TiT water
    #4201559 - 05/21/05 12:12 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

When i first built my TiT I put bleach and some alcohol in the water to see if i could keep stuff from growing in it.

Its not working.

What can i put in the TiT to keep stuff from growing in the water?

a drop of bleach shoul be more than sufficient to keep any/everything from growing in your incubator's water reservoir.
change the water, clean it, and put a cap of bleach in your fresh water.
then change the water every couple of months.

OR,

You could put a small ten dollar submersible water pump at the bottom of the tub. This keeps the water moving. Contaminates won't harbor in moving water.

OR

Do both. I have a pump and bleach, never any issues. When I top up the water I will add more bleach. I like to change the water every so often also, I would say every 2 months.

actually, I do both too.

I also thought the bleach would be enough, but I had a pump anyway.
