Air pump PMP?
    #3858678 - 03/02/05 07:39 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hello

My PMP stays at around 71% R.H.. I added a stronger air pump and theres much more bubbling of the water inside, should this make a big difference?

i'd guess that it has something to do w/the amount of geolite you are using or the water level and not w/the pump strength.

does your PMP look like this?

More water than that, and im using lava rock. I can see the water bubbling out of the top of the lava rock if I look inside the pod.

this shall not be the case and is the reason for you having poor humidity.

there must be about a inch of hydroton / lava rock above the water
beacuse this is where it evaporates.

you do not supply the needed surface for evaporation and therefor
do not ged adequate humidity results.

make sure about one inch of the lavarock / geolite / hydroton whatever
is above the water level and your humidity issues are done.
actually in the original pmp thread, iirc, this is pointed out
PRECISELY since this is a mistake many newbies make.
*edit*
i just saw your pic, WAY too much water in there.
infact, keep the waterlevel as it is and add about an inch of
new lavarock on it.

read my post good, all the info to fix your problem is in there.

No more lava rock until tomorrow, can I just dump out some of the water?

Also, will having clear sides be much of a problem? They are starting to heavily pin, getting pretty fat.

you want more, way more.

it shall look like this

do not pour off water, it would turn your bubbler setup in a non humificating
but drying out setup b/c the bubbler will be in shallow to no water.

if you do stuff, get it right from the beginning.
you obviously sloppily if at all read the pmp thread by magash
because if you did, you wouldnt have done these errors.

Would it be ok to add hydroton to the top instead of more lava rock?

Damnit, I suck at following directions.

I didn't wet it, but this morning it felt damp, is there anything I can/need to do?

LOL

The water level shouldnt get higher then 75% (or was it 66,6%) of the geolite/lavarock.
Like Ohmatic says it is in MAgash's PMP-tek. Read up on it. Also it is true that a waterlevel too high will give you lower RH.

Adjust waterlevel and rock on. You can also take out water by sucking it out through a flexibile tube (from airpump) and directing it into a bucket, which must be located below the PMP.
