Humidifier fill from float valve?


I have a console humidifier that requires daily filling from buckets in the cold weather. I was thinking of jury-rigging an automatic fill device connected to my plumbing that would run off a toilet tank fill valve.
Anyone done this or have any ideas?

Humidifier fill from float valve?


I was working on the same thing. Trying to find a float valve small enough to mount inside the plastic reservoir of this cheapo Holmes steam unit. Something like this might do the job, but I don't know what that float is made of.

This seems like a good idea, but I would never leave the house, because when I did, the float would stick and somehow make my house into an indoor pool.

I would like to see what you come up with though.

Good luck.
