    I called Exo Terra again and told them and yet again, they didnt care.. so I returned that one and bought a Mist King system at the last Reptile Expo. (I havent hooked it up yet, but it looks like its built alot better)
    THANK YOU for this! This helps a lot, because I have major anxiety over my animals, expecially when I go away/ leave for a long period of time.

    I've chimed in on this before but would say your comparing a product designed by a professional who is very involved in the industry compared to a product designed by a large company that makes products that cater to pet consumers. Mistking all the way.

    Exo Terra can't help you and they are pretty useless in terms of customer service

    The Monsoon is a sleak looking system. The timer being off is probably due to the internal battery being low and need replacing.

    The Mist King Value system will come with just a pair of nozzles and a lower end pump compared to the Ultimate or highest tier Mist King system.

    Connecting a 5g Home Depot/Lowes/Walmart bucket will give you a 3-4 weeks of auto watering vs a Monsoon's 1-2 week.

    If you have 2-3 tanks that need watering, you should just get the Ultimate system which comes with a stronger pump and more nozzles and the Zip Drip adapter that prevents dripping.

    Buying an Exo Terra Monsoon is like paying for a prebuilt Dell desktop. Buying a Mist King is like getting a quality gaming rig.
