cool mist on bulk straw??
    #3265333 - 10/22/04 07:31 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

If one was unable to fan would a cool mist hookup work? preferably on a timer - How long should it stay on/off ? Will this give enough air exchange & the substrate should provide the rh? :stoned:

For a small comtainer like a rubbermaid u can put holes near the bottom of the tub and put air filters over them. This will give the C02 someplace to go.

there is no way we can tell you how long to keep your coolmist on...

i would run it 24 hours a day and find out how much it drops your humidity...if it doesnt effect it too bad then let it run 24/7...in most setups it does run all day,but it varies

it really only needs to be on for 5 to 10 minutes every few hours if your just airing it out. A cool mist put out a lot of air.

figure the air exchange like thus:

calculate the volume of the room or area in cubic feet (h x l x w)
and subtract from this the volume occupied by trays, shelves, substrate and other fixtures. this figure is the free air space in the room.

now take the output in CFM of your unit and divide this into the cubic feet of free air space, this is the time in minutes it takes for one air exchange.
