TiT question
    #4124445 - 05/02/05 07:33 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Do you ever need to refill evaporated water with the TiT setup? If so, how can I tell if my water is low? Is there a way I can avoid lifting my tub and checking? Thanks!

Well as the great magash explains in his "My way" tek; He tries to fill it with as much water as possible b4 it flows over. That wasn't his quote but you get the point. You can tell when it needs mor water. Good luck... :stoned:

I suggest getting a smaller tub for the inner container. For instance i just bought a 18gal Rubbermaid, and a 14gal Rubbermaid. They both use the same size lid; I just put water and a heater in the 18, and then stack my 14 inside. There is about 6-7" of water in the 18 and the water level barely touches the 14 (it doesn't float).

Thank you Roadkill, you posted a picture of a very similar setup. I had to go to three different 'super stores' to find tubs that where different sizes, but still used the same lids (so they stack snugly;thank you Target). I just wish I found bigger than 14, and 18 gallon sizes.

This will make the perfect incubator. Very discrete, and efficient.

instead of starting a new thread, let me steal this one.

with a TiT, does the outer container lid have to fit tightly on the container? my reason for asking is that unless i find a tiny inner container, the inner one i have now floats and pushes the outer lid up when using the minimal amount of water.

also, is the water supposed to envelope the inner container, or can it just touch the bottom of the container? im not sure how i would keep the inner container from floating unless i throw some cinder blocks in it.

Not sure who it was, maybe Diver, but they drilled little holes around the top of both bins and then used wire ties to secure them together. Looked like it would work real well.

Thats who it was. Wire ties are the plastic ties you're refering to as zip ties. They tie up wire, they themselves aren't wire, but plastic.

Get a dry wooden dowel as long as your TiT is tall. Stick it down in the water, and pull it out, you should be able to see the water level on the stick:)

Drill a small hole in the outside tub where you want the water level to be and just fill it until you see a drop of water come out the hole.

yes

I have refilled my incubators...and I check them on a regular basis.

I also dump the water out and scrub them out from time to time.

I'm anal about cleaning my equiptment.  :cool:

there isn't a need to use zip ties if you use the 18 gal and 14 gal rubbermaids.

RK,

I know you will say your Tit's work great, (and I'm sure in fact they do) However, do you think it would be more of an even heating if the water were to come up on all sides of the tub as Magash's TiT's do? -wow that sounded weird.

Anyway, I just figure that with your Tit that the heat is only warming the bottom of the tub and not the sides, so the tops of the substrates would be cooler than the bottom. Or is there a non noticeable difference?

yeah, thats what im wondering too. is the heat ambient, or is there a noticeable heat source on the bottom of the inner chamber? if it were so, then i might as well stick my cakes on a heating pad.

There is no need to have the water come up the sides.
The 6" of water that is in the bottom rubbermaid...is more than enough to heat the jars inside the TIT.

I came up with the idea of using the different size rubbermaids to get more water under the top rubbermaid....so that there would be more water to heat the incubator up better.
It gets pretty cold here in the Winter!~

And I didn't want to use zipties to hold my top rubbermaid down...for several reasons.
I wanted to be able to refill the incubator and clean the inside of the bottom tub out now and then...and check the heater from time to time...and I didn't want to break the heater...and I didn't like having to shove the 2 rubbermaids together and try to ziptie them together.

I have been experimenting with incubators for many years...Alien and Anno inspired me to come up with something that would work better than their original incubator ideas.

So I have been messing around with the rubbermaids for years...and this is the setup that I like the best...its easy to maintain.

Yes...I have been using this set up for many years now.

the 14 and 18 gallon.


you can tell there is a 6" difference between the 2 rubbermaids.
you put the smaller one inside the larger one.
the lager one is the bottom...which the 6" of water and your submersible aquarium heater goes into.

this set up has one draw back...you get less jars inside.
but I have many of these incubators...in the fold.
