ok. i'm slightly confused

I bought a martha closet and a humidifier a few weeks ago, and it seems to work pretty good, except for the big ass puddle of water i have to suck out of the bottom every morning (i havent figured out how to properly drain it without making a mess yet.)
it keeps the humidity at about 92 pretty steady.

my question though is that the martha teks i read say that you need two humidifiers - a cool mist type running 24/7 and an ultrasonic humidifier that kicks on for 15 minutes every couple of hours...
the humidifer i bought is a "Sunbeam Health at Home ultrasonic cool mist humidifer" with patent pending NiteView technology (the one with the crazy blue light when you turn it on)

which is this? is it an ultrasonic or a cool mist humidifier. is it both?

somebody throw me a bone here, i'm confused

the ultrasonic is a fogger that you can usually find at pet stores

A coolmist has an IMPELLER - that SPINS - which picks up minute amounts of water - which it exaughts out as micron size water mist. The IMPELLER base has "vains" on it - that create a fan like action - that causes air flow - the mist travels out on.

Sounds like you have an ULTRASONIC humidifier, not an old school cool mist.


One of the many types of old school IMPELLER type coolmists.

yeah, i think you're right.
that's probably why i have to suck up so much water out of the bottom of the thing every morning... i'm running an ultrasonic humidifer 24/7... it doesnt seem to be too wet for the bin of h-poo i have in there (its not cased, but i've been dunking it and sprinkling a teency bit of verm on it between flushes - its actually doing way better than i'd expected) i bet a true casing would get soaked in there...

so i guess i need to go out and spend some more money before i put some true casings in this thing... an old school impeller type coolmist would be cheaper than i paid for my ultrasonic, no? it was like 35 bucks at kmart...
