The reviews complain about spilling water and loud fan. Yep, the fan is awful above speed 1. However, you honestly don’t need it higher then speed 1. Speed 1 does my whole house. I think the higher speeds are meant for commercial type spaces, as too high of a speed will make the ceiling damp, and that’s bad! So honestly, the fan noise is irrelevant imo.

The water spilling is because those people are opening the trap door too wide. I open it about an inch, and that prevents splashing.

I bought a couple 4L jugs of water at walmart. I refill those twice, once a day. My dad has to do it twice a day, as some apartments are MUCH dryer then houses, and I’m in a townhouse.

You can buy any brand of chemical, but this is the one I just happen to buy. $10 is a normal price. Dont pay more for it! I stalk it and got a couple bottles for $6!!

I go through 1 bottle a season, and dad goes through 2. So buy a couple at a time, and plan for a spare for the next season. Mid to late season it can be hard to find it, esp in stores.

Whatever you do, do not buy a house sized humidifier that fills by removable tanks. Those tanks are so heavy, and dad and his friends have all had them fail and dump water on the floor while away or sleeping. Mine is just a big tub you fill. So nothing to fail. Unless you overfill it lol
