A regular maintenance program prolongs the life of the humidifier and helps maintain proper humidity levels in the cellar. Frequency of cleaning and replacement of the drip pad depends on the inlet water conditions and the cleanliness of the cellar air. The drain system may also trap dust and dirt. When water no longer stays on the pad or mineral build-up has started to reduce airflow, the pad needs to be replaced.
For these reasons, we suggest you check the drain on a monthly basis and confirm there is a steady flow of water while unit is in operation. Clean drain if needed. Also, check monthly for unusual noise or vibration, which could be a sign that the debris may be trapped and needs to be removed. Refer to your humidifier’s installation operation and maintenance manual for step-by-step instructions on how to clean the humidifier and replace the evaporative drip pad.
