Comment by Dave Fengler yesterday

I think we've finally gotten to the point I don't need to run the humidifier.  I haven't run it in almost a week.  Humidity was 44-47% downstairs over the weekend.

I do sprinkle a little anti-bacterial treatment into the water every 3-4 days.  If I forget, in a week it will start to look like a fish tank, if it sits not running.  During the driest part of the season I may not need to use it as much since I'm nearly completely emptying and filling it every day.

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

Lol. my Bionaire dehumidifier just turned on. Room reached 55% in multiple locations.  As so it begins.................

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

Ron: The wick or vaporizer type do not need antibacterial and hard water treatment.

i think we have different interpretations of humidifier types.

There are 1-Steam and 2- Ultrasonic Vaporizers, and there are 3-Evaporative.

All types that have a standing water container need antibacterial and hard water treatment, the hard water depending on locale supplies.  The Honeywell models I have included one or both treatments.

I don't about vaporizer types because no one should use those vapourizers  for guitars, especially the ultrasonic that leave calcium dust all over the guitars. The steam ones are bad also with the possibility of water vapour condensing on guitars.

Also 10 points off could mean your guitars are constantly at 60% humidity...think about it...

rant mode/ off  ;)

Comment by Ron Khoo yesterday

Yup, cheapo accurite is close enough.  I am not too worried about exact humidity level -- between 40 to 50% is fine.  Afterall the guitars are in cases or bags so that will mitigate any rapid changes.  The wick or vaporizer type do not need antibacterial and hard water treatment.

Comment by Dave Fengler yesterday

The electronic part is useless, it never changes.  I use an Acu-rite Temp/hygromter in the room.

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

Dave i tried an electronic humidifier, but returned it when I determined that the  digital meter read humidity 10 points too high.  and no way to calibrate.

Now I stick a HygroSet meter on it.

Comment by Robert Williamson yesterday

yuckey?

i use

Kaz Protec PC-1C Humidifier Cleaning Cartridge
in all my humidifiers, even the big one that has a UV anti-bacerial lite.
Comment by Ron Khoo yesterday

It looks nice with electronic controls.  Mine is cheap and manual.  It gets the humidity roughly to where I need it and if the air is dry, I need to run an additional vaporizer.  I would get another for use in my bedroom, but those things are too loud.  The sound would prevent me from getting my beauty sleep lol.
