Be Careful When Using Any Humidity Control Equipment !!!

We know by now that if you have problems with your BH humidity you can use many methods in raising them to the required level.

Normally you will require to shut as many ventilation holes as possible and install those water spraying equipments that suits your budget.

There are a few types that I have covered in my blog.

You have the mist spray system controlled by specialise timers or Hygrostats.

You might want to use those noisy chicken coop humidifiers that shot those water particles towards your ceiling.

You can have a kind of water dripping onto those walls and drain them out using gutters.

You can place water containers all over the room (Already banned in Perak due to possibility of breeding mosquitos).

The latest is to using soundless mist generating humidifiers.

All that I mentioned above are available and each of them do have their pros and cons.

One of the biggest issue will be the tendency of flooding the BH floor.

If you connect those water hoses wrongly or loosely there will be a big chances that the clip will get loose and the hose will be disconnected especially when the water pressure from the water source is way to high.

The best is to ensure that these clips are properly secured and the water pressure such that it will not burst the connection.

Those who uses the chicken coop and also the soundless humidifiers will face this type of problem.

To those who uses those water spray system there is also a strong chances that the timer you set are too much and with that your BH floor will be too wet.

This type of problem can be resolved if you make every effort to reset the timing lower then the initial setting.

I was at a BH in Gaya Industrial Park the other day. The moment we reached the staircase there were water flowing down. We know something is not right up there. The owner quickly reset the timer to reduce the time of spraying.

Using controller system (Hygrostat or HygroTemp), if you are not careful, can cause the same thing.

These tools are generally dependent on the air around their sensor. As long as these sensors sense that the air is not within the set ranges it will continue to allow electrical current to flow.

Just imagine if you do not shut those ventilation holes on the walls and your evening sun facing walls are generating high temperature all evening?

This will causes flooding if you are not careful.

Please take note on the above reminder and it they happen please do not blame those soulless equipment.

They are as good as how good you understand how to use them.

(Hi Harry,
Thanks to your infor sharing...

I do felt that the soundless humidifiers has its hidden risk to the BH. I myself has experience on it.

1. the inlet piping valve can easily loose-off if water pressure is high-3 bar or more.( using water source direct from tangki somehow the water just cant automaticaly refilling)

2.If water pressure is low, the refilling process is slow and sometime cause the overflow valve malfunction... so water leakage cause flooding in BH.

3. the original power supply wire is not very long thus most of us would extend it to suit our BH nearest power point. pls make sure the reconection point is place above floor lever b'coz it is very dangerous when ur BH is flooding and current is yet to supply due to timmer still in off position.

Above is my experience while trying the soundless humidifier pls consider it as Things to check especially its concern to our safety.
