Use of high-mineral content hard water may cause a white mineral residue to
accumulate on room surfaces near the humidifier. The mineral residue is commonly
called "white dust". The higher the mineral content (the harder your water is), the
greater the potential for white dust. The white dust is not caused by a defect in the
humidifier, but is due only to minerals suspended in the water.
Demineralization Cartridge
The HoMedics demineralization cartridge will help reduce the potential for white
dust, a deposit of minerals left behind from using hard water in your humidifier.
The cartridge should be replaced every 30-40 fillings. The cartridge may need to
be replaced more often when very hard water is used. When the cartridge needs
to be changed, white dust will form around the humidifier. If white residue still
forms around the humidifier after a new cartridge has been inserted, please make
sure that the water you are using is untreated. If you live in a hard water area,
or use a water softener, we recommend the use of distilled water for
better results from the humidifier. Do not use with water softeners.
