herrmidifer humidifier model 7000


i have one of the above mounted in the return stream of the home hot air gas fired heating plant. it does a very adequate job.

it is plagued with slime(algae growth) during the heating season, calling for several cleanings of the water holding vessel.

the water is refilled by a float valve cock from a potable water supply. the supply is well water that is treated and the same that is drunk by the household.

is there some sort of additive that can be added on a schedule to prevent, deter or moderate the formation of the slime(algae) over the heating season?
regards,
fish96

Can't vouch for below products:

What I do is manually drain the reservoir tank every week, into a bucket.
