    Too high or to loo luke. Mine quite often sits above the recommended 45% if the outside humidity is high. At moment our outside humidity is 89% yuck..

    Thats about normal Luke when your outside humidity is too high. It wont be a problem and should adjust by itself over a few days. I leave my pump on Luke. It won't use the water unless it needs it. Most of the time my pump will only go off during hatch.

    Oh sweet, thanks!
    So best to put the pump back on then haha, will do.
    Oh, I never knew that about the pump, I was reading the little setup manual and it said you should turn the pump to the lowest setting which it said it did a pump every 5 seconds but mine barley goes. Maybe once every like 5 mins.

    Yes you have the king suro rcom don't you? Mine doesn't go off at all if the humidity is too high. You can take it off if you are worried. Wont matter either way.
