hydrometer
    #655509 - 05/31/02 09:37 AM (21 years, 8 months ago)

I bought a cheap ($5) thermometer with a buitlt in hydrometer at wal-mart and was wondering if it should be good enough to mesure my humitity? Did anyone else go the cheap route with hydometers and how did they work?

From my experience and from reading others experience with these cheap coil thermometers/hygrometers, they are not accurate at all. Especially the hygrometer part. They seem to never want to read high humidities at all. They usually will stick around 85% or so. But maybe you got a good one. I'd get a good digital one or one with a calibration screw.

I would reccomend getting a digital hydrometer bcasue I think it was worth the $30. Its fairly accruate. Ive bought actually 3 different analog ones which didnt ever go above 70%!

Do you mean hygrometer? Because a hydrometer is to measure the density of a liquid, be it the sugar or salt content.

I did. If it reads at 85%, its prolly 100%
Good way to tell, if the walls of the tank are foggy, and have a few drips, its where it needs to be.
