Cool Mist Humidifier Mod
    #3241002 - 10/11/04 12:56 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Ok, so these Vicks standard humidifiers that everyone seems to be using are rated at 18 hours of operation between fills. Is this pretty consistent with everyone's experience? Or does the time between fillings increase dramatically because of the size of the environment? Either way I?m interested in increasing this time. I?m contemplating a design of a gravity-feeding reservoir that would sit above and pipe water into the main reservoir of the humidifier. I?m hoping the weight of the water won?t affect the operation of the humidifier but one never knows. Has anyone seen or tried a mod on the humidifier like this or anything else?

My cool mist lasts 3-4 days on 24/7 and my ultrasonic lasts 2-3 days running 12 hours a day.

THat float valve looks a little tricky to callibrate. Do you know of anyone that currently uses an automated setup like that?

What advantages would that set up add over just feeding a line out of the bottom of a large container of water and sitting it high up feeling into the cool-mist or several lines to several cool-mist? Cool-mist would always stay full and gravity would take care of the rest.
