As I recall, it was easy to navigate your site, the items were received in a timely manner and in good condition, and they FIT. It has been a few weeks now but as I recall your site, it was easy to use and accurate.
Thank you very much.
We have used this product now for 2 years -- changing them monthly -- for the 3 humidifiers we have in our house. It keeps the water from getting yucky inbetween weekly cleanings. It is well worth the money.
These cleaning cartridges really help extend the life of my humidifier filters - I would say they easily double the duration of each filter. Given the hardness of our tap water, this extra life is a real plus. A definite worthwhile buy!
We have water with lots of calcium and mineral deposits in my area. The water leaves a pink ring around anything white. I installed these antimicrobial cleaning cartridges with a new filter and so far they have prolonged the life of my filter as opposed to running the humidifier without the cartridge. I will probably buy them again.
these little jewels are great. always make the water clean and clear. have used one for the last 60 days, 30 days longer than suggested. highly recommended.
Great filters. I use them every winter season to keep my humidifer going. The mutti-pack is convienent and saves $$ over single purchaces. They are easy to replace and do not capture any mold smell while using. I do use the water treatment capsules in conjuction with the filters. Together they are a great product combo.
The anti-bacterial device seems to be working, I have had no problems with the humidifier.
I ordered a supply of Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridges for my humidifiers...they arrived in 2-3 days!! This sure beats going out and shopping for them!
I have never used these cartridges before, but since I have been using my first one about 3 weeks I notice that they do seem to keep the humidifier much cleaner.
My humidifiers stay clean, without mold-type build up. I am very happy to have found this product.
I have three humidfyers that I run on a daily basis. I had a throat operation because of cancer and I need the extra humidity. These help to keep the waret clean.
The cleaning cartridges seem to work well but last much longer in the cool mist humidifier rather than the warm air model by Vicks.
I bought these because the humidifier I bought is up where my daughters sleep and I wanted to keep the air as clean as possible. The filter still starts to grow stuff but it washes off easily and it doesn't really grow if I follow the instructions and rinse the filter off every time I refill it. These do seem to help.
Beware of customer service though. I had a bad experience and maybe I was just unlucky. Don't expect any confirmation on your order until it's shipped and if it's on back-order you won't find out until your order doesn't show up.
They do put out good products though if you're willing to deal with a little hassle. I would recommend any of the products I have purchased.
I was pleased with Katz. They sent the wrong item to start with. I called them. They said to keep the wrong item and that they would send the correct one. They had made a mistake and admitted it. I didn't have to mail anything back. That pleased me. I didn't get any "guff". They sent the correct item. I order those Humidifier filters on a regular basis. I know what I order and that is what I eventually received. Katz customer service is to be commended.
Ihave been using these cleaner balls for several years, and change it every month in my humidifier. These balls keep the water tank very clean.
I have never used these before but so far they are what I expected and I am happy with them.
These definitely help to keep the humidifer clean and in better working condition. Would recommend.
I have two 1-1/2 gallon humidifiers. These are an excellent product, before I got them I had to clean the inside of the humidifier almost every week to 10 days because the inside got slimy and smelly. Now, I give it a good rinse weekly and can go over a month without having to clean the inside. I'm seeing less gunk around the filter, too. I plan to keep buying these as iong as I need a humidifier!
The ease of using the cleaner is really great. Just pop one in every 30 days and that's it.
I have extremely hard water full of lime, rust and calcium, so the cleaning cartridge is a welcome site. I have already noticed that the water doesn't have the musty odor it used to have. Hopefully it will lighten my cleaning load too!
This is a wonderfully convenient way to keep my humidifier clean. My only complaint is about the cost of shipping.
our humidifier has never stayed cleaner. The cleaning cartridge has kept our filter clean and the air that comes out of the humidifier smells clean. Will purchase these again!
I am extremely happy with this product. It is assisting in maintaining the cleanliness of my humidifier. It has helped in prolonging the life of the filter.
This wasn't included in my order the first time, but had no issues with customer service & they arrived about 1 wk later. Work great in my humidifier
I have found by experience, that if changed every 4-5 weeks, this product eliminates any problems related to mildew, mould or other fungi.
The antimicrobial cartridges are great and keeps my humidifier clean and running smootly.
This filter is a superior quality product and should stand up well. I've only had it for a couple of weeks.
Have been buying these for a couple of years, They really help with hard water build up.
These cartridges are effective and need no specific work to maintain. Just place them in the machine and forget about it until time to clean and change filter and cartridge.
I have used the Protec Cleaning cartridges since I purchased my humidifier and they always keep it spottlessly clean. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
These little guys are a gem for keeping your humidifier cleaner, longer. Again, it performs exactly as stated, killing bacteria that can cause unpleasant ordors in your humidifier! My humidifier and especially the filter is so much more clearner with these guys helping to keep the tank and filter clean and clear of mold and mildew!! Great product! Don't use your humidifier without these guys!!
These cartridges really help with keep the water algae free and fresh - for a minimum of 30 days!
Although these bulbs are pricey, they do an excellent job and it makes the humidfier maintenance free.
We have used this cartridge for a while now and find it is an inexpensive way to keep the humidier clean and free of microbes.
The Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridge 2-Pack is a very handy way to keep my humidfier clean and bacteria free.
I have tried various humidifier cleaning products. Katz products have by far outoperformed any other type I have tried. One type even left a film on everything in the room. It was awful. Katz is also the easiest to use, last the longest, and is by far the cheapest.
Product was what i expected. I purchase all my humidifier needs from Kaz. There is fast shipping and nice customer service if needed.
I've used this for a couple of years, and it's really great in terms of keeping bacteria and mold at bay. The phone support person was great....he suggested free shipping, and also suggested a double pack which saved a lot of money. THanks for great service and a great product.
I have been using this product for some time now and found that it is a convenient way to keep humidifiers bacteria free. They are a bit pricy at the retail level but buying from KAZ helps a bunch.
These little guys are terrific. I feel much safer having this keeping the humidifier water safe.
I will definately reorder these cleaning cartridges from Kaz -- they really help keep the water in the humidifier clean and free of mold, etc. Kaz shipped my order quickly and accurately -- that works for me!
THE FILTER I TOOK OUT OF MY UNIT WAS SOOOOO NASTY I DECIDED TO TRY THIS ITEM IN MY HUMIDIFIER. WORKED GREAT & AT LEAST MY MIND IS AT PEACE KNOWING I AM NO LONGER BREATHING THE MOLD & MILDEW THAT ACCUMULATED IN THE OLD FILTER.
Love this product. I can tell the difference when I use them in my humdifier. The air smells cleaner. I have been using this product since 2006 & I really love it. I have to run my humdifier every night due to my autoimmune disease Sjogren's Syndrome.
Thank you Kaz for making my purchase easy & quick. I was very satisfied with your service. Two thumbs up!
This is a great product; it truly keeps the water tank in my humidifier fresh. Now that I'm using it regularly, I find the tank needs to be cleaned far less frequently.
This product is simple to use and significantly helps to keep your humidifier filter in good condition for about one month.
Easy ordering process, fast delivery and excellent products for our Hunneywell floor-standing dehumidifier.
I noticed a difference in the quality of air as soon as the cartridge was placed.
This new method of keeping the bacteria away in the water is great. Very easy and convenient and lasts the full month it says. This is my second purchase of said item.
Helps tremendously with our water. It is very hard - so humidifier works much better with cartridge.
This product is easy to use; is better than messy liquids which I can never measure properly and always spill. I recommend them highly.
Works well in any humidifier.........helps to clean. Easier than adding solution, because you just drop in and forget about it.
Very competitive price, combined with free shipping.
Good product selection.
Highly recommended store.
I've using a humidifier for three years because of the harsh conditions here in the high desert of Nevada. With these balls in the water tank, my filters last twice as long - and that's no BULL !!! Before using the Protec Cartridges, the filter would clog up with a lot of funky stuff starting at the bottom and eventually the whole filter. This is a GOOD PRODUCT and it does what it says - we have some nasty water here and the filters, after using Protec Cartridges last double time and don't get still and nasty before discarding them.
This cleaning cartridge eliminates all bad odors coming from the humidifier. It is so easy to use by just placing it in the water reservoir and leaving it there for 30 days. I will definitely purchase this item again.
I tried these on a whim, saw them at CVS. Love them! I don't have to clean out the humidifier every day now! Only problem, they are hard to find, and expensive when I can find them. So I went online and found them, cheaper than any store. I also got them shipped free! I would definitely recommend these to anyone who wants a humidifier in their room/baby's room, but doesn't want to deal with the hassels of having to clean out the humidifier all the time. I usually clean it about once a month with bleach (just a teaspoon per gallon of water), and that kills anything growing in there. The ball really does the hard work for you!!!
LIke many others, I'm guessing, I was very casual about when I changed the anit-microbial cartidges in my humidifier. Laziness, not enough money to buy new ones, whatever it was, I'd only get them when I finally cleaned my filthy humidifier. Recently, I decided I didn't want to clean a filthy humidifier anymore, so I began changing the cartidges every month. It has made a huge difference, leaving me with a much cleaner base tray and filter, and much easier humdifier clean up. So I say what my titie says: It works great if you use it!
The prouct arrived in a timely manner and has been working well since installing them in my Honeywell humidifier. I would difinitely purchase again from Kaz.
These Protec Antimicrobia Cleaning Catridges are really handy to use and do a great job of keeping the humidifier clean and improving moisture output. I will definitely be using them every year to keep my humidifier running smoothly.
I ordered these water tank balls to help keep the water and the tanks cleaner. So far so good! I haven't noticed much of buildup of that nasty stuff that seems to grow on the bottom of the humidifier. I will order these again when I need them!
Excellent product! No more slimy and smelly water reservoirs and they last well beyond 30 days.
Protec has developed the most effective way of protecting your Humidifier from building Bacteria & Mold - (as small as a child's rattel)....just drop the cartridge in the water tank every 30 days. One could not want it any easier!
This product works, and it's not just Kaz' claim.
This product contains approximately one-third ounce of metalic silver. The current value of one ounce (Troy) of silver today, [February 14, 2014,] is about $15.00. So there is $5.00 of silver in this thing, making the price of the product quite reasonable.
Silver has a documented antimicrobial effect. (Check out Wikepedia, "Medical Uses for Silver"). Silver is used for purifiyng the water on the International Space Station, and has been used for various medicinal and antimicrobial purposes for thousands of years. Silver nitrate used to be applied to newborn babies' eyes to prevent blindness from certain diseases. (Now other drugs are used, since even though silver nitrate is safe, occasionally overdosing infants caused adverse effects.) The mechanism for silver killing bacteria, algae and fungi is by the release into the water of a biologically active silver ion. Since the silver is released into the water, eventually there will be no more silver ions released into the water, and you need to replace. The product instructions state change these every 30 days.
Demonstrating the product's efficacy is difficult--how does the consumer document that the product prevented release of e.coli, or some other bacteria into the air? For that, you have to rely on the clear documentation I mentioned above.
It would be nice, however, if there were some type of visual indicator on the device that the silver had been used up, so the consumer had a better idea of when to replace.
I think these cleaners do a good job. Can only expect so much from them however. Water here full of chemicals so the cleaner needs regular help .
This product prevents mold in our Vicks humidifier. But, it is hard to find in local stores. Plus, no one offers discounts on multiple item ordered the way Kaz does. Thanks
The cleaning cartridge really does the job as stated. They are great help in keeping everything clean.
I ratethem as a ive star....very, vey please
Recently started using these in our humidifiers and love them. They allow me to change the filters less frequently and keep the water cleaner overall.
I've been using these for several years - you can see the results on the filters between using and not using these cartridges (I started out not using them and the filters showed mold or other type spots in spite of my cleaning efforts per instruction manuals of two units). I have to feel that the water (and therefore mist) is much purer with the use of these cleaning cartridges.
Previously I was able to buy the Anti Bacterial products at a local hardware store, since I was unable to find them at the store I ordered on line and will most likely order more in the future. I am satisfied with the product.
The antimicrobial cartriges work as advertised. I began using them several years ago. They are easy to use, just drop them into the humidifier's resevoir tanks. Mine tanks have been clean as long as they are active, even though I sometimes leave them beyond the recomended expiration date.
This is one of those products where the seller has all the advantage of making a claim the buyer would have a difficult time testing. I will concede that regular tap water provided by local municipalities might be less than ideal for keeping the air we breathe at a beneficial humidity. It is conceded that we might need a product that kills the unheathy microbes in the water. Whether or not these Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridges actually do that, I cannot claim to have firsthand knowledge.
In terms of the ease of use, I give it some credit. Drop it in the tank and leave it until the beads on the inside have desolved... at least, I think that's how it's supposed to go. There is a recommendation of a more frequent change, but I suspect it's not a hard-and-fast rule. I don't know... if I trust them that it does the job, why wouldn't I trust them on the recommended replacment frequency? I'll default to skepticism, but if it is the case that these do what they are supposed to do, I want that benefit, and I guess I'll have to pay for it in a blind, un-evidenced hope.
So this product so far has been good. The water doesn't smell bad and looks clean plus the humidifier looks clean inside. The bad thing is you have to change it every 30 days.
I really feel that it keeps the water clean in my humidifier as long as you change them once a month along with the filters. It so much easier than trying to get the mineral deposits off the machine.
I don't think there is any way to know if the cleaning cartridges are working well, but I haven't had a reason to think there is a problem.
Works good to soften hard water and reduce mold and other deposits at the bottom of the water tank reservoir.
The cartridges keep the humidifier cleaner longer - buying in a two pack is cheaper!
I purchased these handy devices to easily keep your humidifier water clean and free of bacteria,they work very well but don't let the kids or pets near the h2o as it is toxic to drink.They will prolong the life of your filters if your unit requires them and aid in cleaning.
This product is simple to use, you just drop it in the tank and your good for 30 days. Descently priced and works without any problems.
Protec Antimicrobial Cleaning Cartridge really help to keep the water clean and odor-free
These are a good way to keep your humidifier clean and definitely recommend them. Be sure to clean and descale your unit before using.
This product works as advertised, lengthening the life of replacement filiters. I wish they were sold in packages of 5-6 rather than just 2 however.
I purchased these for the first time last fall and was really happy with how much longer the humidifier was able to go without cleaning it and changing the filter. I would definitely recommend these!!
This product is recommended to be used in the humidifier. It performs fine. I would not use the humidifier without it.
I haven't used them yet, Hoping they will keep the water smelling fresh and clean. I rated them a 4 hoping they are going to work out as I hoped.
Does a good job of keeping water clean in my humidifier but havent used them enough to see how economical they are to use. Looks like you can use them more than once, at least.
Since I started using them in my humidifier, I believe the water has been cleaner. Whether reality or placebo, I use them. Too bad they do not fit in my Essick humidifier.
These drop-in antimicrobial cleaning cartridges do a very nice job of preventing slimy mineral buildup in my cool mist evaporative humidifier, but only for about 30 days at a time. The only drawback: having to change them three or four times over a typical winter.
Product is ok..............but it would have been nice if they had packaged them so that the box didn't get crushed and the little pellets weren't all over the inside of the larger box when I opened it.
I haven't had this product long enough to really give an honest rating but do feel it is doing what it is supposed to do.
these little additions to my humididadier has changed thethe mist . To me its better for my health to use this.
Bought this cartridge as per web site saying this is what I needed for my model,just one problem they did not fit into reservoir opening.I guess they would work well in large unit but not in the smaller ones. Save your money if you have a small unit!!!!
I'm still waiting to receive this product. It did not arrive with the filters. Please advise. Diane Dunn
There was suppose to be two in the box and I only got one. The number to call did not work for shortage or damage products. Had to call the ordering line and the person help me greatly.
Unfortunately this product does not work at all.
After 2 days the mold smell came back and ofter opening the humidifier so did the mold.
I had to purchase these because your company no longer produces the a KAB-8 bacteriostatic treatment. The KAB-8 was the only product effective in fending off the minerals and hard water deposits that pile up on our humidifiers. I am very disappointed in your company when I have repeatedly asked to have you continue making that product. This substitute product is just not effective at all.
I had to remove this item from the order as it was on extended backorder. I bought it from Target since they had it in stock.
Don't bother, waste of money. These did nothing to reduce the white dust. I wouldn't have given it 1 star but it makes me do something on here...
