Hi Bernie, What PaulaO2 said.! and oh, WELCOME! to the forum.!
While that sounds good, it's a really, really bad idea.
If you've ever taken apart an old air conditioner and cleaned the area where the water condenses from, you'll see why. The evaporator coils will be covered with a truly disgusting mix of dust, dead skin cells, bacteria, pollen, animal hair, mold, fungus, and dirt. It's like sweeping up several years worth of dust bunnies from underneath your beds, couches, and the refrigerator, and pouring nice clean water into it and letting it ferment for a few weeks before pouring it into your humidifier.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
Yeah, but it probably won't fit under my bathroom sink! :grin:

Sink? My bottle serves double duty as a doorstop so the fan does not blow the door closed!
As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.
