Enough air exch. w/ this setup?
    #3585901 - 01/05/05 09:57 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

As you can see, it consists of a tub (24"x14"x12") in which four 1" holes have been drilled near the bottom n' stuffed w/ polyfil. A 50 US Gal. pump has been hooked up. One hose in the corner on 2 sides of the tub. Pump runs 3x's/day for approx. 30-40 minutes - cheap timer :wink:



In the past, it was manually fanned vigorously 3x's/day and that seemed to work. Just wondering if this setup, soup-to-nuts, allows for ample air exchange?? I do not have the CFM stats of the pump.

Concerned that the fresh air isn't getting circulated enough to 'rinse' all of the CO2 from the casing surface.

Salud! :spliff:

It is simply an aquarium pump that is pumping in air via the clear tubes you see. The tubes are just above the bottom of the tub.

You should have those tubes in some water(w/ bleachor H2O2) with aerating stones on them inorder tokill any contams that you're pumping in.Otherwise your only going to push as much air into that chamber as what will get pushed out the polyfill and any cracks which is probably less than the output of that pump.That tub is pretty small for you to really worry about CO2 you're prob getting rid of it just when you checkup on things.
By the way what method are you using for humidification?

Well, whether manually fanned air, or pumped air - it's the same air, but I see your point. Had some airstones and all that rot, but frankly, it was too noisy.

The casing does a good job of maintaining the majority of the humidity, but there is a bowl of perlite/h20/h202 and misting the walls occassionally keeps everything mushy. :smile:

Thanks for the feedback

Just put your aquarium pump in a cardboard box of some sort and fill it with polyfill all around. That way the air is filtered before it gets pumped into the tub. You can leave it running for as long as you like. 24hrs a day if you wish.

Hey, thanks for the advice! I think the tubes will be routed almost completely through the polyfil on the sides. Paranoid about having the pump in a box.
