Salt for contam control in TIT
    #4394122 - 07/12/05 12:21 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

With a tub in tub setup, can you just use salt in the bottom tub where the fish tank heater is located to stop bacteria growing in there.

And what about adding salt to the perlite? because the salt wont get into the cakes will it?

I'm only a shroom beginner but I know that adding salt to growing substrates(plants, shrooms, or anything)is really ,really bad for growth of anything.

Put a little bit of bleach in your water that is in the bottom tub.

This will keep any bacteria from growing.

The main idea is just to dump a shit load of salt in the bottom tub, so this water never comes into contact with the actuall cakes or casings... not even close to it.

Just an idea to keep things more organic :p

Good idea, bleach smells and degrades over time. I wonder if the salty water would get that same slimey feel to it over time.

I have thought of using salt myself once I get my TiT goin, it has to be the best possible thing to use cuz I hear of ppl getting contaminated water even from using bleach and/or alcohol.

^^

Let's find out.

I'll leave some water out in the sickest place...

Probably outside where bacteria festers (trich. everywhere)

I'll put in a small amount of salt and see what happens.

Salt doesn't degrade quickly as far as I can tell.

Leave a tall glass of slat water out....and damn...it'll be like that for quite awhile lol

Just hearsy.

Noobs probably :lol:

Probably fucked up else where.

Bleach kills basically Everything...Alcohol...same way...But they do both slowly degrade after time and exposure to air/evaporation...

People use chlorine in pools to kill bacteria, but hasnt anyone heard of the alternative? salt pools?

Havnt you ever been in a pool that uses salt to regulate the bacteria instead of chlorine, so its already been proven i guess.
