    Is there a slick way to add water to the 1588 humidity tray? Fanning the lid does not seem too cool. TIA, Jon

    I have the same bator and I have learned from this forum to run the clear air line tubing that one uses for aquariums through the same notch that you have the turner wire come through. Then to add water to the troughs, use a large syringe with the needle removed to "inject" water through the tubes.
    I set mine up yesterday, it being the 18th day, I took out the turner and ran the tubing, under the wire mesh, to two of the water wells then out that notch. This way I can add water without lifting the lid during the last days of incubation.
    Hope I explained this well,
    others may run the tubing in through the vent holes in the bottom of the bator.
    See what works best for you,

    you can also run it through the top air hole and into the trough.

    You can also get the small, clear tubing in the plumbing section of the hardware store. . .
