    I had to cover 90% of the water trough in my hova 1588 to get it to hold 44%. I looked last night and the water is now gone and it was 43% and this morning still 43%. I dont know if i should just leave it or put more water in it at this point. Thanks

    I'd leave as it is and just keep a check each day as to when to add more...you only want it between 40 to 50% range the first 18 days anyway....
