Reptipro 5000 Hatch-A-Long (= - Page 29

Can some one explain dry incubating? I know it should be self explantory, but curious. I just received my reptpro 6000 and set eggs today. Appears to be insufficient on water storage for humidity control. Thanks

I put the eggs in the incubator with no water. On your humidity make sure it doesn't go under 25 percent. If it does put a bottle cap with water in it.  On day 18 bump your humidity up to 65 or 70 percent. That's how I did it and had success. I

I think we have worked out any and all kinks with this new unit and it will work like a dream. I am so excited about this new unit as we have listened to our customers and have made the appropriate changes to address their concerns. The new unit has a much better finish and that fan in the back is recessed. Also the power converter that is on the power cord is now built in to the back of the unit. The shelves are now a nice crystal clear plastic and there have been some design changes to make it look much nicer. The electronic controls and components inside are all redesigned as well and we should see much better life out of these.

 

Here is a couple pics

Our units say they have a 30 day warranty on them as we had a ton of scammers who would use the units for one hatch and then return them saying they were broken. Upon receiving some of these type of returns we tested them and found them to be fine. Also had one guy who used it and then clipped a wire in the back and covered the ends with electrical tape. As if we would not take a peek to diagnose the issue.

 

If anyone ever has a problem with our units please just call or email us and we will fix or replace the unit free of charge. One month or even one year later. We are trying our best to be a wonderful company who treats people how we would like to be treated. If you email and don't get a response please call us at 1-800-259-9755 m-f 9-5 EST. If it is after that time then just leave a message and I will call you back personally.

 

I don't have as much time as I would like to keep up with posts here on BYC so if you see someone else who has an issue please pass along the message that we are here to help and that they should just give us a call.

I am hand turning in mine...the turners are very pricey, as well as cut down on the number of eggs the unit will hold.  Because I hand turn, I was curious as to how the unit's temp would re-bound and I'm very suprised.  It re-bounds and stabilizes very quickly!  This is only day 3 and I'm chomping at the bit to candle them barnie.gif
