humidifier mold
    #642377 - 05/23/02 09:07 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I am using a kaz healthmist humidifier to provide moisture to my terrarium, and am having to clean it every other day because of mold. I am currently using hydrogenperoxide about one half cup per half gallon of water. Should I be switching to bleach instead of the hydrogen peroxide.

no

you don't want bleach in your humidifier.

maybe you should clean the humidifier out with bleach and kill all the mold.
then go back to the hydrogen peroxide/water mix.

Road is right, do not use bleach in it while you have it running, this may injure it.

Thanks everyone for replying to my post. I appreciate the information. My humidifier motor bit the dust as I was reading the replys. Now I'll have to fall back to less technical ways to moisturize until I can dig out my multimeter and dissect this motor. I am really disappointed with the construction of he health mist humidifier motor. I had only run it for two weeks and when I shut down for cleaning the motor was rusted badly. The outside of this is basically an iron core transformer like your ancient turntable motors and after only two weeks was encrusted with rust. I think Kaz should have painted or sealed this somehow.
