be heavy when filled with the diluted misting solution. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or damage to the system. 


  • Testing your Tank System
    T
    he system should be tested prior to loading misting solutions to ensure there are no leaks and that all nozzles and valves are operating properly. Please follow the instructions in the systems operating manual.
  • Loading Misting Solution into Tank System
    remove the large white cap from the top of the system. Do not remove the system lid. Using a hose, fill the drum half way with water. Before loading the concentrates put on safety goggles and gloves. When drum is half full, remove hose and place a funnel into the opening. Slowly pour in a manufacturer approved misting solution into the funnel. Remove funnel. Replace hose into the opening and begin filling with water until the liquid level reaches just below the top or the system reads 100% full


TANKLESS SYSTEM INSTALLATION AND SETUP

The Tankless unit must be placed on level and stable ground convenient to both a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) power source and to a hose bib. The system can be installed outside or inside a garage, shed, or basement. It is important that you make sure the ground on which the tankless system will be located is level and will remain so. A level surface helps the system operate correctly. Failure to follow these instructions may result in personal injury or damage to the system. shop for a tankless system

TUBING AND NOZZLE INSTALLATION

Tools: ladder, screwdriver, pliers, drill, tube cutter, tube release tool.

Once the system unit has been installed, the tubing lines can be run to the identified nozzle locations. We recommend the nozzles be installed 15 feet apart. Click here for detailed instructions on installing tubing and nozzles.


PROGRAMMING YOUR MISTING CYCLES

Set the timer per manufacturer's instructions with times tailored to your specific installation. We generally recommend starting with two mist cycles per day each for a duration of 60 seconds. The first cycle being in the early morning and the second cycle being around dusk to early evening.


INITIAL OPERATION

Please be advised, that a large number of insects may be seen on the ground for the first week as the overall insect population is reduced by your new system. It can take up to two weeks to see the full effect of the system.
