    Humidity has ran 66-67% since i upped it on day 18 until. A few hours ago it went down to 63% and has not came back up. I have a 1588 and both the center channels are full. Should i add a little to one of the remaining ones through the vent hole or just let it go with the 63%? Thanks

    It should be ok. If u need to add water just pull the red plug and go straight down with a straw is the way i do. I do use a syringe though. [​IMG]

    You can also take the red plug out and stuff some wet paper towel or cloth down into that hole. Then you can keep it wet by dripping water onto it periodically.
