Humidity level incubator last three days


I am now on day 18, almost 19 of our first time hatching eggs. I have a borotto lumia 16 incubator with a humidity pump. I read online that I need to get the humidity level to 75% for the last three days, but I cannot get it over 60% without letting the water go beyond the two water reservoirs. (If have been slowly increasing humidity since last night at the end of day 17 because I realised I couldnít just put it from 53% to 75% in one go.

What humidity level is the minimum for good hatching? A little water at the bottom is okay as it doesnít touch the eggs but I donít want to push it more than I need.

Advice is most appreciated.
