Winter Testing Ground

The other day, we had a big snow storm here at Orbit.  Based in northern Utah, we get them quite often, so it wasn’t the end of the world, but it certainly does affect the commute.  Luckily, it gave a us a chance to test out Orbit’s new line of snow shovels.

You’re thinking what’s so special about a snow shovel, right?  Well, Orbit does have something a bit different to offer.  From first look our snow shovels may look like all the others, but the truth is we’ve manufactured the … Read More

Summer’s Winding Down, But it’s Time to Prepare for Next Year

Perhaps the biggest complaint we hear is that of clogging.  Misting nozzles have the … Read More

Mist: Not Just Cool, Easy Too

Installing mist is easy.  It’s actually quite fun as you think about the different cooling options.  Orbit sells misting kits and individual parts for expansion. 

The first step to any mist system is to pick where you want to put it.  Consider areas where you spend (or would like to spend) a lot of time.  Common areas are patios, porches, decks, and balconies.  But it could really be anywhere.  Once you know where you want mist, you need to measure how much mist tubing you’ll need.  Orbit’s Arizona Mist can expand … Read More
