TiT...
    #4532264 - 08/14/05 02:55 AM (11 years, 3 months ago)

When using the TiT, what should I put in the bottom tote to keep it from forming mold/bacteria growth/algae??

I'm thinking h2o2, or 91% rubbing alcohol...

Which one would work best?

Roadkill pointed me in the right direction to build my first TiT!

Water with a bit of bleach added works great.

How much h2o2 for 6 inches of water in a 15 gallon tote?

Like a full bottle?

Or probably 1/4 to 1/2 cup bleach?

Bleach is some NASTY! strong ass shit... it kills AIDS on contact, even when it is diluted to somewhere around a 20:1 ratio. Use your best judgement!

So definately 1/4 cup or less?

My best judgement may not be the best for my grow, that's why I'm asking.

The water in the bottom of your TiT should never come into contact with any part of your grow, and thus should not affect it in any way... As far as mold/bacteria/algae growth go, use a 1/20 bleach/water. H2o2 works great too... but if I am not mistaken, it breaks down rather quickly(that is why you see the bubbles/foam). 6" of water in the bottom tub seems like a bit to much to me. Try around 3" or so... just enough to float the top tub and maintain a constant 82-86 degrees F.


Best of luck!

a small bottle or h2o2...

or an 1/8 to 1/4 of a cup of bleach.

and you will want to clean out your incubator from time to time to cut down on contams.
