    Adding water will most definitely drop your temp some. I am curious how cold the water was because that is a big dip. If it were me, yes I would try to drain all of the water first, get your temp back up, and then slowly add water until you get your humidity back up to where it was.

    What kind of bator is it?

    It is low by built in thermometer or do you have a second that you are confirming it with? What is the temp in the room that the Bator is in?
