Inexpensive Hygrometer?
    #395742 - 09/16/01 01:06 PM (16 years, 12 days ago)

Anyone had luck finding an inexpensive hygrometer offline? Yesterday I looked at Lowe's and they wanted $25.00. Do I need to pay that much?

Cheap hyrometers that are available at stores like Walmart, Kmart, Lowes and Home Depot are not made to operate at very high relative humidity (rH).

You can buy a precision hygrometer from this place. Its specs are:

Operating Range: 32? to 240?F.
Accuracy: ?3% relative humidity, 25 to 95% range.

They also offer some other diffent hygrometers; these can get very expensive if you want very very accurate ones.
When buying a hyrgometer you need to look at its specs. If the package does not offer its operating specs than it probibly is cheap and will not work.

Buy a cheap analog hygrometer with a calibration screw.
Calibrate acording to this:
"Analog (dial-type) hygrometers are often shipped from the factory out of spec. To calibrate, you need plain table salt, a few drops of water and a see-through Tupperware container with a tightly fitting lid.
Place about 1 teaspoon of salt in a small shallow open container, such as the cap to a jar. Add a few drops of water to the salt. You DO NOT want a solution or to dissolve the salt, only get it damp. Place the container with the salt solution in the Tupperware container. Next, place the hygrometer in the Tupperware container face down. This will allow you to view and check the reading of the hygrometer before you open the container. CAUTION - do not spill any salt or solution on your hygrometer! Place the lid on the Tupperware container making sure it fits tight. Allow to stabilize for at least 6 hours. Without opening the container, check your reading. It should read exactly 75%. If not, note the deviation and or adjust the hygrometer."

Hi :smile:  I`m not sure if you have PetCo. out there, But i spent $5.00 for a lizard humidity gauge and it works like a champ. You can watch the humidity drop about 5 degrees just from fanning so you know it`s working good. I`m sure most pet shops would have one .

Radio Shack has 2 different digital thermometer/hygrometers ($25 and $30) which are very accurate. Having an accurate gauge is a good investment.

Peace

i went to a PetSmart here in my city and found a combination pak, thermometer and hygrometer for $12.00. its used for amphibian tanks. try your local pet stores. if they sell lizards and such they will have some pretty inexpensive ones.
