Unexpected humidity drop!!! Help!!
    #608453 - 04/15/02 06:05 AM (20 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, my friend has a 36 gallon sterlite container, a vick's coolmist humidifer is running into it via plastic tubing. It's on a 2 hour on 2 off cycle and was working great!! Over the course of the last week it has gone from 85 down to 65 and won't go up even on a 3 on 1 off cycle, any ideas as to why this might have occured and what i can do to remedy the problem??? Thanks in advance!!!

Add some damp perlite to the bottom of the terranium that should raise humidity.

dood I had the same problem with my cool mist.... After we had it for about 3 weeks it pooped out on us. We think it was cuz we didn't clean it but the pickup tube wasn't clogged. We also saw like an inch of water on top of the motor housing--if you took the filter off the back and stuck your hand down there that's where there was water. Well it was making a really loud noise too. We cleaned it, dried it and tried it again.. still couldn't get the humidity up past 60%... Still making that loud noise.

We bought a new one. Couldn't get it past 70% running 24/7 so we added some perlite and ran it 1 hr. on and 2 hr. off for now.

Till we figure something out...

definatly, you likely had a 90degree angle coming out of your humidifier eh?
what you need is like a trap (like under your kitchen/bathroom sink) Or need to have it on more of a downward angle, sounds to me like the water is condensing on the sidesmof the tube (verticle tube) and coming back into the humidifier

yeah we did have a 90 degree angle coming off our old one... Our new one has a hose barb coming out of it...

With the old one we did notice water starting to gurgle down by the connector and we would tilt the hose to let the water fall back down into the humidifier....Is that bad on the humidifier???

And if you had a trap in the hose... wouldn't the water build up quickly and block the air flow?

We do have the hose running vertically up to our terraruim.
