Question about Aprilaire 700 Humidifier
Download a copy of the Owner's Manual if you don't have one. Follow the instructions on page 5 to determine the RH in your house. A purchased gauge is a good idea only if you buy a Very good one ( $50 + ) since measuring RH is difficult at best. Your unit is turning on only when it's just above the RH in the house or where the sensor says it should based upon the outside air temp. Make sure that sensor is not near another air outlet or covered with snow, ice or any kind of obstruction to not allow it to give an accurate reading of the outside air temp. Also make sure its not resting against a warmer or colder than air surface. The outlet line from your solenoid has a blue orifice restrictor in it or should have. See page 10. This will only allow a VERY small mount of water through it even at 65 psig. Yours sounds excessive and I can't imagine that you don't have water running all over the place if its discharging that much. About a glass full every 3-4 minutes would be a lot. Make sure the orifice restrictor is there as well as the strainer in the inlet. The owners manual will tell you not to turn the flow down so I wouldn't do that if you have all the other factory components in place. Good luck,

I suggest that you buy a hunidity gauge from Home depot. The one that I bought gives you both Temp. and hunidity and only costs a few bucks.
I am not sure but if you have an outside temperature sensor it may be to do with that as the temp may not be low enough to allow water flow before you reach the higher settings.
