So what do you guys think??? lots of pics
    #1056230 - 11/15/02 05:37 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

So here is the setup my cat buit, he was wondering if I could show it to you guys to see if everything looks cool with it before he starts.
Here is a pic of the whole setup, which is made of rubbermaid container, a vicks coolmist, and some tubes.


Here is the air exchange hole, filled with polyfill that the cat picked up at that pet store.


Here is a pic of of the hole from inside, you can see the screws my cat used and then a layer of GOOP sel stuff was laid down also.


Here is a pic of of the holes on top of the container you can see how my cat sealed everythingh thing up tight.


Here is a pic on the light on the inside of the container.


Here is a pic of the timer my cat is going to use, it will run 6 times a day for 10 minutes at a time for the vicks cool mist.


Here is a close up pic of the vicks unit.


My cat is using this to check the temp. and humidte.


So what do you guys think I should tell my cat?

Everything looks good to me except I would cut a hold in that lid of your rubbermaid (where our light currently is)  and put a thin peace of plexi-glass over it, unless you are trying to go stealth?

casings take less humidity than cakes. your setup should provide plenty of humidity and air exchange for cakes but i'd be concerned that you'd have too much humidity for casings. but i guess nothing to do but try it out. very well built.

it's 56% with the vicks running? i'm a little confused. you plan to use the humidifier AND perlite? i would expect one or the other. and i'd be suprised if the vicks didn't boost it to near 100%

oh ok, so once the vicks is up and running you think that would boost it up to where it needs to be? How long/often would you say i should run it? and do you think my hole on the side for air exchange is ok? thanks for the advice, my cat needs it

you should test it out and see. my concern is that the vicks will generate too much humidity for casings but if you run it less often to reduce humidity then it won't provide enough air exchange. but your air outlet might solve that.

you should run it for a while and figure it out before putting casings in. or wait until you put casings in and then watch it closely for a day or two making adjustments as needed. i never used a humidifier like that so i can't tell you how long to run it.

Crank it up and see what readings you get.
I thought I saw a filter on the Vicks, but I didn't see the vent. Anything bigger then half an inch should suffice for the vent.

You use the timer to adjust the humidity. RH too low- run it more often. Too High? Run it less.

One little detail. I see you have duct tape closing the origional vent on the coolmist. I used the same thing and it eventually becomes saturated. What I did then is put duct tape on the inside, and then filled the hole with epoxy. Then I took off the duct tape and that sucker is sealed up tighter then a nuns twat. Other then that it looks good.

How long have you done test runs for? I would suggest having the whole system up and running for at least a week before putting anything "valuable" in them. That way you can work out all the kinks without risk.

First see if your equipment will read humidity over 80-85%.


Well- Is it on yet??

Yeah i check my meter reads up too 100, so i have set the timer up today to start running. How long do you think it will take for the humidty to get a good level in the chamber?
