Major Hygrometer troubles
    #423037 - 10/12/01 09:49 AM (22 years, 4 months ago)

My digital hygrometer can't stay in my terrarium at 95%-100% for a day or so without fritzing out.

I have to take the battery out and let it sit awhile before its back to normal.

Am I supposed to do this in my daily routine?

Could I fix this with alittle duct tape on the cracks of the battery door?

please help me out, I am at my wits end.

I would suggest drying the electronics out thuroughly, then sealing them.. go to radio shack, they should have what you need.. if you cannot find normal circuit board sealer, you could use silicone (aquarium silicone... not the stuff that does not dry).. just a thin contiguous layer over all the electronics.. of course do not seal the probe, or your hygro will be worthless..

ok, is it easy enough to take that stuff off to change a battery once it runs down?

also, any idea how much it'll cost me?

so just run that sealer all around the cracks and creveses?

thanks

Super Blue sealer is like $5 for a good sized tube, way more than what you need. peels off very easily and clean as do all silicone based sealers.

The fucking thing *won't* dry out.

It just stayed blank this time... It won't come back to life.

I hope it drys off soon... I don't like not knowing whats going on in my terrerium.

i'd say throw the thing away.

My one gave me nothing but trouble, saying it was about 60% when it was probably nearer 200 ;) then recalibrated said never below 90 when it was probaly about 50.

Just experiment till you find what will work. But that is jstu me...

I assume you meant 100... :-)

Also, did you have a digital one? I think I may have spoke too soon, after unscrewing it all and taking it apart and having it sit for a bit... Its all dry. Right now it has duct tape on all the cracks, but I'm going to buy silicone this afternoon.
