    A small, but good humidifier?

    Can anyone recommend a small but effective humidifier (Non ultrasonic) that I can use in my growchamber? I have a Hunter cool air humidifier but it is not very effective and I want to get my humidity up. I want something that I can use tap water in, hence, the non-ultrasonic.

    Thanks.

    ive always been curious about using ro water in a standard fog machine(at halloween, party stores carry them for like $20). i think i saw on these boards someone who had used one of these foggers for their greenhouse, but i know that what you put in is what you get out, so tap water probably shouldnt be used...

    Well, I know that Ultra sonic can leave mineral deposits on everything if tap water is used, which is why I want something non-ultrasonic.

    i dont think the fog machines are ultrasonic since they have to heat up before fogging. i cant seem to find anything that specifies the "technology" of fog machines.

    it really depends on how big the container holding water is. if the holding container is relatively small, it doesnt take that much to operate the ultrasonic humidifier---the manual says it can work even up to 4 inches of water. initially you will need a good amount of distilled water since the humidifier wont operate until the water indicator is submerged. even so, i put about a gallon of distilled water into the tank once every 1.5-2 weeks (this is for a 20 gallon long).

    Ummm......my chamber is about 7ft by 4ft and 4ft high.


    I would need to use a small fishtank as a water tank.
