The main issue I have is that the valve seems to have no pressure control, again, unlike the part I replaced. With my old solenoid, the water valve leading off from my water heater was opened to full, and I never noticed unusual water pressure in the humidifier. With this valve, when I opened the water valve from my water heater and the humidifier kicked in, there was so much water gushing into the humidifier that the humidifier couldn't contain it, and it was leaking all over the place, in addition to the substantial stream of water emptying from the drain pipe. In order to control the water pressure, I had to practically shut the water valve leading from my water heater.
Bottom line: it works, and given that humidity in my house had fallen to 6%, I needed something sooner. However, if the Honeywell replacement part had been in stock, I would've ordered it instead.
* Wrench (for fittings)
* Screw Driver (to remove old solenoid and attach new one to humidifier)
* Wire Stripper (to strip the sheathing off the wires on the new solenoid)
* Plumbers Tape / Silicon Tape (to ensure leak free connections)
This solenoid has good water flow, the fittings are universal, and it doesn't make much noise when it turns on and off. When installing I suggest you put plumbers tape on the copper connectors (should be done on any water connection) to ensure you don't have a leak. Also, check for leaks after install (dry off all connections, wait an hour or two, then check). The solenoid can be reversed in the bracket if you have a humidifier with the water coming in on the right side vs. the left side (hold it in place by hand before doing this to check that it is needed).Read more ›
Even with the additional parts this was a much cheaper option than the Honeywell replacement part, so if it lasts a reasonable amount of time it's still a good deal.
The unit looks nothing like the product photo. The product photo looks more like my Honeywell unit. Not that I care on looks but the new unit does bolt right to the same area with no issues as the Honeywell unit did.
You do get a lot of fittings, so this should work for most Humidifiers.
