This is the tap/ solenoid valve setup, then it goes to a garden type most hose system on avairy roofs.

Photo didn't upload will try again. Didn't work but this is the info, I have first fitted a ball valve branched from backyard tap, so can be shut if solenoid valve fails. Then into a goyen 1/2 normally closed solenoid valve which is activated by thermostat when it hits 35 dec, also the ball valve is used to goven the water pressure to mist system. It works a treat and I'm not so worried if at work or away it will come on and cool the avairies. :thumbs:
