    Good ultrasonic humidifier?

    Can anyone reccommend a good ultrasonic humidifier that will humidify a large 5ft x 3ft x 3ft chamber? I had a nice sunpentown humidifier, but it has burned out after 9 months and apparently the mistmaker disk cannot be repaired.

    Thanks.

    I would suggest getting an ultrasonic fountain fogger. They're a little more expensive up front but replacement disks are readily available. The one I'm thinking of has a little buoy/float thing you can buy for it what keeps the fogger at just the right depth under the water no matter how big a container you put it in. You'll also need a fan to blow the fog around, since the fogger itself doesn't push it very far. But for under $80 you can make a nice, powerful humidifier with totally replaceable parts.

    The floats are sold separate:

    I would get a tall, opaque plastic bucket, punch some holes in the lid (one for the fogger's power cable, one for your fan to blow into, and then however many outlet hoses you want) and then attach the fan on top to blow into the bucket - perhaps with a splash guard to protect the electronics. Keeping the fogger in the dark will help prevent crud from growing in the water, which (I'm told) can become a health hazard if you don't clean it occasionally. Then use plastic hose or some waterproof air duct to vent the bucket into your enclosure. If you need to take the flow a long ways, put fans on the output ends of the ducts to provide suction. Also, make sure not to have any U-shaped bends in the hoses where water can collect; preferably the bucket should be at the bottom so that condensation runs back into the reservoir.
    If you don't want to bother with rigging a muffin fan, an aquarium air pump would also work. Just make sure to get a bucket with a fairly tight-sealing lid.

    3 or 5 or more heads?

    Seedjar
    which one do you have? I'm debating between the 1 or 3 or 5 misting discs?
    I don't really save any money buying the 3 vs 1 when I can buy 3 x 1 disc for same price (and slightly cheaper)
    I'm using an ultrasonic humidifier right now which I'm assuming uses the same type of technology and it only has 1 disc so i'm thinking that should suffice for me.
    Whats your experience with them?
