Question

Are both water tanks suppose to go empty?

I recently purchased this unit and only one of the tanks goes empty while the other remains full, is this normal or a defect? Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am thinking about returning this.

Only one will empty at a time, not both equally. If one is completely empty and the other one stays full then it is a defect.

What keeps the water from running on through? I bought one and the water runs out.

I bought one and it didn't have any bottom to hold the water in and all of the water run all over the floor. Was it suppose to have some kind of solid bottom?

Gravity keeps the water from flowing over the trough where the filter sits. Once the filled tanks are in place, they will gurgle as they fill the trough. Once the trough is full, the gurgle will stop and gravity will prevent overflow. Don't disturb the tanks or the unit once the tanks are filled and in place in the unit.

You should have two one gallon plastic water tanks that come with the humidifier. Do not add water anywhere except in these tanks.

The middle of the bottom is open, but is surrounded by a canal like resivor which goes around the open hole and holds the water. It should not of leaked water out onto your floor. Maybe there was something wrong with yours.

does this put out white powder all over everything?

Answers
answer 1
No, it does not suffer from that white powder problem. Humidifiers that use ultrasonic means to vaporize the water tend to carry the minerals with the water into the air. That causes the white powder which eventually falls out of the air. Humidifiers (like this one) that use a wick/filter trap the minerals in the wick so they don't end up in the air.

Question

Does this automatically shut off if we have an emergency and can't get back to our house before 24 hours?

Sometimes we go to town from our mountain home and for various reasons such as snow or highway closure, might not be able to get back the same day. Do we just have to make sure this is off every time we go to town thinking we will be back in a few hours? Will the motor burn out if the water is gone or will the fan just blow without causing any damage? We purchased this today thinking it had an automatic shut-off if the water got too low, but don't see that anywhere in the instruction leaflet or on the box now that we've set it up!

No, there is no auto-shutoff if the water runs out. It does stop if it reaches the humidity level you specify, however. There should be no danger from the fan running after water runs out.

You are safe. I recommend that you set it to the lowest setting and fill the tanks before you leave. It will not harm the humidifier if it runs out of water. It will just blow air.

Humidifiers should be cleaned regularly with a light solution of chlorine bleach and water. I clean all areas that are in contact with water and/or moisture as well as a wipe down of entire unit. Replace filter as necessary too when they start to turn brown/grayish.

answer 2
The instruction sheet tells how to clean it daily and weekly. Run it dry of water, unplug, wash filter, etc., having used other similar humidifiers every winter for 20 years, I have discovered it works for me to add about 1 teaspoon of clorine bleach to each water bottle about every 3rd fill and clean by the instructions after 3 months, which in the south will be end of seasons use.

There are cleaning instructions in the manual that came with your humidifier. It is relatively simple. Run the humidifier on high without the water tanks and filter for 30 mins. Turn it off and wipe out with a clean cloth. That's it. The filter needs to be changed when it turns brown from top to bottom.

The instruction booklet that came with the unit gives specific directions on how to clean it. If you've lost the booklet, I'm sure you can look up cleaning instructions for "evaporative humidifiers" online.

You can place it on the floor, but the directions say not to put it on "carpet, rug, or finished floors", so I guess that just leaves the kitchen floor.

The recommended humidity is not dependent on the size of the home. It should be set based on the contents. If you have lots of fine wood furniture, oil paintings, etc. you might need to carefully control the humidity. Otherwise keep it in the comfort zone which is 35-45% RH.

sq ft should not make any difference. shoot for 45% relative humidity. if you are extra sensitive 50% OK.

Above 25%. Generally 25 to 40% is achievable and healthiest. The humidity range you want is the same regardless of the size of your home.
