Testing the humidistat

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Weeks ago there were directions on how to test to see if the humidstat was registering correctly with uniodized salt in a plastic bag.  I am going to be starting up my bators again and want to do this.  What is the link on BYC that I saw that?

Here is a  how to calibrate
you can put the hygrometer in a sealed ziplock bag along with an open container of wet salt (consistency of wet sand, they say). After 6 hours, the humidity should read 75%. Again, adjust accordingly.
or you can do a search on BYC site to seee other ways.

Here is the most detailed explanation of calibrating a hygrometer that I've found:  http://ezinearticles.com/?Prevent-Mold!-Hygrometer-Calibration&id=602308

don't use all of the salts.  Just plain old sodium chloride (table salt) since it's good enough for egg incubation.
