If you are using large amounts of water and it is not leaking anywhere than I would be inclined to think that your humidity indicator is not correct. Do you notice any differences since you have been using it,such as less static electricity,skin and hair not as dry as usual or house plants looking better if you have any. Also not knowing what area you live in I don't have any idea what your normal atmospheric temperature or humidity are. Other factors to consider is how well your house is insulated,number of doors and windows and how many times doors are opened. Without knowing these things your humidifier may be doing all it can. Hope this is of some help.Thank

Why ismy Essick humidifier registering over 20 on the humidity level. I have changed the filters several times using high end filters?? I also have wet the filters

Sorry to ask, for clarification is this a dehumidifier or a humidifier? Do you want to add water to your air or take water out of your air. A reading of 20 for a humidifier sounds pretty good to me. I didn't know there were filters on a humidifier, I thought most of the time you just filled the tank with distilled water, it got heated and vapor came out. I guess a filter to keep airborne bacteria from floating into the water tank would make some sense, maybe a water filter to pre-filter the water going into your humidifier, but I don't think any filter is your problem. If you are trying to remove water from your air, then a dehumidifier is needed and you just have to empty the tank when it's full.

Cant get float area put back together

It can be a pain in the ****! You have to take the long handle peice,clip it back to the front of the humidifier,right to the right front of the unit top corner you should see a spot that is where you clip that handle to,it goes on a certain way,I learned by trail and error to make it work.Then you must put the float in the circle holder there is a hole in the top of the lid where the float sticks into,you have to hold the float into that hole and make sure it stays in there or it wont work.I wish I had a picture to show you sorry best I could do.
