You're looking at around $67 CDN when you convert 30 pounds.

Curious to know which one is so cheap in the UK and if it was a comparable brand.

I found two things online from a Canadian supplier.

One is ZooMed's Habba Mist: http://www.petsandponds.com/securestore/c2...16456278.2.html

The other is the Tropicaire Air Humidifier and Exchanger: http://www.petsandponds.com/securestore/c2...16697985.2.html

Note that the second one needs an additional item, a pump, to operate.

The first is meant to deliver different intervals of misting throughout the day. Up to every hour which is kind of cool and efficient. And the second is a mini air humidifier to keep humidity at certain levels, I'm guessing.

I might get both when I have some extra money just to try them out in different enclosures... There's some other stuff I want to order from this place. They've got really good prices.

You should think about getting it online then, half the price. And depending on what other items you order from them I believe shipping is sometimes included for free. It's worth a shot, right?

You get free shipping if your order is over $200 but on orders over $40 it's only $6.99 (from the Pets and Ponds site " We charge a flat shipping and handling fee on Canadian orders valued from $40.00 to $200.00 of $6.99*. For orders over $200.00 FREE SHIPPING will apply*(see below for few exceptions). Orders valued at less than $40.00 will be charged an additional handling fee of $6.01. All shipping rates on based on product value before any applicable taxes. Please note that we do not allow any items to be picked up from our location. Certain items may be picked up from our suppliers."

Still a savings of $50+ (by the time you add in taxes) for the mister!

How is it easier to build one yourself? No offence or anything, but for me, easy is clicking a couple buttons, entering my credit card info, and voila... it appears at my door a few days later all done, ready to go and with a warranty attached to it as well.


But maybe I'm weird.
