With having two young children, we find we are often in need of a vaporizer. This winter, we are experimenting with running a vaporizer year round, whether they are sick or not.
The problem, is finding a good vaporizer. Does anyone have any suggestions. Here’s the criteria I’m looking for:
– Cool mist
– Ultra-sonic – these run quieter and have great control on mist output. When the girls aren’t sick, we run it on a very low setting over night.
– Easy cleaning – the ultra-sonic one we just discarded (due to mineral deposits I couldn’t get off the base, hence it wasn’t putting out mist) made it virtually impossible to clean the tube that the mist travels up. I found a thick, gross looking layer of pink slime coating the inside of this tube. I need to be able to get a cleaning brush/rag on every internal surface. I handle vaporizer cleaning, while I’m happy to use power tools to get things dis-assembled and clean, I don’t know that the vaporizer will work once I’m done with it. 🙂
– Easy filling — This is not a necessity, but would be very nice. Does that tank stay upright when upside down?
There’s the challenge. What have you found to work well? When responding, if you have both the model number and the name of the manufacturer I would be grateful.
