It taps into the soft water, though they can also be used without a water softener according to the installers. It has a $90 filter that's supposed to be changed once a year, but Sahara told us we'll likely get 2-3 years out of it since we're using soft water.

I have several valuable solid wood acoustic guitars that could be destroyed by long term exposure to the (often) single digit humidity in LV. I keep them in a dedicated room in my house and run an Aircare M1201 Whole House evaporative humidifier ($125 on Amazon) to maintain the room at 45% RH. Works great, never seen a scorpion or any other bug. I fill it with filtered water from the kitchen RO filter to increase the life of the wick. For dry nasal passages, I use the q-tip & Vaseline trick mentioned earlier (don’t overdo it, just a dab). I used to get nosebleeds from the dryness, now that does not happen.

Anyway my point is im deathly afraid of seeing a scorpion in my house. I haven't yet but worried the moisture will attract them or even roaches. Also afraid of but being from florida im used to those. So i was wondering if anyone around here uses humidifiers, have u seen scorpions in your home due to the moisture? Im just scared of buying one and seeing those things all of a sudden. *shudder* thanks in advance if anyone can offer some reassurance to this nervous desert newbie
