You can buy solenoid valves that run on 28VAC and work with a timer. I have that for a small garden. I can program watering at any time on any day of the week for any duration in 1 minute increments. These valves assume you will use PVC pipe, which I recommend.

Honestly, kingsnakes are messy. They may make a mess of the whole setup.

I recommend trying manual watering (you turn ON/OFF the pump as needed) first to see how the kings do and treat the cage for awhile. Once you figure out if it makes sense to go forward, then install automatic watering using a timer and solenoid valve.
