    Hey guys first time posting and new to monotubs. So my concern is that I think there’s too much moisture in my tub. Last night I noticed allot or at least a noticeable amount of water in between the liner and the tub. Will that be an issue? If so how can I fix it and should I be worried about contamination? Any help is appreciated

    So where that line is all the dark underneath that is water that when the tub is moved it kinda sloshes around in there. Would have posted a video but it wasn’t letting me

    I just leave it there and dump it out when the tub is spent.

    So not sure if I did something wrong but I’ve been trying to get this tub to pin for 2 1/2 weeks now and it’s starting to worry me that I might have messed something up along the way. Kinda feel like I have a contam going but not sure. What do you guys think CA40566A-AB43-490A-AA5A-69E846FBE7B7.jpeg 0B6867C7-80D7-4853-BA20-7D2A913D73D5.jpeg

    I feel that. I know I kinda jumped the gun on it a little cause I was getting some piss at the bottom of the bat and kinda panicked and went for it. Shoulda just been patient. Now I know ‍♂️ So do you think it’s a total loss or can there be some salvaging done?

    I'd ride it out mate it just might take a bit more patience, either way though it's all learning on the go and when it goes wrong we learn the most, as long as we keep at it and have another go :hatsoff:

    Update. I misted the tub with a mixture of H2O2 and water cause it was looking like some cobweb nonsense was happening. Left it in the dark for a couple of days and I’m m starting to get some growth


    Any tips for the next step always appreciated
