Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1 reviewer.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Well Have been running this unit for just over two straight weeks now and it seems to be doing just fine. It works better than the previous unit I had and keeps my 2300 sq ft home at about 40% humidity. My old unit could only maintain about 32%. One word of caution though is that it is critical to get and keep the unit level (front to back and side to side) otherwise one bottle wont drain. So if you are having problems with the bottles not draining, check to see if the unit is level. The manufacturer indicates this unit will put out 14 gallons a day. I seriously doubt that claim unless you are under their ideal conditions. Nevertheless, it works well and filling the bottles is easy (I have a deep bath tub). The jury is still out on whether or not the wick lasts an entire season like they claim. So far it is doing well and I'm hopeful but still not holding my breath. When you first fill the unit, follow the instructions and wait 20 minutes before turning it on. If you don't, the wick wont be completely wet and your performance may suffer. Like others have stated, it is made entirely of plastic - but it has to be to work right. Not sure what others were expecting as I don't see that as a negative. It looks nice though; I have it in an upstairs hallway where the cool humid air can filter down to lower levels. All in all I am pleased with the unit. It works well, is easy to maintain, and isn't to loud. November 13, 2012
