Water in my Primavera - Forno Bravo Forum: The Wood-Fired Oven Community



Photo Galleries are back! Instructions below.

Dear forum users,
Thank you for your patience with the Photo galleries. We've got your galleries online!
We have finished writing a custom script to migrate the PhotoPlog to vBulletin5’s albums.

Unfortunately V-Bulletin killed the "Photoplogs" in their software upgrade which was unforeseen and we're the first development group to have written a script for getting the galleries back... that said, it took some time to reverse engineer the code and get the albums to move over seamlessly!

Forum users will be able to access their “PhotoPlog” images through their user profile page by clicking on the “Media” tab.
They will also be able to browse other albums by going to the albums page. (On the forum site, there is a link in the black bar beside “Forums” to the albums.)

In order for users to create an album please follow the steps below.
1) Go to user profile page and click “Media”
2) Click Add Photos
3) Enter Photo Gallery Title in the first field
4) Click Upload or Select from Photo Album to add photos
5) Click Post
6) Once posted, the album will be created as a “Topic” on the albums page for the public to see. The topic title will be the “Photo Gallery Title” they created before uploading their photos.

To create this migration path we used vBulletin5’s default album structure. Unfortunately, it won’t work like the “PhotoPlog” but is an album/gallery component on the forum now.

  • Water in my Primavera

    We've had some heavy rain in the NE and even though I had the cap on the chimney and the door closed tight, the rain was coming sideways and a substantial amount of it is in the oven.
    I started a curing fire and the water began dripping from the bottom of the base. I got high heat at the top but nothing over 400 on the sides and maybe 500 on the floor.
    Is the oven a loss or can continued fires dry it out completely?
    I just sent for the cover from FB; hope it's not too late.
    Anything will be appreciated.

    Keep the fires going, it will dry out again!

      If there is water in the insulation under the floor, try and lift up the tiles to expose them to more air. Those will take a long time to dry out without adding air exposure. Wouldn't be bad to keep fires going everyday to help dry it out. You don't have to use the best wood.. it can be anything. I use scrap 1x4 and 2x4's because they're cheap and it burns.
      My oven (for now):

        Ditto - heat will prevail.

            Hi Kid800,

            As everyone else already said you need to re-cure the oven and if the insulation under the floor got wet, please lift the floor tiles to allow it to dry out.

            If you have any other questions feel free to contact me at 1-800-407-5119 ext 14

                  "If there is water in the insulation under the floor, try and lift up the tiles to expose them to more air. "

                  This can be a problem. Especially if your oven design is such that the insulation layer under your floor is confined in a "bathtub".

                  Repeated firings can eventually dry it out, but you may also want to consider drilling holes into this area (either from the side or bottom) to provide positive drainage to speed up the process.
