Over humidity
    #1260941 - 01/30/03 08:06 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

I'm using the perlite humidity tek and I works great. The problem is I'm getting too much water now. Water is sitting on the walls and the roof despite the vasoline I put on it. I tried to put in what I though was an inch of water on the bottom of the tub when I put the perlite in. I'm not sure how you can tell if its an inch or not because you cannot see the water once you pour it in.
Any tips on how to prevent water from building up on the walls?

Check the water depth by sticking your finger (clean, preferably) down into the perlite and boring out a little hole that reaches the bottom.

Condensation on the walls of the chamber is just fine - even a little on the lid is OK. If it's dripping on your cakes/casings, though, then just suck some water out of the perlite with a turkey baster.

I don't ever have standing water in my perlite - just get it wet, drain, and dump in.

I'm not around during the day so I put a coolmist on a timer so that it blows out the air every couple of hours without lowering the humidity to much. :laugh:

agreed, it is basically ignoring the problem. (which is easily fixed)
