Humidifier LONG Filter Core Wick Refill - Single
Which H2O humidifiers fit the long size?
Being the tallest model in the range, the H2O 400 fit these long cotton core wicks. As with the other wicks, you will still need to trim shorter to fit (easily done with scissors). It's really important when changing wicks in any humidifier, not to lose the small spring at the end of the wick cover. Without it your humidifier won't run properly.
This is for ONE long size filter core wick refill, which will last on average 3 months (see below about how to extend this, what to avoid that shortens how long they last, and what to look for to know when to replace them).
Each standard wick refill measures 17.8cm long x 8mm diameter. If you have the H2O 750ml or 1 litre UP, Milkbox, H2O Mini or H2O 500, the long wicks also fit all those models, but you will need to trim them shorter (always keep your old core to match the length when your new core arrives).
BEWARE when changing wicks that most humidifiers have a small spring inside the filter cover, that you HAVE to use or the wick won't push securely in place. It's very easy to change wicks - it's also very easy to lose that spring - just change your wick without turning the filter cover upside-down so the spring doesn't fall out and you'll be sweet.
How long does a humidifer filter core wick last?
It varies depending on use, but a core tends to last 1 to 6 months, on average it's recommended you check and replace your core every 3 months (4 times a year). Running in a dusty or smoky environment will mean your core needs replacing more often. Harder water with higher mineral content can also shorten the core life.
To extend the life of each core, keep surrounding surfaces wiped clean of dust and floor area vacuumed / swept clean. You can also soak the filter in vinegar (just the filter, not the whole humidifier, always take the core out to soak it), once a month to dissolve water deposits.
If you notice any mould or discolouration from dust / minerals etc, it's definitely time to change the filter. Continuing to use a dirty or blocked filter can end up with dirt, dust or minerals making their way in to the filter itself and damaging your humidifier beyond repair.
This is for ONE long humidifier replacement wick. If you want more than one just change the quantity to match. Some humidifiers need one wick, some need two.
