I noticed a small puddle of water on the floor under our April Air 600 humidifier. It was installed 10 years ago - we had our HVAC systems replaced last year, but since the April Air 600 was still working fine, our HVAC company did not recommend replacement.
I turned off the water supply right away ....
The inside of the return plenum was not wet .... but I can see signs of water residue (white dust and white water spots) around both the inside of the return and the outside of the return (reminds me of what a car looks like after washing it and forgetting to dry it ....)
Water valve is not leaking as that is located on the side of the humidifier.
My water panel was replaced 2 years ago. I should have replaced it this season (I asked the HVAC company to replace it when they performed other routine services this past fall, but they forgot about that request .... and I forgot about it as well.)
There is pink stuff in the drain and the panel was covered with a pink film of "stuff" as well - looks like the mold you see in a shower that has not been cleaned in a while ...
On the April Air 600 bypass systems, if the panel gets "gunked up," will it not drain properly? We are on well water and the panel is fed with pre-treatment system cold water. Our water is acid neutralized and softened.
What service should I have our HVAC company perform on it besides the panel replacement and cleaning? It is 10 years old - are there parts they should be replacing that wear out and would cause it to leak internally?
