Filter OK; Machine not OK
This filter works as advertised. It allows distilled water to "moisturize" the air flowing through it. No problems. However the machine which uses this filter is far less than ideal. This cold air "vapor free" humidifying machine is the ProCare Model PCCM-832N. The specific fault with the machine lies in the fact it does not provide adequate support for the filter itself to be held in place vertically. The slight positive pressure of incoming air pushes the filter over and toward the interior of the machine. This allows ambient air to blow through - AND AROUND THE FILTER - mostly without going through the actual filter. Since this happens, the defect defeats the intended purpose of humidifying the air flow. To correct for this design defect, I hand-built a simple structure out of some plastic strips I had laying around to hold the filter in place via these new "straps" at both sides and the bottom of the area where the filter is intended to go; and then pop-riveted them directly to the existing "water tray" (for lack of better words) into which water feeds by gravity from the resevoir above. Now the filter is held securely in the vertical position and won't "cave in" toward the inside of the machine, but can be easily removed for cleaning or replacement, since the top remains open. This makes up for what I consider a very poor design of the machine itself. It would be better IF the machine included its own supported cavity into which the filter would go - and be held in position.
The product itself is excellent. Good quality materials and a perfect fit. The only problem was the length of time from when I submitted my order and when it was delivered. Entirely too long (17 Days).
The product was exactly what I ordered and works in my humidifier. Positive experience with this order.
