Default Really easy ultrasonic humidifier journal

Humidifier needs to be ultrasonic cool mist with a 2 or 2 1/2 inch output hole

Click the image to open in full size.

Bring the humidifier to your local small hardware store and tell them what you're trying to do, those guys will usually get really excited to figure out how to reduce the hole to the size tubing you're using - you can also get the tubing from them to make sure all the stuff you get from them works. This is for 1/2" inside and 5/8" outside diameter tubing

Clean and silicone together any parts that need it, let cure till there's no smell

Testing out the fitting

Attach tubing

Click the image to open in full size.

Connect tubing to outlet into the tank any way that's safe for the frogs, I'm just using a screen top here so I electrical taped the tubing so that it just aims down at the screen - just turned on you can see the mist running down the background and wood and gathering at the bottom

Click the image to open in full size.

After 2 minutes humidity is at 100%, either manually turn it off and on when you want or connect the plug to a timer - if you use a timer make sure to get one that has a minimum ON time of a minute (lots of timers can be on a minimum of 1/2 hour and that's way too long

Does it have variable fog settings? Is that what the O I II and III things are? im looking for a low fog output for almost all day use. I might have it on 12 hours a day or something like that, because a lot of the misters say something about hours of use per day, Maybe it gets to hot, and the disc needs to cool down? Anyways i looked on ebay, does that have variable settings, i hate how you cant ever get a good explanation of products online, or in the store.

If at all possible and when you have time, and you take a picture of how much the fog fills the viv after a minute or two on that setting? Im trying to get mine to be set up to fog under a waterfall so it looks like its a vigorous fall. So i would LOVE little fog, all the time, or at least when viewing.

THanks, aaron

Well i just bought the same one on ebay, so we'll see how it goes.

I used to use a simular method for my chineese water dragon a bit more "ghetto" tho I guess you would say. Instead of pvc connectors I used a fish tank gravel cleaner. Fit pretty well. Mind you this was 8 years ago I used a Sunbeam humidifier and it only had 1 setting. The newer ones have alot more options. However, I just pulled 1 of the 2 Sunbeams out of storage that I used to use and it still works! I'm using it atm for my plants at work.

Didn't try it on any more tanks yet but others on here did with success, do a search for ultrasonic humidifier and you'll see some going to more than 1 tank with more complicated pvc piping

Yeah there's off, low and high, that pic actually is on the low setting after 2 minutes, totally fills up the tank (I keep it on for 4 minutes to get the tank really wet since I use the screen top), I don't think you can use any of these for 12 hours unless it's HUGE tank with tons of airflow and a fan lol, this model is actually really small too, about half the size of a normal one, like 9.5" long and 8.5" high, can't see that by the pics on ebay, works really well so far though

cool, yeah, im going to send them a MO tomorrow, and we'll see how it turns out, that kinda sucks that its the low setting you had it on and it filled in under 5 minutes.* TOTALLY not what im looking for, but will def. come in handy for at least keeping the humidity up, and will be well worth it.* I guess i can figure out some way to maybe restrict the flow enough to keep it going all day or at least 12 or 16 hours a day.* Looks nice how you have it set up, and when i get it will follow yours to a T.* Thanks

Dragas has a good idea here.

I have that same humidifier and if the tube going to the tank is set up just right any water that doesn't make it out the tube into the tank drains back down the tube into the the humidifier to be re-vaporized...so in theory the ball valve would only let a small amount of fog through and the rest of the water would be recycled.

Only thing I wonder about is the life expectancy of the humidifier if it is run constanly. I've heard from several people that this is the downfall of these humidifiers. Mine is only run for a few minutes a day so we'll see.

Yeah make sure there's no dips in the hose (anything shaped like a "U"), I attached the hose and before I aimed it into the tank I let it run with the hose curled up on the floor, the lowest part of the hose filled up with water like a straw and totally blocked the mist, if the hose is only going up then it drips back down into the humidifier, I guess if it was higher than the tank and going down into it then it would drip into the tank

Heyas,

Dredging this post up to show how I used Chris' idea to mist my new Dracula polyphemus Angel from an online orchid shop.

Click the image to open in full size.

My one question to Chris or anyone who's done this, what happens when the condensation runs down the hose back into the fogger? Does it get re-misted or does it drip out?

I'm just wondering if I need to throw the humidifier in a bucket.

Are these Humidifers still called "Kaz" or are they Envirocare now?

I used to see them in big box stores ect ....but have not seen them lately.

They seem the best and easiest to be convert for our purposes.

I also have a similar setup with them same humidifier. It's been running for almost a year and is still running strong! I think it is very good for the price.

Yeah, the guy from the orchid shop said to use a humidifier on it if I had low humidity (which I do during the late fall, winter, early spring. I turned the nozzle around so it faces away from the wall (don't want to get the drywall overhumid).

I'm thinking it's going to work out with daily dunkings in water.

No it just seems to drip back down into the humidifier because the tubing fits so tightly on the fitting

Can the Humidifier be placed on a rack ABOVE the viv with the hose going down into it ?

Then you wouldn't have to worry about the return drip....

Just a little info on the Kaz brand. Kaz appears to be the parent company of the brands Honeywell, BrAun and a few others. And partners with Vicks, whichs is a Procter and Gamble company.


I tried to see if I could find a product page for this model but the Kaz website is useless to say the least.



Does anyone have a model number for this unit?

Kaz Personal Mist Ultrasonic Blue Humidifier 5520B

Is what I'm using now and it works (pretty sure it's the one ChrisK was using too).

If anyone has a Kaz unit that has a bigger resevoir, let me know please.

-Nish

BTW. A very nice lady at Home Depot showed me two pieces sold there that worked extremely well (looked just like ChrisK's) but the barb for the 1/2" tubing threaded right into it with no need for silicone. Look out for them.

It depends on your humidity and goals, but I still mist by hand a couple of times a week to clean off and water the broms

What dept/area does HD usually keep these in? I couldn't find any at my local HD, nor did most of the employees even know what I was talking about (although that's not uncommon...).

I'd rather try to pick one up local before I order off the net.

I found one on Ebay and grabbed it with little problem. I don't think you're going to have an easy time finding these at a local store. I'm not sure if they're discontinued or if they're just something that isn't carried at most stores. Seems like these things are all rebranded from time to time and whatever seems to be the new style (with newish features) will be at the home depot.

The Kaz humidifier is very simple but it's also simply all you need for what Chris has shown that you can do with it. I'd just order it off of Ebay from someone who has a high positive rating or grab them from one of the two guys selling them on Amazon.com. (slightly cheaper on Ebay but check on the shipping).

I always get a rubber stopper which will fit the hole, get tubing and a drill bit with the same outer diameter, and just drill a hole in the stopper and plug it in.. has worked for a year and a half without fail.. fills the tank with a thick fog.

Again, at home depot I was able to get the exact two parts that Chris has -except- the one part fit exactly into the hole with no leakage whatsoever and the hose barb screwed directly (tightly) into the threading in the piece. These two pieces sit in the hole (mild pressure makes it fit without moving) so that I have to do nothing else. It might help to have the tubing coming from the top directly down from the top to the unit (a little added pressure with no force to either side).

Look for these pieces at Home Depot. They're there.

I bought a couple off eBay for @ $30.00 each, with shipping included.

They are probably discontinued in stores, so grab them while you can.

They are excellent for our purposes. The bushing / nozzel is $2.39 and fits tight without ANY silicone or adjusting. Aquarium tubing is also easy to obtain.

I use black tubing to discourage mold build up.

One Kaz personal Humidifer can easily service TWO large vivs.

I would use it sparingly to avoid wear down...only to "perk up" your breeding or to give your plants a little treat. Def not a full time / always on type of thing.

Good hobby-engineered product..... four stars!

I see them every once in a while in stores like Good Will and the Salvation Army for $15 -$20.

I think that's were I got mine.

I just made one of these, with the exact humidifier shown. I had to use like 4 different pvc reducing bushings to get it down to a 1/2" barb. With all the connections it's sitting 6 inches out of the humidifier before it hits the 1/2" tube. I think with all the stair stepping with the threads I am losing out on a lot of the fog. I only have a 29 gallon, and in 5 minutes it just seems to sit around half way up the tank. I'd like to get it filled!

So my question is what exact pvc part are you guys using for the single pvc to 1/2" barb? I didn't see anything at my local HD or Menards that fit as nicely as it does for Chris. Maybe I can order it or something. For some reason it seems my local hardware stores never carry all the cool stuff that yall can get.

At any rate I was happy to see it work when I first set it up. This thing is awesome! Thanks for the journal!

Thank You,
