Ask The Expert: Treating humidifier water
04/01/2004 
 
Question:

Q: I am looking for an in-home water treatment system to be used for medical equipment (sleep apnea humidifer). I am considering RO with UV, but I am not knowledgeable enough to evaluate the manufacturer claims. Can you recommend a cost effective system for that purpose? Thanks.

Answer: 

A: To pretreat water for a humidifier, normally, all that's required is reverse osmosis. To get a list of reputable manufacturers, I suggest you contact the Water Quality Association at (630) 505-0160 or check its website which includes a "Member Locator" function that will allow you to find a local dealer by zip code. You probably only require a point-of-use RO unit, and should have no problem finding one that meets your requirements. We hope that helps.
