I was having a similar problem with humidity running high in my Aristocrat. I called Bob and he said that often happens on the coast where it's not uncommon for humidity to be around 70%. The water reservoir allows too much water into the air so on his suggestion I closed off 90% of the slots and then for good measure I put some 65% beads in to absorb any excess moisture. I set the humidifier to kick in when the RH dips to 62% and now it holds a steady 64-65% RH....2. CANNOT KEEP THE RH at 65% -The beads in the cabinet are maybe 50% clear. Why am I still getting a higher than 65% RH? I have three hydro in the cabinet and they've been all calibrated recently, so don't think this is a inaccurate RH reading. They read anywhere from 67 to 71%.... Any comments?
