Is this a good hygrometer?
    #3893956 - 03/09/05 07:50 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Is this a good hygrometer? I'm having humidity problems... I have this small mechanical one from a cigar shop which reads 65% in the same terrarium that contains another electronic one ($30 from K-mart) which reads 98%. HELP ME  :confused:



Here is the terrarium where both hygos are that read a 30% difference.

Try to calibrate it first.

The quickest way to find out is a test you can do at home. It works!

Calibrate your hygrometer

damn... I just calibrated it and it reads 45%?! I hate this thing... I'll try the other one but first... when moisture is collecting on the sides... doesn't that mean the humidity is pretty high.. like at least 70 or more????

Another easy way to calibrate a hygrometer is to wrap it up in a damp towel. You don't want it dripping wet, so squeeze excess water out of the towel and wrap the hygrometer up for half an hour. Unwrap the towel and adjust the hygrometer so it reads 98%.

Not necessarily.

I had a hygrometer like that, purchased online from a place called "A1 cigarlighters.com". It was a complete piece of shit and I finally smashed it with a hammer in frustration.
