How to lower temp in a PMP?
    #2899908 - 07/17/04 03:52 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)


Hey any idea how I could lower temp in my Poor man's pod?! It's around 28C in there and 23C is what I need. It's just too hot in my room during summer.

I thought of using the ice packs but i'm afraid i will have to change em every 2 hours, which is not very efficient.

lemme know if you can think of something!

Get a air conditioner. I was gonna say ice packs or freeze some bottles with water in em.

Gallon jugs of frozen water. They'll last several hours. Cheaper than an airconditioner too.

you may also want to review your setup to handle the added condensation on the frozen jugs.... if they surround the terrarium they could saturate the carpet and provide mildew and others a chance to get a foothold... or just ruin lots of stuff...

I don't really understand what you mean Prisoner. I'm currently frozing a 1 gallon jug and a couple of quart jars and plan of putting this in the terrarium. Sure condensation will form on the frozen things but extra water in the geolite won't hurt?!

I'll give it a try..

Just a thought,but here is an external method which should lower your temp in there quite a bit.

Get yourself a cheap little styrofoam cooler and a couple of milk jugs. You will also need a fairly long length of airline tubing.

Fill one of the jugs about two thirds full of water. Take the airline tubing and fold its length in half so that you are holding each end together and start to push the looped end into the jug until you have enough length on either end sticking out of the jug to run one to the pump and the other end into the pod as usual. Freeze the jug with the airline in the water and place it into the styrofoam cooler. Now just run one end out of the cooler to the pod and the other end to the pump. The pump will now circulate the incoming air through the line frozen in the block of ice creating a very cold stream of air that should do nicely for lowering the temps a bit. Fix up two jugs this way and you will always have one frozen ready to take the thawed jugs place.

Good Luck!
MYKEY

Nice idea Mykey, I will sure remember this. For now i'm simply trying a 4L windshield washer plastic bottle filled with frozen water. I put this in my 18 Gallon terrarium and went from 28.4C to 24C. Seems to work fine for now but it sure takes some place in the terrarium.

Thanks for your help, that was really worth it!

freezing quart jars might not be a good idea if they are glass

Yep, you are 100% right. Froze 2 quarts 2/3 filled. Next morning, they were broken.

hehe.
