how many humidifiers for a 260 cubic foot "martha"?
    #3263826 - 10/22/04 09:01 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I am constructing a greenhouse/martha type setup. It has a total of about 260 cubic feet inside of it.
Does anyone know if 1 cool mist and 1 ultrasonic will be enough, or will I need 2 or 3 of each?
I have also thought about making the whole floor of this unit like it were a large PMP. Would this work alone, or in conjunction with a cool mist and an ultrasonic?
Any feedback would be appreciated. :smile: :mushroom2: :rasta:

Does ANYONE have ANY experience with humidifying large areas?

your going to have to judge that yourself as it would depend a lot on the ambient humidity and such...

OOOOOOOOOOoooooooook I'm gonna take a stab at this. Now I think one of each can handle it since they are made to humidify a bedroom that usually isn't wraped in plastic. Now the only thing is the amount of time needed to get up to the levels needed. In otherwords 1 of each will probably handle it but I'd go with 2 of each.
Remember to mount the ultrasonic outlets right over the cool mnist outlets so the mist drops into the cool mist airstream and mixes better. (way better to tell the truth)

They also make both types of humidifiers in modles that can handle this area of space pretty fast but I have no idea of the cost of them.

I purchased a Vick's cool mist and a Vick's ultrasonic, I will purchase 1 more of each just to make sure it works and to not overwork the original 2.
Should I run them both 24 hours or put the cool mist on a timer?
I thank you all for your responses. Just needed to hear other folks opinions or experiences to help determine my needs.
Will post pics. of lab/greenhouse soon as it is still being constructed.
Thank you and have a great day!
Happy Trails

If anything the ultrosnoics should go on the timers..they produce a thick fog instead of just humidified air. Try out different combos. You may need one on 24/7, one on part time, couple on part time, ect. One of my closets is about half that size and an ultrasonic on a timer (30 on 30 off) with minor misting is enough to keep it up. I'd try it out with the one set. Then add in another cool mist. Then add in another ultrasonic. I think you'll only need one ultrasonic though along with the one or two cool mists.

Thanks scatmanrav,
I think people at the shroomery are mad at me over the tyvek post I made the other day. Oh well. TY for all your help in the past and I wish you many happy flushes in the future.
If ya don't see me around anymore it is because I am elsewhere enjoying the company of folks that don't shun me when I speak my mind.

Peace
