Ohh and microbe.. you stated a few small holes for tubing in the no hole mono. Air pump , could you explain just curious if your doing this totally no air exchange or just a different route, thanks
I ask just because ive gone the pump route with an exchanged filter with good success. This was in a shotgun that were stacked so I was trying to find a way to not lift everything when giving air, turns out if I plugged up most of the holes with hit glue except the front and had the tubes ran into the back it worked great after a bit of tweaking. This was Pans so there was def enough air exchange.
I actually ran one tube into my mono from the top also.. it did have poly holes but I never fanned the tub except the couple times I mist the substrate. Never had a fan , just ran it on a timer but I didnt want to dry things out so I removed the tube most of the time.
Sorry i wasnt clear when i said no hole mono. Im still going to provide FAE but im going to use it via airpump with no holes in the tubs other then the 2 for the airlines pumping in fresh dry (normal room RH) air. The stale humid air will be pushed out through the top through due to the pressure increase. Im seeing which gives be better results. As long as im cycling the air complelty once an hour, timer 15 minutes on and 45 off, i should still get good evaporation and a good pin set. The only difference is im relying on the sub entirely to provide optimal rh. I would rather use a spray bottle a few times a day if needed then to have to clean ultrasonic humidifiers like i used to.
I dont filter my air and i did some math to calculate in minutes i would need to run the pump based on its output. I add a few minutes to compensate for bottlenecking, pressure drop and shit like or estimated i should say.
All the tubes will be the same length so that the air will have to travel the same distance from the pump to the tub or bag. In addition i can control airflow for all 32 lines that are hooked into lever operated gang valves.
Once i get it set up i will share it.
