how do I fix this
    #606906 - 04/13/02 01:37 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

My neighbor has this terrarium hooked up to an ultra sonic and the humidity builds to 95% and won't go any lower even if the valves and exhaust are open. Please help.

get a digital timer at Walmart for about $13 that turns the power on and off (my brother uses one as an alarm clock and his it turn his lights on).. I think they have something like 6 settings to turn on and can be set for how long you want it on.. so you could have it on for 1 hour then off for an hour, then one for 1 hour, then off.. or however long.. 24/6=4 hours, so maybe run an hour on and 3 hours off 6 times a day and modify as needed.. Walmart also has cheap digital and analog hygrometers ($3 for analog I think and about $15 for digital).. I assume you are measuring humidity with something like that.. the inexpensive ones I've seen though don't measure as accurately above something like 80% humidity so error could fall between 90-97% humidity.. but the more accurate ones (meteorological rather than umm.. horticultural...ones I've been made by Oregon Scientific) are quite a bit more expensive

yeah, the digital ones are pretty cool but i found that none of them had enough settings for me, if i left that ulra-sonic on the lowest settings for an hour i would have WAYYY too much humidity. the chaining lets you specify pretty well, although i was always paraniod it was going to mess up, just leave it alone and reset it like every week
