When air o swiss changed their silver stick to the hydro stick, I believe it was because the price of silver had gone up. It's all about releasing silver atoms into the water to keep bacteria from growing. The way the original stick was made looked to do this job. The white plastic one that replaced it, not so much. I started to look for other products and found this one. I believe this one actually has silver in it. Silver has great anti-microbial properties and keep the growth of bacteria down. We'll see if this does the job. And no, putting a silver dollar in the water will do nothing but keep bacteria from growing on the dollar. I actually took the metal rod with mesh out of the plastic holder so it fits into the indentation next to where the original silver stick went. The cube has small tab, that when pressed in the cube splits in half. No need for the plastic block. Also I see that they are putting a carbon filled disk in with the new humidifiers. I see NO use for this as...
I ran our AIr O Swiss Air Washer for a month before submitting that I needed one of these. During that month, the air washer pulled the dust & allergens out of the air & into the water; but then without the Silver Cube, scum started to accumulate in the water dish. Then I purchased the Silver Cube and installed it over the past couple of months and only the small flocculated dirt particles are present during the monthly cleanouts- hardly any of the bacteria scum that was present without the silver. I wouldn't have actually been a believer, had I not conducted the 'experiment' myself; but I saw the difference of results over three months- I'd rather have saved the $25 myself. So there is your unbiased feedback.
I have 3 identical air o swiss humidifiers. After lugging home 45 gallons of distilled water per week for 3 months in this brutal winter, I couldn't take it anymore and performed the following experiment: all 3 were cleaned, sanitized, and filled with tap water from our well. I placed the silver stick in tank 1, a 5 dollar Protec cartridge from the drugstore in tank 2, and nothing in tank 3. In 5 days, crud was beginning to grow in the base of the tank containing the silver stick. The other two were clean. Within a week the tank containing the silver stick was sour, the exit tube slimy, and the entire assembly needed a thorough cleaning. The other two were still clean! Protec was the clear winner here at keeping the tank and base clean for 3 weeks, even with well water. This expensive silver stick seems to encourage rather than inhibit microbial growth and is worse than using nothing at all. I would not recommend.
