How the HR-50 Humidifier Works
All plants need water, indeed most plants are composed mostly of water. For this reason, the health of a plant will depend directly on the relative humidity of its surroundings. Leaves lose water via evaporation through their stomata – small openings in special cells on the leaf surface where gaseous exchange takes place. If the relative humidity is too low, a plant will start to give up some of its water into the surrounding air, which can have a very negative effect on plants, typically causing wilting, stress and poor health. Boosting levels of moisture can improve plant transpiration, nutrient uptake, cell division and fruit/bud development.
The HR-50 connects to a tank, which supplies water to the unit. It works via a float switch system, so that water is only ever sent to the unit when it is needed - it will never overflow. No pump is required, as it's a gravity fed system. The HR-50 can then be plugged into a hygrostat, if you have chosen to buy one with it. The hygrostat then plugs into the wall. The hygrostat will then regulate the HR-50 so that it only ever introduces moisture into the air when it needs to.
The HR-50 is designed for use with water that has been filtered through a reverse osmosis unit. Filtering water removes excess salts that can damage internal components and cause issues in your growroom. These salts can even corrode your reflectors, causing a drop in yields. If you wish to use this unit with unfiltered water, you do so at your own risk. We cannot except returns and the manufacturers will not send out a replacement.
