Another PmP question >_<
    #4063599 - 04/16/05 11:17 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Okay, so I've got it down to the book!  Ive read all the PmP crap, and I have the same setup Mag has...  5500 Profile Pump, big rubbermade, hydroton, bubble sticks, the light, ect k?  SO I did it all, and When I tried the wands w/o the hydroton, they humidified the chamber ALOT, but I added the hydroton to 3 inches of water to 4 inches of hydroton, and for some reason it just wont humidify my 92 quart rubbermaid,  So my questions= a)Does the SIZE of the bubblewand you are using matter? my box is 3x1.5x1.5 feet and I have 2 18 inch rods in the bottom, do they need to be bigger?  Do I need to remove hydroton so the water level is LESS than an inch to the surface? or add more hydroton/remove water so its MORE than an inch from the surface? Must I heat the chamber for humidification to work? He doesnt even say I need a heater, its 72 degrees in my house all the time during these months...  Any help would be nice :smile: thx

Let it run it will work. Add a little water though. I add till 3.5 inches and then refill or add a little water when it gets to 3 inches.

anytime you need

to be quite honest i haven't got a hygrometer (yet...i'll be getting it next week). when i ran it for a few days to test, though, the sides were covered in droplets and putting my face near the opening of the tub i could easily tell it was a jungle just from breathing in the air.

i did have a lamp on for a short period of time, which is when i think most of the droplets formed, but even before that there was condensation on the sides

you want your water level to be below the rock level.

1/2" to 3/4"

sounds like you have too much water in your pmp.

They have been sent , inorder for them to show up under sent you must check the little box that says "I want to keep a copy of this message for myself".

Ahhhh Ok thx Majik, and I shifted rocks around took out a few inches of water so now I have exactly 3 inches of water all around and anywhere from 4 inches-4 1/2 inches of rocks spread throughout my chamber. and now one CORNER is humidifying awesomely, but the entire rest of my chamber has no condensation what so ever >_<  I thought a PmP was really easy to setup, or maybe Im just stupid :frown:
