Resmed S-9 Humidifier off, but reservoir empties

I think that when you "turn off" humidification on the S9, this is exactly what your are doing. IOW, simply turning the heater plate off that raises the water temp a few degrees.

All that will really do is make the "pass-over" less efficient. It will still evaporate and humidify the air, just not as efficiently or as much as if it were heated. So the water will not disappear as fast, but certainly should not be expected to still be there after 4 days.


So that should really not come as a surprise.

And neither should the above posted statements since it was said up above Big Grin

Sorry, this post needed some good humor.

I have a p 560 and it goes dry in about 4 days. I never turn the heat on and when I use the O2 it will go dry in 2 days. The remstar I had before had a larger tank and would last for several days and was easier to refill.

That 60 series humidifier really is a pain to refill isn't it? It annoys me to no end how they made that.
