It worked out fine.
1043 fits my model 500. I don't know about the 550.
Hello, Coral! You will have to special order the wick through Home Depot. This is not an item that they stock. If you need further assistance or options for wick availability, please contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Melissa, AIRCARE!
Hello, we only sell the one type of wick filter. Melissa, AIRCARE
Live in NJ where I do not use it during the summer, its humid enough. However I use one filter for the whole winter that's about 5 months. I recommend the Bacteriostatic solution so mold doesn't build up and wick lasts.
It looks like the same as what I bought. However, the model number on your unit should be posted on the box of the filter you are buying.
I cannot answer your question as I do not have a water softener. I recommend contacting the manufacturer that makes the replacement wick.
Yes . The 1043 wick is the recommended wick for the 826000 humidifier.
After a good clean and prep I was able to get the filter that was given to me in my unit,it’s been a basic filling since the piece has been put in.
Humidifier housing has sliding clips on upper and lower cavities. Release lower cavity by removing drain tube and sliding clips toward you. Wick should drop from housing with lower cavity.
