My Dampp Chaser Pad Treatment is running low, and I am interested in trying cheaper alternatives to the OEM treatment. I heard that they are essentially just Lysol. Can I use Lysol (or a dilution of Lysol) in place of this treatment? What are some *safe* alternatives to this OEM treatment?

So it is a little pricey, mineral deposits build up at different rates determined by water quality in each area, some clients over the years have bought a gallon? container of generic humidifier treatment from Sears are they still around? this liquid is designed for cabinet style room humidifiers, those who have used it in their Dampp Chasers sssshhh report no adverse effects!!, Dampp Chaser does say that it voids any warranty if other treatments are used.

How much are you paying for a bottle of Dampp-Chaser Pad Treatment? It shouldn't be very expensive, and a bottle should last quite a while.

Do NOT, and I repeat...do NOT use generic humidifier treatment intended for room humidifiers. I have had customers do just that, and it ruined the heating element in the humidifier tank, by eating right through it. And yes, it does void the warranty.

And don't use Lysol, either!
