Cool mist problem, What to do????
    #2149863 - 12/01/03 06:02 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Since, The drying cold air already on the way. I went out to Walmart bough Closet cover set and Holmes Cool mist with build in adj. Hum. control and fan speed. After setting up with plastic inside and out...Now, I got it running 24 hr.. still can't get the hum. level up to 90%. It still hanging at 42%. The only way I could get it up to near 90% is by used a Hand spraying. What gives? Is this Holmes cool mist are junk? OR Do I need to install automatic Spraying mist? (Found a nice one at pet shop)

Good luck trying to get any coolmist to handle the rh. I use a coolmist that runs 24/7 and a ultrasonic that comes on every 2 hrs for 5 min.

Perlite? Never thought of it. I'm going to place a tray of Perlite on shelf while cool mist running and see if it increase Rh.

Magash, The Unltrasnic you install, Does it spray fine mist of water?

Oh BTW, I forgot to meant it... I set the whole Cool mist unit inside and I was begin wonder if that heat coming off from the fan motor possible lower Rh down and pervent it from raise Rh up?

The ultrasonic puts out more of a fog.
