Incubator Idea
    #3033018 - 08/21/04 05:00 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I've read all about the tub-in-tub-with-aquarium-heater incubator and I posted a while ago about using a fridge as an incubator. I'm wondering if anyone's tried the following setup:

1. Rubbermaid tub wrapped with flexible tubing

2. Aquarium heater in a jar of water

3. Water pump circulates water from the jar through the tubing and back to the jar.

A nice advantage of this is that one water heater and pump could service multiple incubators and (obviously) each incubator only uses a single tub.

Does anyone see any problems with this idea? If you've seen it executed anywhere, can you toss me a link. That'd be great.

thank ya

I have seen it somewhere on these boards some time ago, but I couldn't tell where.
It works, yes, although the simplicity is not there with the tubing and the water pump.

Yes, no simplicity.

Anno here had actualy set up a site that discribes an absolute great incubator, its just the Bin in Bin incubator.

You can get very gadgety, and creative. But when push comes to shove, the most basic desighns are the ones that work the best.
But you MUST keep thinking and developing because we would never have what we have now if people just stuck with what was known to work and never tried anything new!

my opinion, no one will ever be able to make a better incubator than the double chamber.

Why isnt there more talk about the use of space heaters with thermostats?

LoL, I already have a 40 dollar one and it would be nice to use it for an incubator instead of buying all the stuff for the tub and tub.

I made a 2 tub incubator yesterday and put it out on my deck last night with a thermometer to test it out. It got down to 50 degrees here last night outside. Inside the tub, the thermometer recorded a low of 81 and a high of 82. Not bad at all! I got the 200 watt model, but since the temps never shot up too badly, its probably not overkill. Now, to test the incubator with something in it, OH BOY!

Someday I'll try the water pump/tubing method. If one wanted to make 4 incubators, it would probably be cheaper than buying 8 tubs and 4 heaters.

CONSTRUCTION TIP: At w@lm@rt, if you buy two tubs at a time and stack them, the checkout person looks inside the top tub but they don't check the void between the two tubs so if one were to put their aquarium heater in this little spot to "check for clearance in his/her egg incubator and then forget to take the heater out", he/she stands a good chance of getting away with a free heater. I could never do this, my balls shrivel into tiny raisins when I think such evil thoughts. If you feel like getting spanked by the w@lm@rt police though, give it a try!
