Any ideas for a better way to supply a whole house humidifier attached to the plenum of my furnace?
Currently I have a saddle tap (vampire tap) fitting into compression copper tube. Problem is the fitting is getting corroded and it's very difficult to gauge the amount of water feeding to the humidifier.
The overflow/waste tube to the condensate pump was black making it very tough to see how much water I was dumping down the drain. I've changed it out to clear.
I fought with it all winter, measuring it into 5 gallon buckets to see how much I was losing per hour but it would be much easier to solve if I could see how much I was supplying.
I was thinking of sealing off the saddle puncture. Running a new supply branch to near the humidifier then adding a valve either into a clear compression tube or ideally some kind of clear drip chamber like you see on a hospital IV.
