portable closet cool mist
    #2168065 - 12/08/03 04:12 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

this was constructed a few days ago-I have a vicks cool mist hooked up to the closet but do not understand why it is making so much noise. Could if have to do with the diameter of my hosing? It is approx. 1 1/4 inch diameter and this thing is just loud. I've seen others here and at mycotopia with a small diameter tubing going from the cool mist to the closet. Any ideas on my situation would be much appreciated.

could it be that it's just sitting on something that's causing a loud vibration? an explination of what the sound is, and from where it's eminating would be a little more helpful.

the cool mist is sitting on the box that it came in

I just rigged up a vicks cool mist myself.....it seems to run quiet but it leaks really bad....I ended up getting some sealant...I know you sometimes i have to clean em but I figure when it comes to that I'll just break the seal and then reapply

If the vicks doesn't get enough air it makes a loud noise. Try taking off the filter for a minute and see if the noise goes away. The filters clog very easily especially in a dusty room. Also wouldnt set it on the box. Set it on something sturdy, the inside spins and can create vibration if it is off balance. Your hose diameter is fine but if you dont get anough humidity, it may be becuase of the ridges. Get an ultrasonic and use them in combination.
