Warm air at brooding temperature can result in dehydration of the hatchlings so the TLC-40 and 50 incorporate a water reservoir over which air is circulated to increase humidity within the chamber. The water reservoir is filled from outside the unit and is clear, allowing the user to monitor the water level.

The reservoir contains white evaporating block to help increase humidity and these blocks are available. The water reservoir is removable for cleaning. The low weight of the TLC-40 and 50 make them easy to carry.
