Myself & several of the guys I herf with on a regular basis have just removed the foam to increase the volume of water that it holds and left it at that. It still does as it claims to but there is a lot less time spent in baby sitting the water level.......... Putting any media back in it will just consume space in the water cartridge and seem kind of pointless in this type of device.

so you are saying that you are now "water only" in the cartridge?

i thought about that originally but i decided to use the crystals so the humidity would enver spike too high. but now im just using beads to safeguard that.... perfect combo (even though i havent needed the beads, just did it for peace of mind)

Just water in the Oasis and a large Tupperware lid with the edges trimmed down a bit to fit under the bottom shelf with about 1lb. of 65% beads in it.
No bubbles no troubles!!!

This is exactly what I was looking for. Sorry to bump an old thread folks, but one more question:

I have the Hydra LG and have removed it due to the humidity this summer (tons of rain up this way). When I removed it and let it dry out, the cartrdge was moldier than a 5 month old glass of milk. So I would like to do the whole "gell" thing.

Should I do half the beads with PG and half of them with just distilled?

I don't use 50/50 with the gel in my oasis only distilled water. I am unsure if 50/50 would accomplish anything as the beads are only designed to hold water.

I will say that when I went through the process after S15 posted this thread I tried two different types of gell I found at the local hobby shop. I tried a spherical type and a more chunky random type. I like the latter as the spheres seem too good at holding water and were designed more to look nice in a vase.

I tore the foam out of my hydras a long time ago.
I fill them with distilled water, and every time they go empty I scrub them out with a bottle brush.
I tried the gel route and the gel would crust over in the hydra and then they'd go off on the alarm. Plus the gel turns green and grows stuff.
Just plain old distilled water seems to work real well.

I debated about what to do with the oasis after it ruined about 40 cigars and took the easy route, stomped the crap out of it and threw it in the trash where it belonged. Worst $100 piece of junk ever. Nothing on them works right on any kind of dependable basis. Sorry but I rant on certain things that I feel are inferior and I am still venting on the Oasis after 2 years. Beads have relieved my humidity headache quite well.

Did S15's cracked ice method on my oasis ultra several months ago and haven't had a single issue, works like a champ!

Here are some detailed pics of the Watersorb crystals I added to my Oasis after ripping the foam out.......amazing how they grow so quickly

Word of caution: Make sure not to put too many in the Oasis or the crystals will rise and possibly interact with the Oasis fan
