Rated 3 out of 5 by Rako Good mister
I like this product with the exception that the main housing of my unit leaks. Otherwise, the misting function is great. My Chinese Water Dragon loves it! Drs Foster and Smith gives great service.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Woodrat Does the job, but leaks pretty bad
I purchased this product to add humidity to my gray tree frog terrarium. After some work, I was able to set it up properly. I had to add some tubing, but not much. It does an excellent job producing a fine mist.
The reason I gave this 3 stars is because the pump leaks. When I first received the product and tested on the counter top, it leaked from the pump side (the tank is the other side). I thought it might need to be mounted on the side of the terrarium to function properly. Installing on the side of the terrarium does not change anything.
On the 15 sec spray setting, it doesn't leak too bad as long as you wait 6 hours between events. However, misting longer (30 sec or more) or more often causes a significant leak (~1/8 cup after 45 seconds). I can't figure out the problem and don't want to take apart the machine for fear of voiding the warranty. I have to place my terrarium on my metal filing cabinet and now it's rusting...
Admittedly, I haven't contacted the company yet, so we'll see what they say.
