One of the best humidifiers I have used. However, it is a 2 gal - NOT 3 - it does work for 12 hours unless wide open, and it is very easy to handle for filling and preparing. Although it is not actually a 3 gal, I would purchase this humidifier again. It is a nice warm mist and very adjustable.
We purchased this humidifier for our family room because our old one broke. This new one has a safety switch on it! Our old one did not. The switch is on the mechanical side and should connect with the water container. It doesn't.
The only way I could get it to run was to prop up either side with a piece of cork (take your pick), so the switch will connect with the water container. Other than that, it works fine.
Not TOO much moisture,....not dripping wet moisture.
Very simple design and easy to maintain.
I purchased 2 humidifiers for our house. One works pretty consistently and does what I expect. The other one is sketchy at best. When it decides to work, it's fine, but it stops working for no apparent reason. I fill the tank, set it in the base, allas directed. Sometimes it comes on, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it comes on, then stops a few minutes later. Other times, it won't come on at all unless I set it in the base crooked. For the over $50 I paid for it, it would be nice if it worked all the time!
First of all the shipping was terrible. It was shipped from CA and the tracking information showed it never left the fedex facility until the day before it was delivered . And that was 10 days later.
The humidifier was easy to assemble and although the tank was full it kept stopping with a refill light coming on. It was seated correctly but didn't want to feed water on demand. I am returning the item
It works and it's quiet--just what I was looking for.
Optimus 3.0 Gallon Warm Mist Humidifier with Wicking Vapor System works great Lady P
Really like product. my wife has problem with dryness. I get stuffed up in moisture. The other products didn't have a way to control humidity put out to much and ran all the time. the optimus with its moisture adjustment makes it just right for me and my wife to live in more comfort. I am very well pleased.
In some of these reviews you will see that people are complaining because the thing will just stop working. It stops working because of the build up (like stone) on the heating element. The boot that fits over the top of it is of poor design and does not cover the whole element. I took a hammer and chisel to mine four times over the winter to chisel the stone off the element. This was a frustrating task to say the least. I would not buy another one of these, nor would I recommend them to anyone!!! I had the 3.5 gallon version of this model. If they would redesign the heating element and the boot that is supposed to cover it, it may be a good product. But at this time, I cannot say that. Denny
I just got my third of same model today. It replaces #2 which putt-putted as soon as I turned it on. I called the 800 # (manufacturer) and they said it was defective. They were sending another. It came today and appeared "used". A lot of stress but when/if it works, is great, esp. on maintenance. BUT the safety valve/button does not even touch the tank which is supposed to be pushed in to deactivate the safety button. It's supposed to pop out if you remove the tank while the humidifier is still "ON". On three humidifiers, same problem. You decide.
Also, it's about a gallon and a half capacity, not 3 gallons....wait a minute: is that putt-putting I hear?
I bought it because it said it didn't make gurgling noises but it does. I am returning it.
This is the first warm mist humidifier we have ever bought, and we bought a good one.
IT WORKED GOOD FOR 3 DAYS, AND THEN IT STOPPED WORKING. COULD NOT GET THE SMALL SCREW BACK IN IT FOR THE HEAT SLEEVE AREA. I AM GOING TO BE RETURNING IT TO WALMART TOMORROW FOR A REFUND.
Nice ambient heat with moisture. Perfect for my office....
Have only been using about 5 days now, but so far very happy. Work great, very quiet, best humidifier I've ever owned.
This unit met all my expectations. Holds enough water to get me through a long night. No more waking up all night long because I can't breath. And no more winter bloody nose in morning. It does have a slight drumming noise, but my hearing is minimal so it's not a problem for me. All our home water is filtered so haven't had any filter problems with the unit or mineral buildup. Haven't investigated yet where to get replacement filters.
I really like this product. It has a great capacity size, it's easy to clean, and keeps our skin from being so dry in the winter.
The safety switch between the water holder the heater is a bit of an issue. If the water gets too low the safety switch kicks the humidifier off. For that reason I have not been able to keep the humidifier on high for the entire night. Otherwise, it does fill very easily and plenty of vapor comes out of the system on high and low. I did buy this unit thinking I could keep it running on high all night but that didn't turn out to be the case. However, running on low all night does seem to do the trick. I would recommend this unit but keep in mind that it won't run all night on high.
Good humidifier, but is a bit complicated to maintain, since the heater quickly acquires with some scum from the water.
You get what you pay for is all I am say about this product. It doesn't meet your expectations, but does the job with some manual adjustments. So it all depends on how patient a person you are. Puts out good warm steam when it works. You have to constantly keep pushing the two units together in order for the sensor to work. Very light and a lot smaller than it looks in the pictures. Very small unit. Lots of negatives about this product, but it eventually puts out good steam. Patience...patience...patience is all I can say
