Re: Chlorine added to a dehumidifier
NOT the best suggestion Ive herd. 1st Chlorine is very corrosive to copper and aluminum. 2 In strong concentrations like your describing it is unhealthy. Usually 1 or 2 teaspoons per quart is plenty to sanitize the air and wont cause you health problems. And If you use more than this it needs to be followed by a manual rinse and wash out.

Dehumidifier? Sounds like a warning of some sort. A humidifier does a simple job, removing moisture from the air. If yours is not set up to drain, it could have a full holding tank. Empty it out and give it a rinse and it should be good. Drop a couple drops of chlorine bleach in it to keep down the mold growth.
If it isn't a full tank, it could be an air filter that needs cleaning or replacing. Often these things are programmed in and needs to be cleared. Clean and or replace any and all air filters and look for a reset button.
Make sure you unplug the unit first. there should be screws at the base, in the back, or underneath the humidifier. Once you remove all the screws the cover should come off as one big piece. Careful when removing the cover, however, as there may be ground wires attached to it . Usually if you vacuum out the inside godd and around the copils that may help with performance. You can also buy a special acid that you can spray on and rinse off with water that removes alot of residue.
Also, Don't forget to pull the plug, shut the water valve and drain the unit. A unit with a water reservoir should be drained and cleaned with white vinegar, a mix of one part chlorine bleach to eight parts water or muriatic acid. Mist-type humidifiers also require regular cleaning to remove mineral deposits.
One thing that I have had good results with on controling mold and bacterial build up is to add a couple of ounces of chlorine bleach every month. You can purchase commercial products to do the same thing at most hvac supply stores. They do smell much better but are not cheap. Hope this helps you. Thanks
This one is easy...
You simply fill your pool to the normal level which is at the top of the skimmer.
Now apply the "Shock" treatment to begin clearing the water.
With the pool full, attach the hose for back flushing to the filter 'Outlet" or discharge side and then move the selector handle to the "backwash" position and turn the pump on. It will begin discharging water out of the hose. Run it this way until it begins sucking air.
You have now "backwashed" your filter.
Fill the pool back to the normal level and finish treating water to get the Ph and Chlorine right.
