Sears must have changed back to the original manufacturer because this filter is much better than the last filter I bought for my humidifier. The previous one practically fell apart in the humidifier. So far so good with this one. It is keeping its shape and functions well.
The filters this year are horrible. We buy the same ones every year, but this time they're different. They were floppy coming out of the box, and barely stand up on their own when dry. As soon as water hit them they turned into mush and floated around in the water. The ribs ripped off the strip of glue while trying to salvage them. They are now floating around my humidifier performing no function at all besides making my humidifier look like a clogged toilet bowl. They even caused a fight among family members blaming each other for purchasing the wrong filters or installing them incorrectly. They are the right model number, just not the quality they used to be. I'd give them negative stars if I could.
Nice to still be able to get exact replacement filters for humidifier bought many years ago! Good quality, decent price, quick delivery!
Tried to order 2 Filters, Had to make 2 orders with double the shipping cost.
