    Customer review by ProudNHappyParent

    4.0 stars by ProudNHappyParent

    It does what it needs to do... puts humidity in the air. :-D I bought a humidity thermometer to test it, and it works just fine. Product automatically turns off when it runs out of water (which it does often if you set it to a level and leave it running). Product is supposed to turn off when the desired humidity is reached, but I have yet to see it do that. That could be because the product is whisper quiet. It could also be that the air in my house is super dry (apparently). :-P Supposively, it also has the ability to put vicks in the air for when your child has cold-like symptoms or troubles breathing. I haven't used this feature yet since the vicks wasn't included and my son has yet to be sick. There were coupons included to help with the purchase of separate vicks product (4 $1 off purchase of single product coupons). Overall, I think the humidifier will be better used in the winter season.

    Customer review by PregnantandExcited

    4.0 stars by PregnantandExcited

    This is a good product. The only reason I say it's only good.. not great is because there isn't much steam output. I used it for 1 1/2 weeks straight and the output didn't get any better. I would like more steam when my son is really stuffy. It did seem to do the job though. Overall, it looks good, easy to use, quality is great, maintenance is very simple but the price seemed a little high. It's a quiet unit, with a peaceful hum and gurgle, very tolerable. Cons: The filters are little hard to find and the germicidal bulb can be pricey. Just type GTL3 in your search engine and you'll find the bulb for like $8 or so. Also, the blue light is very bright, it will light up your room but I didn't find this bothersome. Overall, I would recommend this product.

    Used this humidifer for approx a total of 4 months all together and only ran at night in one 10x11 bedroom. Had to turn the dial up 3/4 of the way and it was still dry in the room. The humidifer one night made a clunk noise and it was done. This humidfier was not worth the money. I bought a sunbeam that was $10 cheaper and runs in the living room and kitchen which is open together all day and night long and we have had no problems with it.

    Does it interrup sleep? Some background white noise is normal but some humidifiers are very loud and clunkyl

    • A. You do hear it boiling and bubbling. It's not bad though. I actually find the sound "soothing", as if listening to water bubbling and rolling in a small creek. It may or may not bother you while sleeping. It's never affected my sleep when running and I hear everything when I'm asleep.

    • A. It depends what your version of noisy is... It sounds like boiling water when its turned up which can seem loud when you're in complete quiet, but there is no annoying fan or anything like that.

    The "description" section said it does not use filters but a user "comment" said that is does have filters that must be replaced from time to time.

    • A. This DOES come with filters, and you can use the filters (and have to buy more as they do need to be replaced). It also says that as long as you use distilled water, they are not really necessary. If you use the filters and use hard water, they will need to be replaced often.

      Was this answer helpful?
    • A. The filters that you are talking about is the absorbant pads for hard water conditions. If you have hard water, the heat from boiling will cause the calcium to create deposits that will harden like cement on the heating element area. The little pads fit into the water well of the heating element and they are designed to have the calcium to collect on the little pad, instead of the equipment. If you don't want to replace pads often, when they become crusty from the hard water, just soak the pad in vinegar for a day and it will disolve the calcium and then renew the pad to use again. If you don't have hard water, then you really won't need them, but they are available if you have small deposits on your unit. Either way, if you have any kind of calcium build up from the water and it's hard to get off, just fill the water wells with vinegar for a while and then you can just wipe and rinse the deposits out. Again, the filters are only if you have hard water, but the unit is not using filters for anything else.

    • A. It does have a small filter that you put in the boiling compartment but it comes with 2 of them. It's supposed to catch minerals from your water and the booklet says that you'll have to change it more frequently depending on how hard your water is.

    • A. It comes with 2 mineral filters that sits in center of unit. I didn't even know one was already in the unit until I cleaned it for the first time. I took it out and you don't have to use them. I don't use them & unit works great. Just pour white vinegar in the center & let it sit for 15-20 minutes to clean unit then rinse a few times with water to get all vinegar out. I've had many humidifiers and this is the easiest one I have ever had to clean. Heard if you want to use the pads they are around $8. Even if you use pads you still have to clean the unit. I used a filtered water for my water that might keep it cleaner than with tap water but I am not sure I would have to.

    Does it fill from the top so you have only to pour water in it? Or is it one of those where you have to take the tank out, turn it upside down, fill it, turn it right side up, and then place back in the unit? I am looking for a unit that is easy to fill because I am handicapped.

    • A. It is the same as you described about pulling the tank. The fill port is on the bottom and you have to lift the tanks to refil them.

    • A. Both water tanks are like you said ,you pick it up, turn upside down ,carry to water source,fill it out and flip back in place. The humidifier itself is quite large and you do the water filling part twice. I think you could find an easier one for your needs:)
