idea for cool mist modification
    #1904849 - 09/11/03 12:13 PM (18 years, 1 month ago)

OK, I've been following the epic pmp vs. cool mist debate this week and came up with an idea. One of the advantages of the pmp is that is distributes the air more evenly. To get better circulation with the cool mist, what if you modified it as follows: instead of having a single input hose on top of the chamber, run two 5/8" hoses from the cool mist into the bottom of the chamber. Bury it under the geolite and cut a series of 1/4" holes along the hose to allow the air and mist to enter the chamber. Then cut one or two holes in the top to allow air out. Or, alternatively, run the two hoses (again with holes in them) along the top and put the exhaust holes on the bottom. Then set the cool mist to a timer as needed. Do you think this would work? Let's hear from the pros...

I don't think it would be a good idea to place the cool mist's tubes under geolite or perlite 'cause a cool mist is not an air pump and probably doesn't have enough pressure to bubble through the water, but the concept is really good. I've been thinking about modifying a cool mist lately with some sort of air difusion as well. Longer tubes that extend into the terrerium that have smaller exhaust holes on them is what my friend is going to try. It's nice to see other people coming up with similar ideas. It's always great when a thread like the pmp/coolmist debate generate some improvements and re-thinking of old teks.

I am all for rethinking of old teks, but surely this adaptation would only be neccessary if low humidity in the pmp was a problem? I have had to reduce my hygroton layer because humidity was too high, and that's with 0.5 air exchanges per hour. Have others had problems with low humidity?

Still, it's a nice idea.

Yes, a cool mist just uses low flow air run through a sponge to to increase rH in the air.

Some of this rH will condense on the walls of the tubing, so make sure the tube will not get clogged up. Make it all run in one direction so water will flow off.
