Gadget Hunting, Part2.

Aug 30, 2010.

I got both items from my friend who travelled back from Korea and China.
The thermo- hygrostat is very light and compact. It's functions do serve the purposes of bird house very well and the unit is very easy to operate. My friend also bought one to try on his mushroom culture. It works well too.

For the transducer, it also worked quite well.
It weighed around 7 kg, a heavy duty one!
In fact the transducer isn't that heavy but the transformer that come with it is real heavy.
Many thanks to my friend, SK, who helped hand carry it all the way back from China.

According to the manual, we need to keep the water level 60-80 mm. above the transducer all the time.
So my hubby made me a floater by using a piece of foam and 6 table tennis balls.


With the floater, we can place it in a tall tank without losing any mist producing efficiency.
Walla, it works very well and produce a lot of mist. You can see that the mist is very thick but it sit still covering up the transducer.



Thus I put a fan beside this tank, the mist then came out continuously. See it in action!
It works very quiet too. We can only hear the sound of the water, no electrical motor humming sound.
The manufacture claimed that this unit also produce negative ions that can freshen the air.
I hope birds will likes this refreshen mist and air.

Next step is to fabricated into a close container with water level switch, a fan, and a PVC tube to release the mist into the bird house.


  1. Can't wait to see it in action once you have connected this to the pvc tube.

    Just out of curiosity, what is your background?

  2. See it in

    I was a scientist, chemist, retired already.
