    Within the past couple of months I have gone through several humidifiers only to have to take them back. This one is here to stay. It does not leak. It doesn't get everything wet. It doesn't produce the algae and other nonsense people post about. If you have these problems, reread the instructions. I have now been using mine for over a month. Very little care and maintenance. I use distilled water in mine since I have problems with the tap water. I actually use mine on my 2 level wooden bookcase. I put a shamwow underneath it to make sure my bookcase is protected. Every couple of days I rinse it out and dry it with a shamwow and put it back together. Every other week I do the full weekly maintenance. It has a nice low white noise sound on the lowest setting, which I prefer since I cannot fall asleep in total silence. It has a nightlight but it is a very small full light. I'm actually planning to get another one cause I'm fixing to move my baby into his own room.

    Tried several others that were too loud or did not steam all the time. This product for the money is great! Has a low hum that I could live with(my hearing is so acute). The other two we had were so loud I could not stand it! We have had it for a couple weeks now and are very pleased with it!

    We bought this humidifier to replace a humidifier that used filters. It was getting expensive to constantly purchase filters when they were in stock so we bought this humidifier and haven't looked back. This humidifier has a humidistat that turns the humidifier on and off at the desired humidity level which saves water and electricity. We have used it for a few weeks and haven't had any problems. If we needed another humidifier I would buy another one of these.

    • Distilled Water Recommended where Hard Water is present In certain areas, tap water is very hard, containing a higher than normal concentration of various minerals. These minerals can be emitted into the air, possibly causing adverse reactions in people with breathing difficulties. In such cases, use only distilled or demineralized water and clean the humidifier every day. If you have hard water, you may notice white dust forming on furniture near your humidifier. This can easily be wiped off with a damp cloth. To avoid white dust, use distilled or demineralized water.

    • I've used city tap water. Since it is chloronated, it probably helps with keeping mold and mildew out too. I would highly recommend NOT using soft water. That has left a crusty salty layer inside every humidifier I ever owned in the past.

    • No you don't, but you have to clean it more often if you don't.

    • No, but it is recommended in hard water areas.

    • It might be a good idea to use distilled water. I have very hard water even though I live in town and the humidifier gets lime buildup like you wouldn't believe. I have not found a way to take it all the way apart and clean the fan (which really needs it) so its not working like it did when it was new. I've had it 2 years now and this year I started using a brita filter to filter the water first and it didn' make much difference.

    • It doesn't say anywhere on the box that distilled water is required. I just used filtered tap water from my faucet Pur water filter and it seems to be working great.
