As plants transpire, they lose water through their stomata (small openings on leaf surfaces). If the moisture levels in the surrounding atmosphere are too low, then the volume of water released by plants through their stomata will be higher, which can have very negative impact (wilting, stress and poor health). Boosting the level of moisture in the atmosphere, when necessary, will have a huge impact on plant growth and vitality.
The HR-15 is a fully automated solution that takes water from a separate source (using a float switch system) and distributes it into the air as and when required, based on readings taken by its sensing equipment.
The HR-15 connects to a separate header 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-15 then plugs into the separate hygrostat and the hygrostat plugs into the wall. The hygrostat regulates the HR-15 so that it only ever introduces moisture into the air when it needs to.
It should be noted that the HR-15 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.
