Hydro System Instructions


HYDRO SYSTEM 

The Hydro System is a new and innovative humidification process (patent pending) that evenly distributes humidity from edge to edge while eliminating that awkward space taken up by a humidification jar. This system helps you quickly season your humidor and consistently maintain humidity at that magic 65% RH (see note below why 65% is important and unique for our humidors).   

STEP 1: 

Open the Hydro Tray by pulling up on one of the pull tabs located on the lid. Slide finger around to pull other side up. DO NOT force apart. 

STEP 2:

Gently tear open the included "Gel Solution" packet from the pre-cut edge and evenly distribute the gel on the bottom of the Hydro Tray.

STEP 3:

Remove the foil seal from the "Humidor Solution" and replace the cap. Shake well before using. Pour into Hydro Tray on top of the crystals until they are saturated.


STEP 4:

Wait for about 30 minutes and add more solution Hydro Tray. 

STEP 5:

Put Hydro Tray lid back on and place inside the bottom of the humidor.

STEP 6:

Place the wood tray over the Hydro Tray

STEP 7:

Soak the Hydro Stick with humidor solution and fling out the excess moisture. Place on top of the wood tray.

STEP 8:

Wait 24 to 48 hours to season. Repeat steps 3-7 until the humidity reaches 65% for a 24hr period. Do not be afraid to use the entire solution bottle, plus add a little distilled water in the first week during seasoning.

The seasoning process could take up to 7 days. Dry cigars will soak up more humidity which may require more solution in the Hydro Tray and on the Hydro Stick. The humidor is designed to hold 65% humidity while half full of cigars. Keeping an empty humidor or overly full humidor will take more effort.

We believe the optimal humidity range for cigar storage is 65% using our front hygrometer. If using an additional internal hygrometer, shoot for about 68%.

Once seasoned, it’s important to rotate your cigars biweekly and periodically refill the Hydro Tray and rewet Hydro Stick.

NOTE: The front hygrometer reads the open air in front of the humidor, this reading is typically about 5% lower than the area directly above the hydro tray. This is why we recommend keeping CE Humidors at 65% instead of 70%.
