I saw this instructable by pro-mpilchfamily a great idea. I needed one for my daughter, but I wanted to make it child friendly, add a little pizazz if you will. This is basicly a modification of the one I saw, the design concept belongs to PRO- MPILCHFAMILY, I just made a few changes to suit our needs. My hats off to you "Thanks for sharing".

Step 1: Materials

  • Materials you will need, this is a very easy project, about 2hr to complete. a plastic container, two sponges, a low voltage fan 12 or 24 volt, a led mist / fog maker, a pc. of aluminum, screws, a wall power supply for fan, 45 deg. vac. attachment
<p>Do these ultrasonic 24V devices also work on 12V? Because the reason I didn't buy one yet is the fact that 12V adapters are easy to find, but 24V is a lot harder and I don't like spending a lot on this. </p>
Nicely done! I like how you use 1 sponge to help control the flow of the water out of the bottle. <br><br>But what happens when you start getting mold buildup on the sponges? There are 3 reasons why i went with a regular Humidifier filter with mine. For one the filter is easily changed out cause eventually you will get mold buildup. Secondly the filter isn't as dense as a sponge allowing more air to flow through and a better transference of the moisture into the air. Third the filter does actually filter any minerals out of the tap water. But with the mist fogger you really don't need the sponge on the air intake side. The fogger is putting all the moisture into the air.
Thanks for the comment, you are very right about the mold buildup, the main reason I used sponges is it was the only thing on hand at the time. the filter you used is much better, I just didnt have correct materials. I needed it asap my daughter was sick and I just compromised with some household goods. And the intake sponge was used to kind of cut down on dust or debris, sponges were not made to filter. So I thought that if I used two of them it would help. I did eventually change the intake and output sponges to filters.When my daughter was finshed with it I dried it out real well and packed it in a box for storage, or till someone needs it again. Anyway this was a very inexpensive build, and something good to have around. My hats off to you for sharing, and my daughter thanks you. Thanks
