The humidifier is designed the use a specific amount of water. Slowing it down can reduce its efficiency. It can also allow mineral deposits to build up faster.
If you must slow down the water. Simply close down the saddle valve slowly untill you reach your desired amount.
Good luck

Most humidifiers have a strainer on the inlet side of the solenoid valve, if this strainer is clogged up it will reduce the water flow to the humidifer. Usually sediment builds up in the strainer and all you need to do is remove it and clean it up and reinstall it.

GET NO FLOW. CAN FEEL THE SOLENOID GETTING POWER AND CLICK


I would suggest that you locate supply valve to humidifier and loosen compression nut on outlet side to see if you have water at that point. If you do shut valve off and disconnect supply line on incoming water line and make sure it is clean. Check for plugged screens or lime build up. Clean as needed. If you aren't getting any flow thru shut off valve then turn off water supply to the valve and replace it. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Humidifier Water antibaterial additive


Hello. Humidifier water tanks must be regularly disinfected to remove the presence of bacteria and reduce the risk of mold spores. Carefully remove the screw-on cap, fill with cool water and add a tablespoon of household bleach to the water. Replace the cap and set aside for 20 minutes. Once done, empty the water tank, rinse thoroughly with clear cool water, and wipe the outside with a soft damp cloth and you are good to go. Do this once per week. Regards, Joe
PS please rate my answer. thank you.

Aprilaire 700 using too much water-------


There is a small oriface that is installed next to the solenoid valve. It sounds like this oriface is missing. It reduces the water flow through the humidifier when it is working properly. You should be able to disassemble the solenoid fittings to check and see if the oriface is in the water line. For a "temporary" fix regulate the water pressure down by closing down on the saddle valve.
Good luck

Too much water running through to humidifier


With the Honeywell he220, you will use alot of water, trying to turn down the water will only reduce your amount of humidity in the home, you may be able to adjust it a little but you need to take the cover off and reduce the water flow a little at a time watching the water as it flows across the pad, you just have to make sure the humidifier pad is getting plenty of water across it, to little and you lose your humidification, hope that was helpful to ya, thanks for your question,
