Cloudy looking water

I just bought a rainmate, and its been running for a few hours now, and the water in the basin looks cloudy. I was wondering if thats normal, is it just the particles and stuff it cleans from the air? How often should it be cleaned? Is this normal, for the water to be cloudy looking?

Does it do this when you DON'T add any of the fragrance oils???? If so, it's yuck from the air. BUT, the fragrance oils are OIL and they don't mix with water, so as it swirls it tries to emulsify the oils into the water and that causes it to become cloudy.
I would still clean it at least every other day....every day would be preferable....especially if you live somewhere that mold flourishes like I do (Central Texas)

If you do not like the cloudy water when you add the water based fragrance you need to try adding some DiteClear solution. Take a look at this demonstration video on website.

The water is supposed to get cloudy as the dirt from the air is pulled into it. They suggest to change the water everyday, especially if it gets cloudy quickly.

Is rainmate good for sinus problems


If you are having issues associated with dry sinus, and it is cold where you are located (with heating unit running), then yes, a humidifier will increase the relative humidity of the air and possibly decrease the issues you have with dry sinus, regardless of manufacturer.
You need to look for a humidifier that provides for a decent humidification rate, in terms of gallons per hour. The higher, the better. And, with that, you want a decent water tank storage amount, or you will be refilling all the time (the smaller the tank, the more often you have to refill.).
Also look for a humidity control, but don't pay a lot for it. The more humid the air, the harder it is for more water to evaporate into it. You would really like around 50%-60% RH in your home.

How much water should i use


I run mine day and night while home and clean and re-fill it every morning. I also use one of the room odor eliminators in my Rainmate. Fill the water one inch above the line about an inch off the bottom of the water container.

How much water to put in rainbow rainbow and should it blow out air


Fill the water in the basin to the top of the peg in the middle of the basin. (a little over an inch in the 2 quart basin) The Rainbow blows out air just like any other vacuum cleaner does throught the exhaust port. It will blow out there while the vacuum is running if the exhaust port cover is missing. Otherwise, with cover in place, it will blow out air all around the mid section of the canister while it is running.

I was just wondering if the fragrances contain oil in them?


You simply remove the spindle and wash it out, and the spin wheel too if ot gets a build up. I use an antiseptic sort of smelling scent in mine and it helps capture dust. That is part of the build uop on the spindle. Simply turn it on the spin wheel and remove it and then wash it under hot water and let the hot water course through the spindle to clean it out.

I just set up my new rainmate in my son's room with the eucalyptus scent (he has a cold/cough), and I needed to know how safe is it to leave the unit running overnight, and how long does it take for the...


Hey im a dealer for Rainbow. RockyNR1 is correct but let me just add that you can fill it to over the line if you want as long as the 'misting' still happens, be careful that the bowl is not near the edge of the surface as the spinning water might make it fall off the side. How long the water lasts is also very dependent on how large the room is that its in. Lastly you should be able to leave it run for 24/7

Rainmate question


Hey im a dealer for Rainbow. RockyNR1 is correct but let me just add that you can fill it to over the line if you want as long as the 'misting' still happens, be careful not to place the machine too close to the edge of whatever it's on as it may fall off. The rainmate can be ran 24/7 (mine does :D)as a side note the only upkeep it should need (other than the water of course) is check the little hole on the bottem of the spinner. if that is ever clogged just punch it though with a toothpick.

Got Rainmate yesterday and either my house is REALLY clean or it isn't working


i had the same problem. The goo pulled from the air gums up the small orifice atthe bottom of the stem that sticks down into the water. If the water cannot be pulled up into the stem and expelled out towards the bowl at high speed, it cannot work. Take the upper, motor half off, unplug it hold the plate with one hand and twist the stem 1/4 turn and it comes right off. Clean the crud (yes, its your own skin cells) and the hole with warm water and soap. put it back together and refill with water and it works like new. this is now monthly maintenance for me

Remove the tip by twisting 1/2 turn and it will come off! use a Q-tip and clean it out! Replace and should work just fine!!! From time to time it gets gummed up!
