I recently purchased an ultrasonic humidifier. When I received it, I immediately tried it out and nothing... I read the directions of course and re-read them a few times. I checked the water level, tried many different containers and nada.
When I got home from work a few days ago, my son who is 12 was playing with it and what do you know... he got mist.
I didn't have time to put it up in my grow room until today. I took the container he used, filled it up with distilled water and nothing.
I was starting to get irritated at this point so I started experimenting with different pots again. I put the distilled water back in the jug so I wouldn't waste it while experimenting. Everything I tried worked until I poured out the tap water and put the distilled water in.
I finally realized it wouldn't work with pure distilled water. So I tried it with 3 parts distilled and 1 part tap and voila, it worked. Finally!
Anyone else have this experience? Is it just the model I have or a general rule of thumb?
