bulk air exchange
    #1321576 - 02/20/03 09:32 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

SWIM...ewhwhwh...was reading up on bulk fruiting and was wondering what schedule would be best for 4/5-way air pumps exchanging roughnecks. Any help with this is greatly appreciated as always. To ammend, this person has: one Tetratec 4-way for aquariums up to 30 gal., 100 liters/hr., one Tetratec 5-way for up to 40 gal., 150 liters/hr. and three 18 gal. Roughnecks.

}

i would recommend getting a hydrometer .put inline valves on the air tubing to adjust rh. that way you can run pumps 24/7 and have plenty of air changes .
vent exhaust air as low as possible to let Co2 out and just tweak the system till you have correct enviros .

Thanks for the reply. You're definitely further along than this guy. Do you think a pump schedule (3 of the 9 pump device divisions per Rubbermaid) of 1 hr like 3 times a day would provide adequate air exchange? This guy has to vent a little higher on the Rubbermaid?s because of the tub-within-a-tub system he's trying. Could he get away with misting as needed?--he was hoping such an amount of poo wouldn't need too much rh adjustment.

My dog found that running airpumps works but theres a better way.

The cool mist is not n place in this pic

A vicks cool mist hooks into the T
The water in the cool mist is warmed up by eather a fish tank heater or another way.(this one uses forsed air)
U can set the R/H by turning the ball valves.
The cool mist runs 15 min every 2 hours.
The air pump in the pic is used when the system is left alone and comes on for 2 hours @ 6am ,12pm, 6pm,12am
That is only when no 1 is there to fan it.
This makes it so simple.

That's a system this guy has all of the parts for, except the T. He'll have to try it out. Cool, thanks.

My dog said thanks.
I hope that helps u out.
I will soon have pics of this with fruits n it.

I have also found by heating the water u can plumb in 4 tanks as long as the cool mist sits higher than the tanks and it drops the air down the pipes to them.

My dogs going to be replumbing it as soon as he gets a chance.
He is also going to build some cheapo racks out of 1x4's with some slides so the tanks can be fanned when there on a rack.

oh yeah don't glue the pvc or cpvc pipe.
They stick together enough for no air to leak. By not putting glue on them u can dip them in alcohol and scrub them down every so often.

Heating the water is a big deal when ur messing with this big of tanks.
It won't beable to climb over 80% R/H if u just leave it room temp.
My dog was about to give up when someone said heat the water.
It fixed all problems I add more h2o2 now just n case but it shouldn't matter much.

Does your dog have a heater in the Cool Mist's reservoir to preheat the H2O?

I'm nobody.

U can use a fish tank heater. But my dog is using forsed air to heat the cool mist water now.
It just happened there was a heat vent n the floor near by. By setting the cool mist on half the vent it heats the water up.
I added a extra filter to the one on the cool mist just in case.

And I'm looking forward to the pics. Yeah, I was going to ask if it was difficult to disassemble for cleaning. IMHO, a nice and easy setup for how much there is to it.

A friend of mine took this setup and moved over seas. :wink:
Heres the pic he sent me of this systems yeild.



This is off one tank in the system each tank averages about 2 1/2--3.0 oz
The pic is of 2 1/2 oz's

Good thing my friend is over seas where he can enjoy these :wink:
So on average you will get about a 1/4 pound maybe more per flush.

Prob a budweiser :grin:

He also found out that 1 cool mist can run 4 tanks just like the ones pictured above.
The cool mist must be placed higher than the tanks and the lines from it must run semi downhill.

He also had to install a heater into the cool mist.
He says he can't wait to post the pics of the new top secret system.
Expect them in about a week.
This system will triple the output of this one.

I'm looking forward to those pics. I'm interested to see how a heater was installed. Triple = 3/4... :ooo:

Where did you place your exhaust holes in the tubs? Also how do you get the cool mist to plumb into the PVC piping? Unless my friend got the wrong one, it seems it blows out of a rather large grate on the front, how did your friend accomplish this? Are there any suitable substitutes for using plexi-glass? Thanks in advance and post those new pictures!!!
