how much air exchange?
    #2250563 - 01/18/04 03:45 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

If I have a 10 gallon rubbermaid, with a 3 gallon rubbermaid casing (that fits snugly in it) inside it. I also have a 10 gallon air pump. How long do I have to run my pump per day to get the right air exchange. (I usually just fan 4x daily). Thanks

The fanning is all you need to do. Unless your so busy everyday that you dont even have 3-4 minutes 2 times a day! Now that would be one very busy guy or gal wouldnt you think!

Im assuming that isnt even close to being you, SO.........

Stick with fanning :thumbup: :thumbup: :smirk:

Why not convert it to a PMP and run it 24/7?


*begin thread jack - sorry*
How many air exchanges per hour does a PMP provide?

Do you know how much CC per minutes of fresh air your pump can do?

10 gallons is around 38 Liters or 38000 CC. For the optimal 3 air exchange per hour, you need a pump than can make around 114000 CC per hour, or 1900 CC/minute.

Most cheap pumps are at least 1500 CC. You are more than fine with the one you have I guess. Leave it 24 hours per day and you'll get at least 57 air exchanges a day!

Nah man I hate to fan. It leads to contamns, and alot of lysol. I have the air pump in a jar with a filter disk on top so I get sterile air. It says its for a 10 gallon aquarium, I do not want to dry my casing out. How long should I leave it on to get the right air exchange? I do not need anything for humidity, I have that covered. So How long for a 10 gallon pump, and a 7 gallon air space? Thanks

Just leave it ON! :smile:

I leave mine on almost 24\7, I unplug it when I need an outlet for my guitar or something :smile:, other then that I run it 24\7, but I still fan twice a day, which is overkill maybe but I have never lost a casing yet!, I am on my third :lol:
