help! can't get rH above 90%
    #3960074 - 03/23/05 04:41 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

ok, here's what i got: about a 1 1/2 in. of perlite with about 1/4 in. of water and a little hydrogen peroxide thrown in, plus i have a bubble stone in a glass of hydrogen peroxide as well. i still cannot seem to get the rH above 90%. when ever i open the lid, it takes a significant amount of time for the rH to raise back up.any suggestions?

Have you tried misting the walls with a fine sprayer?

Misting after you fan helps replentish that humidity you lost...

Has it ever gone above 90%? if not, its the meter..you made it sound like it normally says 99% but drops to 90 when you fan..

If you mist after you fan, and your perlite is wet, you should be fine. Most likely, it's your hygrometer that isn't calibrated and its giving you false readings.

You cant...the problem isnt that it isnt calabrated. Its acurate...the problem is it just doesnt read that high. 99% of the time calabrations dont really do shit...unless you have a meter that is just off...
