    I'm using my two Brinseas but since have different ages using this Janoel-12 for lockdown high humidity days. Its very hard to tell humidity levels and hydrometer ordered hasn't arrived yet (in the mail) Does anyone have hydrometer readings for it vs various water amounts?

    Since you are in lockdown, steamy but not dripping is a good indicator of adequate humidity.
