Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not that impressed. I don't like this product. This product could be a lot better then what it is. I have three furnaces and two Wait humidifiers. I bought these because they were marketed to me as a low maintenance item. Well, I found that is not true. They are high maintenance. Parts and filters are expensive too. I am tired of the constant attention required to keep them working. The biggest problem with this unit is the temperamental air flow sensor. It works sometimes and does not work most other times. The air flow sensor is what triggers the unit to turn the water on and humidify the air. They require constant attention. My house is dry. I am looking for something better.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid at all costs. Do NOT waste your money. I bought this product assuming it was a top-of-the-line humidifier. After a year, the valve assembly seized and could not be corrected. I bought a second unit (Home Depot does not carry a replacement piece even though it would take less than ten minutes to install a new valve if available)The second unit lasted less than a year also, falling victim to the same problem. The documentation that comes with the unit does not suggest a fix or any preventative steps to take to avoid this problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from this product Home Depot staff were GREAT. The product...terrible. Purchased the humidifier, installed it and it didn't work. Followed the trouble shooting, still nothing. Home Depot staff said bring in it and exchange it. Done. New one installed and it didn't work either, even after trouble shooting with the manufacturer. They said they would send out a new part. Arrived one week later, installed the new part and it started working...for about 30 seconds and then the whole unit crapped out and nothing would turn on. Took it to Home Depot and exchanged it for a different brand (Honeywell) that is now installed and working.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from wait6000 I am a contractor and purchased 4 humidifiers last week and installed in 4 different houses. First of all, this humidifier is very easy to install and comes with a DVD. Before installation watch the video first and make sure if all the tools are present. I was new for this humidifier but not any more. It is very easy to install and works like it should, it comes with heat sensor and dip switch setting in case if unit is not shutting off try different setting. All humidifiers works great. One more thing I found this unit can be hard wire with the furnace. I highly recommend this unit. Great buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Be Aware Be aware.. The supplier of this unit does NOT supply the PRESSURE SWITCH to this unit anymore(discontinued part)...the manual states that a humidity percentage of at least 35-40% for the initial set up in order for the unit to cycle on with the furnace. I set it to 50% and the unit would not engage. I called customer service and was told to set it to 60%....and to remove supply duct and test with a hair dryer. I set the humidifier stat to 60% first and the unit cycled on. Also the drain hose that comes with the unit is useless.... Full of kinks which will not come out...buy a separate drain hose of quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple and works well Not too hard to install and works well. I am in a fairly new house and after the initial dry-out of the house the indoor humidity dropped way too low ~20%. I installed the humidifier as per their instructions and after about a week the humidity levels were being controlled in a comfortable range. Keep in mind that a lot of wood and other materials will absorb the moister out of the air and it will take a while to reach a stable level so you have to be patient. This was the same humidifier that I installed in my parents house around 15+ years ago. I picked up this one because of the problem free operation at their house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from BUY and drain pipe along with it this is the 3rd one I have bought, Bought the Wait 500 model for 2 of my previous houses and had no issue's. The 6000 model is very similar, but digital instead of mechanical. Not sure if that is worth the extra money. The humidity sensor is placed just above the unit, which when you install it you have o make sure it does not fall in front of the unit, as there is not any retainer clips to hold it above the unit. If it falls in front, it starts to measure the humidity coming through the unit and not the humidity in the house. My biggest beef is the cheap drain pipe that comes with the unit. It came nicely bundled in a roll, but extremely kinked. Spent 45 minutes trying to get the kinks removed , as I could not even blow air through it. Wast of time, returned to HomeDepot and bought another drain pipe for $10. All in all added another 1.75 hours to the install. Sent Wait an email about it, never got a reply.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from AirKing 600 Expensive garbage. First one was defective and exchanged. Second one has never worked properly since purchased. The manual refers to setting at 15 per cent when going away but cannot be set below 30 per cent. Now it "hangs up: after the furnace switches off and wastes water.

how much water does it use perday

Asked by: Anonymous
This humidifier incorporates a restrictor which meters the amount of water supplied to the unit. In a average home the unit will use 37 US Gallons (31 Imp. Gallons, 140 Litres) per 24 hrs of operation. NOTE: Your furnace will not run continuously 24 hrs a day – in an average home the 37 gallons will be used over a 3 day period. Source: Air King Canada

What do I set it at for a house temp of 24 ? How do I get more humidity in my home?

Asked by: Anonymous
Unfortunately, the humidity level you set in your home is dependent on the outdoor temperature and since that is constantly changing, so should your indoor humidity. At 24 degrees inside you could set your humidity level at 30-35% without fogging your windows if the outside temperature is around 0 C. As the temperature drops outside, the temperature of the windows on the inside of your home also drops. Therefore you will need to reduce your humidifer setting to prevent excess moisture formation on your windows.

Purchased a Model 6000 Humidifier last season. It worked great.

This season it worked fine for 4 weeks, then developed a leak. All the water lines appear fine and not leaking. The water is flowing from the body of the unit. I cannot find anything in your brochure indicating trouble shooting matters. I have since shut down the unit and will await any response. Otherwise I will contact our local Home Depot.
Asked by: Anonymous
If the unit is operating properly, then the water never actually touches the housing and simply flows through the evaporator pad assembly and out the drain/funnel at the bottom of the housing. If you've got a leak I suspect one of two basic issues: 1) water is flowing into the housing faster than it can flow out. Check your drain hose... is it plugged or does it have any kinks? 2) the water isn't flowing into the evaporator pad assembly like it should be and some/all is going directly into the housing (which isn't sealed and will leak). Did the water tube fall off the evaporator pad assembly? Is water somehow leaking out of the evaporator pad assembly?

Humidisense Light not on

I just installed a WAIT 6000 humidifier, the unit has power I can manually adjust the humidity; however the green humidisense light will not come on. I verified water and air flow to unit. Air getting to unit is hot, unit is showing 15% humidity however never cycles on. I replaced a faulty general air humifidier and placed in the same location.

Forced Air Furnace

I have a forced air furnace mainly run on oil, very rarely with the thermopump, will this humidifier work on this type of furnace??
Asked by: Vito
Unfortunately this unit will not work with your furnace as the unit is heat activated and with the oil it will not get hot enough to activated the unit. It is recommended to use the AK850 which has a stainless steel drum style.

Will a wall mounted humidistat activate the humidifier if the automatic internal one doesn't?

I've just installed the Model 6000, double checked everything, used rigid pipe. Because of air-conditioning coils in the hot duct I had to locate the pipe slightly higher than the Humidifier. Everything appears to be in order except the slight angle of the pipe. Its not working. Will a remote humidistat motivate the thing?
