incubator temp problem
    #3906627 - 03/12/05 12:50 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)



I have a serious temp problem with my incubator. i am testing it out so i left it over night, it only got up to 72. The heater is a fully submersable 20 watt that is set to 90. I checked the water and it does get to 90 so the heater is fine. The water level is at the green line when i put weight on it so it will not float.I insulated it with a blanket and put a towel to fill the gap in between the tubs. Can someone help me or tell me what i am doin wrong.

Edit: Got a better pic

To much water first. That looks like a hell of a lot of water.

Second 20 watts is pretty low, i use a 200 watt, and it sits at a peferct 85.9 degrees.

Third, what kind of thermometer are you using? Is it in the middle, at the top, at the bottom, has it been calibrated etc etc...

Props to you for doing a dry run, its well worth it. I did a two week dry run on the entire process, and so far my first grow (knock on wood) has gone flawless.

What size containers are those.

Change that it is a 50 watt heater but it says it is good for 5 to 20 gallons. The thermomiter is the white wire in the pic, i have it taped to the inside tub with the senser hanging in the middle. it does not say how big the tubs are but i would guess the larger one in 2 gallons and the little on is 1 gallon.

ding ding ding!!! last i heard, their supposed to be the same size, i say your heat is escape through the space created from putting a "1 gallon" on top of the "2 gallon"....just my 2 cents.

What Victor says is sanity.. :grin: If you push the tub in real deep then temp may also rise a little.

Buy a 2 gallon upper tub as well!
