tar heel ants inception chamber help

I have a inception chamber from tarheel ants my campanotus species is living in. Next to the actual nest is a plastic tower covered with mesh, I think it is a water tower but i filled it with water ,but that doesn't seem to do anything. There is also a spot on the nest to put water in, but it dries out every other day if I don't put enough to flood it. If anyone has an inception chamber, could you help me out? :?:

Hey there, If you haven't reached out to Mack yet... The water tower is for humidity, not for actual hydration for the ants. Other than that, you could moisten a cotton ball instead of filling the top cup with water every couple of days. If your nest came with a nest mate ( small tube with a mesh covered end and stopper) fill that with water and place it into the foraging area, or into the port on the side of the glass.
