    how do I change the water bottle. Do you have to wait until it is empty or can you take it off and add more water now? Had a problem in the test mode where too much humidity was introduced. Do you screw the ring tight to the base of the bottle again? Thanks

    it depends on what day you are on. on mine whenever it got just about empty I would add more to it. when it got close to hatch day when you unscrew it to up the humidity I would leave it where I had it and refill. if you need more humidity all you do is unscrew it a little more. if less is needed then screw the nut down.
