evaporation
    #1245282 - 01/24/03 08:43 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

How quickly does water evaporate? My incubator is in the stealthiest location, but to get it in there, i had to like put em in sideways and bend em a bit.

Once theyre in there they fit snug, but checking on the water level would result in me having to move a lot of shit around and probably spilling the water inside.

Id just like an approximation, if anoyone knows to how much water evaporates over periods of weeks.

Im using a 50 something litre rubbermaid for the bottom half, so Im sure i can fit enough water in there that would last the incubation period...

But id still like to know if anyone knows.
I dont know if it helps, but im using a 200watt aq heater, and im going to shoot for like 85 water temp.

it sounds like you're using the container-in-container submersible aquarium heater incubator. i would guess that you wouldn't need to add water very often, like maybe never during incubation.

i use the upright aquarium heater in a jar and i have to add water every couple days.

yet another reason for me to improve my incubator, i guess.

I used the container in container incubator with the same type of rubbermaid tub. After 5 weeks of continuous incubation, I never noticed any water loss. If there was any, it was minimal enough to not have to consider it.
