Air exchange...
    #4690967 - 09/21/05 06:13 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well i was reading allot on this subject after my first good pinning set wasn't developing right, so i found out i didn't have enough air exchange in the growing chamber.
I'm using a Ultrasonic humidifier for moisture although i thought that it would give the need air exchange. I couldn't find anything that looks like the cool mist you all use (i don't live in the us or Europe). So i took a computer fan covered it with a good filter so it would sit on top of the chamber and give a clean flow of air inside, also i used a lower voltage on the fan so it wouldn't run too fast. it seems to be doing very well, but i suspect that i should give more humidity ??? I don't want to over water them too.
If you can help me and tell me what "cool Mist" is for maybe i could find something that does the same work.
thanks.

Yes cool mist is well known... I even heard of people overseas paying americans double price AND shipping just to get them one mailed to them.... because overseas they are not available and other misters are way too expensive!

A coolmist will have a spinning disc inside of it. The disc should look similar to this:

Thanks for the help but whats the regular daily use of Cool Mist, is it just for cooling spaces or its supposed to be adding humidity to the room air ???

It's to add humidity to the air. I use it when my nose is stuffy :smile:

Cool mist 24/7 for constant fresh air exchange. The ultrasonic is kind of trial and error. It depends on the humidity where you are. You may need to play with the timing on it until you get it where you want it. Some people can get by with just a coolmist and maintain good humidity.

The coolmist will maintain the humidity or is there something else that needs to be done? Someone needs to make a tek about this.

hose it in, it gives a humidified air exchange. you may still need to mist if it doesnt keep it high enough though.

You could also run a few fish tank bubblers...
Take two or three fish tank pumps. Attach an air stone to the end of the tubing and place that in a cup filled with a H2O2 solution. If you run two or three oof those suckers you should get all the FAE you need.
You could also check out the double tub tek. Holes stuffed with polyfil provide all the FAE needed.

As was said coolmist adds moist fresh air exchanges.
