Hard or soft water, any concerns?

Monday, March 26, 2012 by Aprilaire Team

Consumer question:
 I have a model 600 Aprilaire humidifier and I didn't see it listed in the FAQ's. Will operation of the humidifier while the water softener is going through it's cycle (backflushing,rinsing, brining) cause problems with either?
Aprilaires' response:

Thank you for your email regarding your model 600M Aprilaire humidifier. All of our Aprilaire humidifiers will function with hot, cold, soft or hard water. The water softener going through it's cycle (backflushing,rinsing, brining) will no affect on the operation of the model 600. The two can operate together or independent of each other.

Constant dust in house. Had ducts cleaned twice. Contacted furnace installer. He said it was a breakdown of the media that was causing the dust. We have softened water, and he said that was the cause. Took the media out of both furnaces and the dust is not so bad.It looks like drywall dust.
