Hygrometer Antics Pt 2
    #1665688 - 06/26/03 10:39 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I bought a hygrometer and I used the Calibrate youre hygometer tek
and when I put the hygro in the bag at room temp 63.5 f the humidity reads 85%
Then I put it in the terrarium @ 79.1 and the hygro reads 96%
So is this right ? am I out 10% or 21% ??
Its a digital one so I dont think I can adjust it.

Are you sure your digital one is that off? Which digital do you have?

A german one Qualitats-erzeugnis by TFA it has just 2 buttons
Max/min and reset.
the terrarium is 18 litre with wet perlite inside an 18litre rubbermaid with water & a fish tank heater.
The hygros maximum is 99% and thats where it stays in the terrarium.

hmm ok so you went non-traditional with your choice of hygrometer...

I suggest you try the salt test again. If you get the same thing, oh well. The thing is, lets say you get 85% doing the salt test, all that tells you is that you are off 10% at 63.5 f - it is not linear, so I think it is wrong to assume that you are off only 10% in the terrarium.

If I try it again I will get the same thing.
So do I take the difference for the reading @ terrariun temp.

It won't be accurate even then, pretty sure. I mean, if that thing says 96% or above you are in the ballpark I think.

The oregon scientific hydrometer is the best! http://www2.oregonscientific.com/accessories/thgr268.html

It has always worked well for my friend, and he says it is even very accurate around that 98% RH point, which many other digital hydrometers cant live up to.
