bringing my rh up?
    #3625752 - 01/13/05 11:32 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

im using a poor mans pod with perlite. the perlite i have seems kinda fine so i tried not to compact it. it is Scotts brand perlite. rh is at 89%. i think the perlite is interfering with the pump/bubble wands. it is an adjustable pump for 30-80 gallons. currently running at 80 gal. 4 inches of perlite and water is 1 inch below the top of the perlite. suggestions for bringing rh up?

you should hear the water bubbling. if that isn't the problem then how's your temperature? at 76 deg F?

i plugged my two holes up top with tape and put a heavy backpack on the lid to seal it better. went up to 91%. should i worry about fresh air exchanges now?

By no means am I a pearlite expert but if you have 4" of pearlite and 3 " water i think you have to much water ...
the pearlite will act like a wick and suck water up to the pearlite on top. the more wet/damp pearlite you have in contact with the air the higher it should drive your humidity.
My FC has 2.5" pearlite with mabey 3/4 " of water. i use a 12" air wand and just layed it on the bottom in the center. only need 1/2" water to cover it. my hydrometer has yet to read RH<97 and i have holes at the top for air exchange.
I do still like to fan manually as often as possible but I run my air wand everyother hour for an hour.
hope this helps
