The most likely is there is dirt in the water. Try filtered water. This is a very common issue, not serious, just annoying.
If you were to fill a swimming pool or hot tub and see how cloudy the water is, you may be shocked at how dirty water actually is..... fortunately, not a health issue.

Air separator on pump is dripping is separator bad


probably not
it's purpose is to separate water from the air before that water gets to the components using the air
water in the air ( humidity, moisture or water vapor) is everywhere and air under compression releases that moisture as water which is collected by the separator for removal either by an auto drain valve or drain tap

How to stop humidifier from spitting out water


Humidifiers, depending on brand will spit out a little water as that is the Idea to get moisture into the air, but you can try not filing it so full, this one is steam so I would look into owners manual as to how to clean it , you may find that it has collected calcium deposits not allowing it to vaporize the water properly.

Water dripping from exhaust


Most of the time water dripping is normal. The catalytic converter "converts" exhaust gases into water vapor.
The exhaust system also collects moisture when the engine is off.
It depends on how much water and when.
Are you adding coolant to the radiator ?

Water running from under fridge. all water lines off


Condensate pan is gunked up and no where for condensate to collect. Clean the pan on top of the compressor and make sure there is no gunk or dirt collected there.

Dirt in the water tank.


Its from the dust in the air.
It collects on the wet surface inside the humidifier and drains down.
A better air filter on your AC system would help reduce that, what type of filter are you currently using?

My vaporizer is making a spitting sound -


No salt, unless you had 0 steam - to stop water spit, throughly clean the water tank, just as clean as new. It will work like new if the tank is as clean as new! I dont know where the small particles of dirt come from, but trust me, I just went thru this with mine, it's got dirt in it!

Dirt/Collection Tank Bissell Little Green


I had the same problem, so I took out the black stopper, and soaked the whole thing in bleach water for about an hour, then I took a hand full of " aquarium " rocks and put them inside the tank, and shook them inside using a bit of the same water and then got rid of the rocks,( the rocks worked as an scrubber ) .... it worked pretty good

Water dripping outside the collector


I think that there is a 90 degree bend in the outlet on the bottom right front side of the collection tray that gets pluged with dirt, line etc. You can see this when you remove the collection container from the unit. I used a small piece of wire to clean out the hole and now the water goes into the tank and not onto the floor.

Vicks caporiser is spitting water instead of steam


Clean the unti - and do not add salt. I live in a major hard water city...and was amazed at how much dirt the tank collected. I tried adding salt to to stop the spitting, which did make a lot more steam, but did NOT stop teh water spit. I also noticed, with salt added, water in tank would only last 4-6 hours, not the 18-24 hours it should. I just figured it out, and now mine works great again, and does not spit. I cleaned the water tank throughly, several rinses, then wiped out entire inside. If you want it to work like new, you have to keep your tank as clean as new. I am going to start filtering my water that I put in with a double pantyhose I made simply so there no more dirt ~ a clean tank will fix the problem, it did mine :)

Cleaning the vent


Hello,

One trick is to put a Pyrex bowl of water and let that boil for a few minutes or so. This gives the water vapors a chance to collect and exhaust dirt and dust from the vent passage way.
