Incubator probelm

I was wondering if i can do a tub in tub with a heating pad. Instead of putting a aquarium heater in i could just put the heating pad under the buckets and monitor the temp. Would that work?

Yes. That should work fine, as long as you are careful.

why do a tub in tub with a heating pad. just put the heating pad under the tub and if the temp is to hot then experiment with towels to even it out. think about the whole TiT for a sec and youll understand.

Using a heating pad under a TIT, to raise the temperature of the water, might allow someone to incubate a much larger area. If you put a heating pad under a single tub the heat only be in one place, limited to the size of the heating pad.

Yeah thats what i figured. Plus it gives you more room for error with the temperature/

i beg to differ. the heat wont only be in one spot. the heat will radiate into the tub and and warm the entire tub up not just the bottom. going with the theory of a heating pad will warm one spot then the water will warm only one spot.

before you guys think im saying youre wrong im not. i think the TiT with a heating pad would work but it is a needless step. and bc tell me how it will allow room for error? the only flaw i see with the heating pad TiT is, will it heat up the water high enough to heat up the tub?

can i use just a regular old doctors thermometer to check the temp in the tub?

all the old doctors themometers ive seen only go down to 90F i believe. just go buy a thermometer that you can stick to a wall and take some temps at the jar level to make sure the temps are right. and if you do use a TiT then i would start with only about an inch or 2. but hey try it out and see what you get, experimenting is always fun.

If you have a small rheostat that you can dial control the temp with, you are fine. Most mats have have a low/med/hi setting. Which doesnt always suit your needs. As one may be to low & the other to high. A dial-a-temp rheostat will fix that, as it gives you the full range of control.

The water, which is supposed to be surrounding most of the inner tub on three sides, acts as a heat conductor- as it gets warm, it radiates its heat into the inner container, and also prevents heat from escaping the inner container.  Since heat is not static in water to the extent that it is in plastic, you can heat the water at the bottom in one spot, and the _entire body of water_ will eventually equalize at a uniform temperature.  This might not be an ideal one, but it certainly wouldn't only be warm at the bottom.

And the advice about the adjustable temperature thing is dead on  :thumbup:
