Cool mist leaking, help!!!!
    #1576484 - 05/25/03 04:34 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

What in the heck do u do when water is just constantly leaking out of the sides of ur coolmist, like along the seal where the reservoir meets the top half. My friend tried putting a milk jug full of water for weight to press it down harder but it still does it!!! He was thinking either put a freakin 50 lb. dumbbell on there or maybe just sealing the freakin side w. epoxy and making another hole on top to pour the water in. But I figured, surely someone's had this problem before. so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions?? Thanks a ton!!!

If its leaking due to old age/cracks or whatever some silicone aquarium sealant will work to fix it................ but if your just filling it up too much as suggested, then, well thats a no brainer then :smile:

The big reason this happens is due to the back pressure built up when the output is restricted. Depending on how your system is set up, a second output will probably cut out the drippage. Everything will need adjustment if you do this, though.
I saw a great coolmist once that had a little L-shaped pvc tube coming out of the bottom side, pointing upward, with an endcap on it. The reservoir level could be eyeballed from the outside by the level within this tube----it could also be filled through this tube. The advantage here is that you can duct tape the coolmist and not have to deal with removing it for awhile [to check water levels, filling, etc].

My friend just did this, 3/4-13/16 hole drilled into the top of cap that allows you to screw in the threaded 1/2 ID Nip Adapter......... real clean. Bottom of PVC fitting is wrapped with electrical tape to make a snug fitinto Kaz... No leaks here.

If your cool mist really sucks, and is near death, just go to eBay.

I bought a very nice Vicks Cool Mist (the new blue ones) for only $15 including S&H. Works fine for me.

It's much better than going to the store and paying $30 or $40 for a brand new one.

It's not old or near death, he just got it brand new. Also, the last one he had he could fill up to capacity no problems whatsoever. This one for some reason is just leaking like crazy, I'm not talking about a few drips here a few drips there, we're talking, it's in a smaller rubbermaid container and when he comes home the humidifier is sitting in 2-3 inches of water!!! It must be the backpressure, cuz if someone set one of these on their dresser or the floor and it did this, it would literally ruin everything around it!!!
