I love Vicks vaporizers - so easy to clean, and you can increase the amount of steam by adding a little more salt. I tired other warm steam units and the calcium build up is a pain to deal with. No more soaking my vaporizer with vinegar. Soap, water and a little bleach to kill bacteria. I also like the handle option, make carrying easier.
When running on straight tap water the carbon electrodes will build up a black skin around them. You will see chunks breaking off into the reservoir. If you unplug and disassemble you can clean the electrodes with a green pot scrubber. When they skin over they no longer transmit electricity and you will get no steam. It is a very simple fix and a very simple design.
This humidifier use two electrodes, and the water as current conductor. Electric current flow thru the water generate heat and boil the water. When the water is empty the current stop flowing automatically. No thermostat, no fuse, no complicate controller very robust.
I bought two of them and they are still working after over 10 years. The only maintenance is to clean the electrodes after each season. Remove all mineral deposit on the electrodes using emery paper. There is no white dust deposit on the furniture of my room as in ultrasonic humidifier.
Over 10 years period I have been moving from place to place with different water hardness. Just follow the instruction either dilute with distilled water or add salt. Never have problem.
I am converting it to use as warm mist generator for my terrarium this comming winter . Excellent product for the money.!!!
