Coolmist = lower Rh
    #11298613 - 10/22/09 12:23 PM (8 years, 3 days ago)

so how does that one work?
i have a huge shotgun (i can fit in it with no problem).
RH was was up to 90-95% with just the 5 inches of perlite on the bottom. I found a cool mist on sale for $10! An offer i couldn't pass up.
i made the attachments and got it hooked up.
now my rh is no higher then 80%, so fuck that i turned it off
so whats the deal, just a shity coolmist?

So you are just shooting the mist into your shotgun? Yeah, that's not going to do any better than perlite, anyway.

What you want to do is run the thing in your room to increase your ambient RH. Then you won't need to mist as much- but still fan!

You may be missing the point of what I'm saying.
A properly constructed and maintained Shotgun FC is going to run about 95% humidity without the coolmist.
Running the coolmist into it isn't going to help it- it just disrupts the normal operation of the shotgun.

People use various strategies to humidify various enclosures. You specified a certain type. :shrug:
You wanna talk greenhouses, I can comment on that.

Strange.

Although this is not a SGFC, one would think the results would be similar. :shrug:

I have mine blowing directly into the GH via 1/2" hose and it's brought the humidity gauge to past the 100% mark. In fact, I turned the cool mist down a setting.

I'm sure it's possible to fill a tub with humid air. That's not what I'm saying. :rolleyes:
I have a greenhouse too:

But the OP claims to have a shotgun fc.

In a free society, the presumption must be that people can smoke, snort, eat or inject whatever they wish, so long as they do not harm others. The burden of proof should rest on those who would ban marijuana, not those who want it legal. That burden has never been met.

thanks
i did it for the rest of the month
kinda  halloween inspired:smile:

as for the OP's question
i think having that much air moving thru a shotgun
would drop the RH

those coolmists move a lot of air
and the mist it puts out is not that fine
:2cents:

I realize that; hence "Although this is not a SGFC".

What I'm saying is why wouldn't it work?

Nice GH Doc! :thumbup: I see you keep stuff in mini FC's.

Oh. I don't know. Why would you try is the real question. Adding a coolmist to a shotgun is like adding a propeller to your bicycle.

I guess the most obvious reason it wouldn't work is because a Martha doesn't have 100 holes in it. By having the cool mist adding positive pressure to the SGFC it is doing nothing more than pushing the humidity out as fast as it is going in (or possibly faster than it is going in). The Martha works because you do not have so many places for the humidity to escape.

is it necessary to use those as dub tubs in a GH.....does it just ensure proper humidity?

Completely depends on conditions inside the GH. I was using it as an environment for dubtubs, but you can leave them open if conditions allow.
