Hygrometers
    #3000806 - 08/13/04 03:00 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

im thinking about buying a hygrometer.

iv read allot of about how they are usually pretty inaccurate and you dont really need them and what not.

however i just built a pod and i dont think the usual method of just checking the sides to see if they are dripping will work since it has the ports for air to get out, so im kinda worried about whether or not i built my pod right and if it will keep the humidity up.

there is a cigar shop over here where i live, and im thinking about going over there and checking for hygrometers. if i was to buy a hygrometer, where would be a good place to get one? what is a good one, that someone has used and they have been satisfied with? what should i look for if i was to buy one?

The meter on the right is from Radio Shack. I took this pic the day I came up with the PMP and the meter still works great. I know they are suppose to be pieces of crap but I've had two of em (one fell victom to a pitbull when it fell of a table and startled him. The meter was a instant kill for him :frown: ).

hygrometers are useful but not necesarry, they come i handy when it comes to humidifers, poormans pods, fruiting chambers the work and dispite what you heard if you buy a good one they are generelly accurate, I go to places like Target, or Best Buy or Home Depot for that kind of stuff ace hardware and radio shack works to, any how good luck just remember ask someone at the store about the specs of the hygrometer before you buy it... me myself i use a mercury hermometer with a humidty bar on it, it is very accurate and only costed me 7 bucks no battery no nothing!

Don't cheap out. Anything Analog under $10 probably wont work good. Also, don't get from pet stores. Keep in mind, alot of analogs that arnt't real good only go up to about 85%, then stop reading.

Scientific Oregon makes a nice digital remote hygro/thermo meter. Can be picked up for around 40$. And you can check your temps from the living room or somewhere else 90ft away. They also are expandable to i beleive 4 diff sensors (not positive, but more than one). So you can monitor 4 chambers with one monitor to check. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=48624&item=5714940701&rd=1
Thats the one!
