Can i use the vicks coolmist humidifier without water?
    #4389947 - 07/10/05 04:36 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i'll probably keep water in it regurarly, i have the martha setup with the humidifier being the only source of air circulation, but if my casings and cakes seem to be getting too moist, is it safe to run the humidifier without water? it'd still be circulating air then i'd assume.. right?

They run fine without water , I forgot to refill mine and it had no effect on it. I don't see it making your martha too humid though , just the cool mist alone keeps mine between 88-90%.

alright, great.

i'm going to hook up just a cut garden hose to the middle top edge of the martha, i've got a funnel to ducttape to the humdifier and connect the hose from that. you think this will work alright?

the hose will come into the martha from where magash had posted his was, not directly on top, but at the top of the side wall.

Garden hose is too small , it will cause air pressure to back up and water will leak all around the edges. I couldnt find 1' fittings , so I had to use 3/4' and a small ammount of water leaks out from the tank.

Get the fittings as pictured in the martha post , there in the electrical isle at home depot. Cut a hole for the fitting right above the word KAZ , the fitting comes with a rubber seal and screw ring to hold it tight. Get the 90 degree elbow for the martha itself. It will cost a little more , but it will be a much cleaner job and I think you will be much happier with it.

I can get some pics if you need them for reference.

damn, i was just going to ducttape a funnel to where you tapped over - where the mist comes out. ducttape the hose to the end of that and then insert in the martha.

it says here that a hose should be alright..

http://www.mycotopia.net/site/article.php?24.255


isn't it forceful enough just to hook up something to the top of the humidifier where the mist comes out?

The humidifier from that link is'nt a Vicks cool mist , it may not create as much airflow. From what I can tell they used two garden hoses as well , not one like your suggesting.

If you already have all the stuff you need to do it the way you want , I suppose you can go ahead and rig it up ghetto style and see what the results are. I'm pretty sure you'll get water leaking around the sides though , mine leaks slightly and I'm using a 3/4' hose which is much larger than a garden hose.Good luck :smile:

yea, this is what i've got. i just had it laying around. i suppose i could find a hose with a larger diameter. this is the typical garden hose, it might be a bit bigger, it's a little less than 3/4' diameter.



i'll give it a shot i guess. it's gonna be a pain in the ass to drill through that humidifier

what'd you use to cut to get the fitting so perfect on the side of the martha?

Lay down a few pieces of duct tape for support , then trace around the fitting with a marker. I have some really precise scissors I cut it out with , you could also use a razer knife like an Xacto. There $2 at staples.

I've used 1/2" ID and 1" ID vinyl tubing and have had equal results so I don't think diameter has a huge role. If your having problems maybe your tubing is too long or positioned wrong...
