Playing With This Idea: Replace Those Humidifiers With Water Fall !!!
This new idea is to replace the mist maker with a water fall concept.
While in Kemaman, Trengganu, about one month back I was met by a newbie who happened to be active in running a machine shop.
His machine shop was below his BH.
Among the many BHs in Kemaman he confirmed with me that there was one unit that was owned by a very successful BH owner.
This special owner have something special installed in his BH.
He has this waterfall system that act not only as a humidfier but also a cooler and water falling sound generator.
Swiftlet seems to like the water falling sound and some even built their nest on the waterfall plates.
I have not seen one but after interrogating what he saw I came out with my own waterfall design system.
I might not be a great waterfall design guy but you have a look and try to erect your own unit.
The idea is to pump the cold water into a 4 inch pipe and allow is to fall onto a metal plate (aluminum).
Once the water falls onto the plate it will make it way to the bottom via gravity.
Break the journey now by having another plate tilted at a steeper angle.
At the break area install a fan to blow air onto the falling water.
The air should be coming from the ventilation hole of your BH.
The moist air will be pushed into your nesting room and will make the humidity higher.
Once the water falls into a collecting bin you can pump the water up to the pipe for circulation.
Have a look at the sketch for some idea about replacing your mist maker with waterfall system.
