Hygrometers from Wal-Mart

    So, I've now salt-tested 4 Hygometers, all from Wal-Mart. Three of them were Accurites, and not one of them registered more than 62-64% humidity, when the test should have resulted in a reading of 75.

    The Springfield-Taylor, however, got right up to 73%, which is close enough that I can adjust for the difference.

    All the 3 Accurites are going back tomorrow....

    YMMV.

    Susan, When I tested the accurite it took 24 hours to get to the 75% Don't know why but it left me unsure like you.
