The Aprilaire-brand Model 400 automatic humidifier uses a patented water-delivery system that includes a small float chamber, electronic water-level sensors and a wicking water panel. The use of the float chamber eliminates the need for a reservoir. The wicking panel allows almost 100% of the water in the unit to be used in the evaporation process, eliminating almost all standing water.
