    Is there a formula to work out the surface area of water needed to humidify a specific cubic area in volume at "usual" bator temperatures?

    this would allow accurate humidity adjustment to be made.

    OR is it easier just to add a bit more til' its right? [​IMG]

    It would be hard to make a formula because size, temp, surface area, number of eggs, outside temp, outside humidity, air exchange rate an fan CFMs would all have an effect. Just to many variables.
