Humidity too high with 4 pop bottles, help!
    #2535542 - 04/07/04 04:14 PM (14 years, 20 days ago)

I'm using an ultrasonic humidifier through 4 bottles for my setup, and at the minimum setting the humidity is still at 100%. Any suggestions on how to lower humidity to a reasonable level. Also, instead of using a plug to drain the water at the base of the container, could pearlite be used to absorb excess water runnoff? How would adding pearlite effect humidity if used? THanks everybody.

Set the humidifier to run on a timer, adjusting the time "on" 'till it provides the optimimum level. I would think that a drain hole is still the best, as it would provide a CO2 outlet as well as a place for the displaced air to go allowing for adequate exchange of stale air. Perlite + excessive water = contamination vector...

is a timer necessary in all cases? like could I have my humidifer running 24/7 hypothetically? I do notice however that after about 12 hours of running, the first bottle doesn't have condensation in it anymore...I have no explanation (doesn't appear to be clogged), and when I drain the water at the bottom of the humidifier, it starts running fine again, any thoughts?
