Cant get a working tub in tub incubator
    #2548866 - 04/11/04 05:42 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

The title says it all...Ive made an incubator per magash, the tub in tub style...

Problem is the inner tub keeps leaking and flooding my incubation chamber! :eek:

My first inner tub was tied down real tight with zip ties and it leaked through a crack in the bottom...
My second inner tub was tied down very lightly, and it also leaked through a crack in the bottom....
My third tub, i didnt tie down, but i did put a pair of bricks in it....now it has leaded as well....

I dont know why they are leaking....perhaps the Clorine in the water weakens the tubs plastic?
Also the type of tub im using is Rubbermaid Roughneck 18gal

Help!!!!! :smile2:

There's no need to tie the inner tub down, really. How much bleach are you using? A little bit goes a long way :wink:.

i use the same containers. I do not tie them down, and i do not use bleach. I only use h2o2 and water and its worked perfectly...

I didnt tie down the last one...though there was 2 bricks in it...

Actually my outer tub is all warped from the first time when i did tie down...So i should buy two more....

I wont tie them and ill use H2O2 instead of Cl ( i used quite a bit of Cl )

How often do you add H2O2? Cause i got alage the first time when i only used a cap of bleach...

Two cap fulls should be enough. It sounds like you're right about the bleach breaking down the plastic. I don't think you'll need to use the bricks either...it's okay to have the inner bin just floating on the water. Good luck :grin:.

Also tying is unneccesary
this tub-in-tub has served cujo pretty well for several months now
no leaks

an igloo cooler works good too, just build a rack, put the submersible heater below, add a tub that holds the jars or whatever, make air holes. Fill till the tub almost floats.

This heater is way cool, remote therm makes it way easy
