1) Not that I know of, but it's quite possible if set up correctly.

2) With no ultrasonic, use a large diameter, short hose.

3) Tap water is fine, usually.

4) No. Run it 24/7.

This is my setup:

I found that alot of Vicks use Wicking Technology, which means its a little bit weaker of a humidifier.

I actually use 2 Vicks Cool Mists and an ultrasonic.

I would definately recommend grabbing an ultrasonic just to boost the humidity a little.

You need either a paddle bit, or a dremmel and a steady hand. I have mine attached using a conduit fitting.

For everyone with a martha setup, do you have anything at the bottom to catch the moisture? Is a drip pan necissary, or could some plastic be attatched to the plastic drapery of the martha?

I used a "Dremel" tool. Very accurate.

1. yes i used a coolmist without a ultrasonic, i had pretty good results but using a ultrasonic combined iv had great results.

2. I used 1 inch dryer hose that was probably about 16 inches long

3. tap waters cool, If you use warm tap water too iv found it'll raise the room temp a degree or two after being run for awhile.

4. 24/7 for sure

dont expect spectacular results but Iv used a coolmist by myself and it worked, I just had less than optimal results :peace:

No. That one blows air through a moist fiber filter out to a large area.

The Kaz style is the one we all prefer.

Yeah, that should work nicely.

You'll need to buy an electronic timer also, so you can run it for 20 minutes
every 2 hours.

Coolmist 24/7 and you'll have to mess around with the timing on the ultasonic
to get the RH to where you need it. I do 20m every 2h.
