Q: Why does the picture show there are 2 filters in the box, but the description says one.

submitted by tnoble - 4 years ago
  • A: The 2 in the upper right corner is for the model # WF2. The picture of the box shows 1 filter on the lower corner. The description of the item is correct.

    submitted byGGRed - 4 years ago
  • A: We will be happy to clear up the confusion. There is only one filter in the box and in the picture. The model of the filter is the WF2, which may have caused the confusion. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact our consumer relations team by emailing us at SocialSupport@HelenofTroy.com. Thank you.

  • A: As of 12/12/20 the picture still shows quantity 2 in the upper right corner. When I got to the store the quantity in the box was only 1. Just a tad deceptive I think.

Q: Is this product safe to run in humidifier for a 2 year old?

submitted by Annonymous - 5 years ago
  • A: I've used it in a humidifier for my 5 and 3 year olds with no issues. It will quickly start to discolor and get crusty though so I make sure to rotate the filter with every new fill of the water tank. It also helps to rinse it off every now and then as well.

    submitted bySteve G - 5 years ago
  • A: Thank you for your inquiry. This is safe for use in a room with a 2 year old. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to contact our consumer relations team by emailing us at SocialSupport@HelenofTroy.com. Thank you.

I have a humidifier that I purchased within the last year. It hadn't been used as much which is why it took me a while to look into buying a new filter. This filter does not fit the humidifier I have even though a lot of the questions asked and answered stated that this was the one I needed. Nope...they're wrong.

Works, barely for VE400

2 out of 5 stars
ssother - 9 months ago
I saw shirl19's review and wanted to review too, because I had almost the same experience. The Vicks VE400 I bought last year came with a PWF2 filter. It came time to replace and I have not been able to find the PWF2 ANYWHERE. Some filters online are listed as being "PWF2/WF2" but the WF2 is NOT the same size. With some shimmying and wedging, the WF2 will go into the tank and the humidifier can technically function. But I don't think it runs as well and the filter has worn out fast because it is too big. The PWF2 is smaller and more flexible.

This doesn't sound right. We'd like to look further into this. Please note, we do recommend to wet the filter in cool water prior to operating the humidifier. For additional assistance, please email us at SocialSupport@helenoftroy.com.

Tight fit for the VEV400 humidifier

shirl19 - 9 months ago, Verified purchaser
Tight fit for the VEV400 humidifier. It says to use PWF2 filters, but I couldn’t find them anywhere. I contacted Vicks and they said to use these filters. To make them fit, you have to soak them in water first. Even then, you can tell they’re a bit too big. I’m still annoyed I bought a humidifier and they don’t even make the correct size filters.

The last 2 years I forgot to order these so I had to go with other brands. Neither did the job that ProTech does. ProTech does a great job of bringing water to the top of the filter. It is long lasting compaired to other filters that I have used.

I have used two of these for a large-room Honeywell humidifier. The anti-mold, etc. feature lasts exactly one month where other filters I've used can generally last longer or can be bleached & reused. This one really can't handle more than a month.

Not sure if my Vicks humidifier is junk or this filter but mine started to get crusty after a couple uses and noticed the water level never changes so humidifier not working.
1 reply from Manufacturer Tech Support team - 2 years ago
The filter will get crusty as it absorbs minerals from your water. The higher the mineral concentration, the sooner it will become encrusted. Please reach out to our support team at SocialSupport@helenoftroy.com and we will be happy to help make this right for you. Thank you.
