I got this from Walmart store in Atlanta in 2012 after I had my twins. I left it lying around not sure it will be much use. I decided to try it out once when my daughter was coughing. Best response to cold ever! She slept all through the night without any coughing. I always put the vapor rub in it and (sometimes a pinch of salt in the water) to get the steam out very well. I love how it naturally clears the cold and cough without my having to use a lot of cough syrup or any other drugs. I had another baby last year and when she was about 3 months and obviously too young for medication she caught a cold her siblings brought back from school. We slept through the night with this together and she slept all through the night without wheezing or a runny nose. New mums, get this. It has helped me too with sore throats and the like. I think this item should be in every household the same way we stock up on soap!

I had major surgery 10 days ago and am slowly recovering at home. With the dry heated air from our furnace, my nose and throat would get dried up while sleeping. With all the discomforts/pain from surgery that only time will heal, I decided to buy this Vicks vaporizer to fix at least this one problem now. No more dried out nose and throat. No more waking myself with a snort/snore or coughing. This vaporizer puts out just the right amount of steam in my 12x12 open living room where I am sleeping/recovering from my surgery. No excess condensation, just wonderful feeling of normal. I even run it through the day and I noticed less static and I don't feel like a prune drying in the dessert Sun any more. Highly recommend especially for the price. Might go buy a second one for the master bedroom once I am back to sleeping in bed, but keep one in living room for use during the day.

I had seen many vaporizors in the past, but never had to have one myself until my 8 month old grandson came down with nasty cold. His pediatrician recomended a warm vaporizor to run to help his stuffy nose. This type will moisten the air through the house if you run gas heaters, thuslty robbing the air of any moisture and making it hard on sinuses. Once I started usung this model paired with Vicks vapor solution and a couple of pinches of salt, I immediately noticed a better quality in the air through my house by the second day. I placed this in the living room and had one in the bedroom where my grandson slept. Keep in mind that ou have to regualry monitor the water lever as to not run the unit dry and burn up the vapor unit (the center part the steam comes out of). I used reular tap water instead of distilled water. We also used it during the begining of spring to keep the pollen and dust down for my daughters allergies.

Noticed there aren't alot of people that are giving this positive reviews. We happen to think this vaporizer *it is not a humidifier* works awesome for it's cost. For less then $20 bucks, it's extremely simple to operate. Put water into tank up to the fill mark *make sure not to overfill, it "spits" water* and plug into the wall. If you look closely at the steam guard, you can see the steam this unit is making. After a few hours, glance again and the water level is dropping. If there isn't enough steam for your liking, add a pinch or two of salt. This will make the water hotter, therefor creating more steam. Only problem I've found, is if you put in too much salt, the unit tends to die quickly. We learned this the hard way, first unit lasted 6 months, but the replacement we purchased is working awesome *bought the same unit again, just using less salt* Very easy to clean as well, once every few weeks let it soak in pure vinegar for 20 minutes, rinse throughly, and continue with your regular use. Maybe you can purchase other vaporizers / humidifiers for $100, but compare prices, for $20, you can't go wrong!!

When I get sick, I get in a knockdown-drag out fight with my sinuses (me being the one knocked down), which causes a lot of breathing complications after the cold is gone. I will have a cough for months. This handy-dandy vaporizer, however, makes the cough pass much faster. I find that if I can spend enough time around it, it works better at relieving my chest congestion than Mucinex (and if you look at the price of the two, it becomes clear what is the better value). We've had this thing for quite a while (years now) and it has consistently provided more relief of cold and flu symptoms than any cold medicine. Other things you may want to know: it's quiet (sounds like rain outside or a quiet coffee maker without the hissing), I don't find the light to be that bright but I'd probably sleep through a nuclear explosion (you could probably put a piece of tape over the light if it bothers you), you don't have to fill it that often, and if you want more steam, add more salt! Very simple to operate, great value, best cold and flu relief for me. Highly recommend it :)

We bought this one because our old vaporizer had seen better days. I loved that the base fit nicely in the bathroom sink, and the fill line allowed it to be removed without spilling any water. Much more convenient than filling the old one in the bathtub! The vaporizer works great, my only recommendation is to read the instruction booklet, because our water has a low mineral content, and the booklet informed us to add a little salt to the water if it doesn't work within a few minutes. If we hadn't read that, we would have thought it didn't work, but adding the salt did the trick. Overall a great product, very satisfied with the purchase.

my baby has a cold (stuffy nose and cough) and has been waking up 3-4 times a night when she used to sleep through the night. something had to change so we decided to get this and try it. it is seriously a lifesaver! i told my husband this morning, there are lots of good things about it. 1. it makes the room humid, so its easier to breath, and when you stick in a vicks vapopad, it smells great and clears the nose right up. 2. it has a tiny green light on it. i've been wanting a night light! haha. 3. it seriously warms the room. its so nice. i don't have to turn the heater on in my baby room, and its great for winter. maybe not so much summer. 4. the water kind of bubbles, so it makes a little noise. i like to call this makeshift white noise :) i seriously love it. oh, and she slept through the night the first time setting it up. i would definitely buy over and over.

I bought this last night because i couldn't take my extremely dry nose and sore throat. It did take me a while to get the right amount of salt that it needed but after that it is a dream. Maybe i put too much salt(i got inpatient with the two pinches at a time) because mine pumps out quiet a bit of steam(but water doesn't spew out) so it runs out of water fast. But for a better feeling nose i don't mind refilling it at night.(i'm up anyways) I think i might clean it out and add less salt so it can keep going longer. Overall i love this thing. it's cheap and a great product. If you're thinking of getting this one or a more expensive one, get this one. it's so simple to use and has great results. I don't know how long it will last but as long as it gets me through this winter. i'm happy. i can't really expect it to last me forever because the price is so cheap but it doesn't bother me.

I have used this unit for the last couple of years considering the cost of under $20..however I had to buy between 2 or 3 units a year because the vaporizers only last for 3-6months at a time. I have two young children that can and will get sick easily especially during the winter months. The heat elements would clog up very easily and quickly. I would need to put quite a bit of salt into the unit to get it to start..if I added to much I would have to start over. I would have to fill the vaporizer twice a night to get maxium usuage out of it...with two children needing the same steam we would go through the water a lot. I am planning on buying something else needing the durablity to last longer, and its not dependable. I am also disappointed that Walmart only sells one vaporizer in the whole store..since my children's doctor has said that vaporizers work better than humidifers..but overall for the cost you are getting what you are paying for.

I was hesitant to buy this product because of all the negative reviews. When I went to my local Walmart, it was on special for $10 so I figured I couldn't go wrong for that price. I've had it for almost a year and it's been fantastic. I use it when the sparks start flying in the house or during a sinus episode so the unit gets used regularly in the winter. I've never had to use salt to get more steam and clean up is very easy. The grey scaling effect is kind of gross in the tank but a little soak with vinegar takes care of everything about once every 2 weeks. A full tank goes 16-18 hours before needing a refill. Easy to use, easy to clean and a great price. What's not to like?

  • A. Depending on the hardness of your water and how much salt you added to the water it should take about 15 minutes.

  • A. It depends on the temp of the water, if you put in cold water straight from your kitchen sink, it may take 5 minutes. If you put in warm / hot water, the steam will come out within seconds. Keep in mind the unit has to heat up the water in order to produce water vapors.

  • A. Depends on the hardness of your water. Try a pinch or two. If you don't get steam, add more a pinch at a time until you get the steam you want. But note, it could take 10-15 minutes between additions for the results to show. It's a pain but you only have to do this trial and error process once and maybe not at all depending on your water.

  • A. Absolutely do NOT add water to the unit. The manufacturer specifically states NOT to use salt OR softened water (because of the salt-content in salt water). This is because the salt lowers the boiling point. (Ever salt your water on the stove to get it to boil sooner/quicker?) If you use salt or softened water, the water will BOIL too easily/quickly and instead of the quiet sound the unit typically makes, you may now hear the sound of BOILING WATER. The unit is controlled to NOT give off too much steam at a time...it's a safety feature. Regular tap water (UN-softened) is ideal.

  • A. The instructions make recommendations as to the salt but it depends on your water. If you have hard water you may not need salt. If your water is pretty normal, you will probably only need a pinch. Just adjust the amount until you have nice steam coming out.

  • A. Start with a little and then see. The reason for the salt is because your water may not have enough ions. DO NOT USE DISTILLED WATER. Basically how this works is there are two probes in the vaporizer that conduct a electric charge. However, in order for the charge to run, they have to go through a medium ( like electricity running through a wire). If the water has no ions, then there is no medium.

  • A. I'd try a pinch of baking soda instead of salt. Start with a pinch, if it's not working in a few minutes, add another pinch until it works. The amount you need depends on the harness of your water.

  • A. Just residue left behind by the boiled water. That's why you need to rinse out the tanl after every use and the steam tank weekly.

  • A. So water in general is not pure. Water is the great solvent, meaning they dissolve a lot of things. You can not see it in the water but there is a lot of things dissolved in it. When you steam the water, what is dissolved in the water will not be included in the steam. The black stuff is just the residue, it is not mold or anything. Just clean it out. Also DO NOT USE DISTILLED WATER in a n effort to not have the black residue. Distilled water has no ions and thus there will be no steam created.

  • A. Nothing to worry over. It is the particles from the dirt and stuff in the air. If your using it often just rinse and change out the water after each use.To clean it you just set the middle part in a tupperware with some vinegar and water to soak for about ten minutes. Rinse with water and tap out the gunk the best you can. The bottom part you just rinse with some water and then dry. Put it up and it will be ready to go for the next flu season. Remember you wont always get all the gunk but its okay it wont harm you
