I bought a digital thermometer/hygrometer and tried to "calibrate" the hygrometer part yesterday. I put it into a ziplock baggie with non-iodized salt that had water added to it until it was the consistency of wet sand with no pooling of water in it. I let it set from 4:00 p.mp yesterday to 9:00 a.m. this morning. The the temps in the house stayed between 65 an 71 degrees. It only got up to 63% on the hygrometer. I now also know that the thermometer that came with the incubator if off by 2.5 degrees. It reads higher than it it is. I used 4 different thermometers last night and this morning and believed the temp part of my new toy is working. All the thermometers were either the same or within a 1/2 of degree of each other. As soon as I put the T/H in the incubator this morning the hygrometer part said it was 57% humidity. It has been in there 45 minutes and temp is only reading at 94.7. Yet the other thermometer is reading at 99. I am so frustrated, Should I believe the new toy or get another one. Why did the hygrometer part only get to 63% over 17 hrs? T/H is from a incubator supply store. I am now a little frustrated! Anyone have any thought, hints, tips or advice?
