Help Me With My TiT
    #3957684 - 03/23/05 03:25 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Thought that title sounded interesting :p

Anyway, I am currently incubating some jars in a TiT. The temp was pretty steady at 82-84 before the jars went in. The room temp may have dropped and some other stuff. Right now the temp is only 75ish. I REALLY don't want to cut the top tub loose and empty out some water to turn the heater up.

I am not sure which will work:

Take some water out (less water should mean higher temp in the remaining water using the same power)
Or
Add a little more water (more water means more surface area of the inner tub covered by warm water)

Anyone know which will raise the temp the most? Should I just try both?

try wrapping it up with sleeping bags or othe insulating materials, other than that if you add more jars itll go up!

I just realized you said it went down right after you added the jars, how long ago was it?

If TIT is setting on a cold floor :crazy2:, slide something under it - as insulation.

Actually agar might be right, the floor is pretty cold. Will try putting something underneath it. Will try insulating around the outside as well.

I checked the temp every couple hours two days before jars went in. Was pretty steady. Jars went in 2 days ago, didn't open it yesterday, temp was down today.

I keep my Tub in Tub sitting on top of another rubbermaid...so the TIT is raised off the floor.

I have a cold cement floor in my grow room.

So raising it off the floor might work too.

good luck!~
