Anyone have experience building a mister using a submersible aquarium pump?

I have one crested gecko and I work from a home office so daily misting is no issue. But I am often gone for 2 nights a week and occassionaly 3. I live in a remote area and donít have anyone that can come by when Iím gone. I think a Mistking or other commercial mister is overkill for my needs. I do have some spare aquarium equipment and was thinking a submersible pump with a 6-8 ft. lift capacity might work. I can put it on a smart plug and schedule it to run for whatever time and duration I need.

Anyone tried this or have any thoughts, suggestions?
