Coolmist humidifier on/off cycle??
    #566086 - 02/28/02 05:09 PM (21 years, 11 months ago)

If u were using a coolmist humidifer to pump air into a 36 gallon terrarium. Could u run it 24/7 or should it be on an on/off cycle. My friend wanted to run it 1 hour on and 5 off because it still stays humid even if it's off for 5 hours. The only problem is, is 4 1 hour periods of coolmist a day enough air exchange, I would think so since they recommend fanniing for 4 15 minute periods a day. Anybody got any tips or answers??

Just run it as much as you need it. If the rH stays at a good level for you, you dont need it on all the time. It will be enough air exchange for each day too. Fanning will not be needed.

I have no esperience with coolmist but from my understanding they can be left on 24hours a day. it the ultrasonics that you want on a timer, i hear they can over humidify. i only use perlite but i am going to look in to a coolmist humidifier, perlite is too messy.

my friend had a 73qt tub w/ cool mist and he used a 30 min on every six hours.
every thing went well with perfect fruits. but even with this short of times the air does evaporate quite a bit off the casing
now he has a timer with 14 on and offs and is excited to try that
hope that helps PJ
