Condensation inside my TiT?
    #3433816 - 12/01/04 06:52 PM (12 years, 3 days ago)

The lid and and the sides of my TiT are sweating. Is this because of the difference in temperatures of my closet and the tub?

:mushroom2:  Is it between the two tubs or in the one you put your jars in?  :mushroom2:

it shouldn't be sweating at all, when things condensate, its because the coldness condenses the water in the atmosphere and it collects. your tubs should be nice and warm, causing that not to happen.

Mine does that too, its normal ofcourse with the water being 86F that damps raises up!
But does it also sweat with the lid on the incubation tub? I dont have that and have the tit covered with a large garbage bag, so there is waterdamp under it.

cause you have your tubs in a closet which is cooler then the air inside..i keep my tub in tub they are only 4 gallons great made by rubber maid..and well i use a heating pad underneath,in a small cabinet for a dresser..so it heats the whole area up to relative temps to what is inside..does that make any sense?\
admits he's a few shrooms loose...:)

If you have a lid on the incubation tub its maybe breathing moist from ur jars.
No other sources available there eller hur ?:P

Without a lid waterdamp from teh watertub will cause the "sweat".

You tell me what sense it makes that a cat pisses in a closed tub.. :wink:

Once again my TIT HAS condense, and thats not strange with water at 86F under the tub.

Yes I know their piss sucks but its no acid thats burning through a rubbermaid lid.
No makes no sense
in a closed environment with jars, the moist coming from those jars, IS the only thing making sense...

bye :P

Hrmm, it makes sense to make that its condensation. Whenever I find it, I wipe it down with an alcohol'd up paper towel and spray the TiT with lysol just to be safe. So far I have 24/24 growth and no contams. Hopefully everything will be fine. So no one sees any need to make any real changes?

Hey spliff, are you seeing any signs of drying of your jars? Because it really doesn't make sense that there would be much condensation unless there is moisture getting into the air somehow... and since the only source of moisture IS your jars, that is where I would be looking for a loss of moisture.

My friend's uncle experienced something very similar, but he doesn't have a TiT. He just set up a tank heater inside a pickle jar inside his tub.

Now... since the start of the incubation process, he's noted that the jars always start to look more dry on the side facing the pickle jar. He rotates them often to avoid over drying of one side, but it's really concerning since there is only so much moisture in those jars and it kinda needs to STAY in those jars.

So he took some tin foil and covered a little more than half of the jars in hopes that it might help keep the evaporation down. He left some uncovered for comparison purposes. (To see A. how much drier they look compared to the others, and B. whether or not growth slows down from too much co2.)

Everyone tells him that it "shouldn't" cause evaporation in the jars, but the fact remains that it really seems like it's doing so... build up of condensation inside the tub, plus the jars looking drier on the side facing the pickle jar.

Note: The temperature is balanced and even throughout the tub (wrapped it in blankets to help keep balance) so he really doesn't get why this would happen... but sure enough, it keeps happening.

They are growing pretty well so far, but he is somewhat concerned that the jars are going to stall eventually from lack of moisture.

I have some ghetto rigged liquid cultures that only have tyvek lids and foil on the tops, could it be evaporation from those? All of my jars have tyvek + disc with only 4 1/4" holes in them with foil on top of that. I just don't see it being moisture loss from my jars, plus they're thriving.

Yeah but if your tub is closed, your jars are closed what is it then?? Is ur tubs plastic evaporating? :grin:

Waterdamp can evaporate through tyvek Ive just read that today here on the forum. But you say there is (airtight??) foil over the tyvek?
