There are a few options for keeping water temps lower.

  1. Remove the back lower right door and allow a fan to blow directly at the opening. This is in the hope that your ambient temp sits around 70F. If you live somewhere like me (AZ) this isn’t affordable during the summers, or any time other than winter for that matter :rofl:.
  2. Frozen water bottles. This is a ginormous PITA since they have to constantly be rotated, however it’s cheap and easy.
  3. Install a chiller. This is probably the most expensive option though it also seems to be the most reliable. I run a chiller for my two buckets in my tent and never have to worry about root rot.

If your current water temp is 74F, hydroguard should work just fine. When I hit summers here, I do 10ml every water change and keep an eye on my roots, check once a week during water changes to make sure they aren’t getting dark and slimy. If a chiller is a route you’re willing to explore, there are a couple write-ups on installs here.

As for internal temp…this should come down after day 11 when your intake fans start to run. I think the lower is on day 11, don’t remember when the upper comes on.

Today is day 9/10 of germination
Started seeing these brown spots at the end of the leaves. Is it something I should be concerned about any ideas?

No worries at this point! Its likely due to when the leaves first started growing, they probably came in contact with the lid when they were growing.

Having issues keeping water levels down but I did put 15ml of hydro guard to compensate hopefully. Any suggestion.

The only suggestion I have is keeping it in a cool spot I keep mine in my bedroom :sleeping_bed: a steady temp will keep it down my room is about 68 degrees only time it jumps up is when I’m cooking :shallow_pan_of_food: :man_cook: witch works out :muscle: for me cause it helps preserve my hydroguard I use about 7ml every water :droplet: change :+1:t2::dash::seedling:

nice! yeah I keep it in my bedroom as well! normal room temperature has been about the same too. I’ve notice if I don’t keep my Air conditioner on (energy saver mode) then my grobo just super heats up so been having to leave AC on consistently to maintain 70 since the eastcoast had a slight increase in our heat

I’m on the east side as well we’re getting a ton of rain :cloud_with_rain: right now witch will spike ur humidity it’s better u don’t let ur machine to hot :hot_face: that thing never turns off better that the things u can control like keeping it cool is best cause the light :bulb: is making heat take care of ur machine she’ll take care of u :+1:t2::dash::seedling:

I hear that, the rain out here is making managing the RH super difficult right now, being in flower doesn’t help… :weary:
