Make the new quilo water storage tank easier to clean. even using filtered water to begin with, the tank gets gross after a while and its a bit of a pain to clean.

Hi I'm using it in these days like humidifier and it's seams to work. I put in " low fan mode" with full thank and the results is that I got more humidity in my apartment. It need times but better than nothing :-)

Hi Arckal, In the current model there is no dedicated humidifier mode. You can use it as an humidifier by making sure the water tank is full and setting the fan on low, or using the sleep mode. Best,

What setting is used to set Quilo as humidifier?

Hope everyone got off to great start in 2018. Just wondering - how many of you are using the Quilo as a Humidifier in the winter? Any feedback?

Happy New Year everyone! Hi @Daniel - that is strange - but this crossfire does happen with remotes sometimes. Rest assured, we have nothing to do with Lasko.
Daniel O'Day
Review from Kickstarter
In the realm of the bizarre... I had an old Lasko brand space heater sitting right next to the new Quilo, and I'd forgotten that the Quilo was plugged in instead of the heater. I grabbed the remote for the Lasko, and was very confused when the Quilo turned on when I hit the remote power button. Turns out, all the buttons on the Lasko remote work to control the various functions of the Quilo. Bizarre coincidence, or is there a connection between your two companies?

The fan is not working. If I turn on, nothing is happening. If I switch on the cool mode, the water is being circulated but the fan doesn't rotate. Can you please help?

@John - Happy to hear that you're enjoying your Quilo in your man cave. In case you want another one you can get one on our website http://quilohome.com. The list price is $149, but for the KickStarter community we have a special discount code for $20 off - 'welovekickstarter' (valid only until September 30, 2017) @theNinja - Sorry to hear about your leakage issue - it could be a crack/ leakage in your water tank. I've sent you an email. @Spencer - we're sending you a new power cord. @Kevin - thanks for clarifying on the water leakage issue. We're going to be adding this to the instruction manual:
'Wait for 2-5 minutes before removing the Water Tank to allow any excess water in the Honeycomb Cooling Media to drip into the tank before removing it. After removing the tank, water from the Honeycomb may continue to drip and collect in the tank compartment. Simply wipe dry with a clean, dry cloth.'

@Quilo - I am loving my Quilo unit. I have a 2 story home. In Houston. Cooling our home is pretty expensive, and our AC is always just barely able to do it. On the really hot days, it can't keep up. So the upstairs gets super hot. My man-cave is upstairs in a spare bedroom. I sit in there to do gaming stuff or just to have "me" time away from the family. I used to sit in there naked just to not be soaked with sweat. Now with Quilo I can stay cool and keep my clothes on. Thanks for making an amazing and useful little gadget! I'm going to order some more, so let us know where and when we can order additional units.

@Kevin Shillito and @Quilo;
The water leaks no matter what. I keep the tank in most of the time, only fill when needed. Even when I take the tank out, maybe twice a week, there is water at the bottom of the unit (under the tank) as well as the rubber mat I have under the unit. I don't use the Quilo all that much so the need to refill is minimal, however the water at the bottom and on the mat seem to be much more than just me pulling it out too fast or too soon. Thank you for your insight though.

Properly out of the box, but what about after just a couple weeks use

@Quilo Home, ok thank you very much.

Review from Kickstarter
The power supply on my Quilo has stopped working. I tried calling support but no answer. Just by chance I let it ring a lot longer and finally got voicemail. Left a message requesting a replacement power supply. Also sent email to support@quilohome.com with shipping information. Quilo worked well and it a nice unit but disappointed the power supply died after a few weeks use. I even ordered a second unit but maybe not a good thing. My observation is the power supply runs hot. Possibly underrated for the task it needs to perform reliably. Hopefully Quilo Support will be following up soon.

Why work on the next version of Quilo? Was the one we received beta models?
Looks like many defects that should have been caught in testing. Maybe send us all the new, improved version.

Review from Kickstarter
@larry don't worry - we're arranging refunds/ replacements for everyone who's unit hasn't worked properly out of the box. I don't have a full customer support team and I'm trying to put a service team in place while traveling full time working on the next version of the quilo. Which is why I haven't been responsive all of last week. But we're now putting in place a team and will resolve all issues by next week (Sep 18-22). Apologies for the silence and delays. Will be back on track in a few days.

Mine did not work out of the box, it has no power. I called Quilo (2) times and filled out the form they sent me but no reply since then... Buyers Beware.. I guess ill start filing complaints everywhere, CC company Kick Starter, amazon.. BBB, Attorney Generals office..

Review from Kickstarter
What Kevin said is true which is why you also only have to pull it out a few inches to refill the entire tank in the refill circle. It also came with a filter for the refill circle.
Kevin Shillito
Review from Kickstarter
Hey Ninja, Is it leaking continuously while the unit is in operation, or is it leaking when you stop the unit and refill the water? I initially had a problem with drips when refilling immediately after I turned the unit off. By waiting a few minutes after powering down before refilling, I was able to stop these drips because the quilo apparently needs a little time for the water that had been circulating to flow back to the tank. Hope this helps.

Review from Kickstarter
Anyone have big problems with water either leaking or dripping onto the floor? I have carpet so it's soaking into it. Had to put a rubber mat under so it would not soak through anymore. Other than that, seems to be working ok. Not sure where the water is leaking from.

Can someone please post instructions? Mine was missing them and remote. In Florida, following Hurricane Irma using with a generator. Thanks!

Mine is is still working great. I recommend changing the water completely every once in a while and rinsing the bottom tray to avoid any mildew build up.

Review from Kickstarter
I have tried contacting the us support line which led to no one picking up the phone after say 20 or so rings so I decided to call again a different day. It then led me to JMATEK North America which seems to mainly do honeywell? Anyways I gave my contact information and was told that someone would contact me back and hasn't yet. I do notice my Quilo has began to develop other issues. Specially the pump working for maybe 1-2 seconds max and then turning red stating there is no water/pump issue according to the manual. I have since stopped using it and reverted back to a regular fan until I receive some reply back.

Hi. I have been applying for many times, but there is no answer. I was informed that by 08.23 there will be a delivery of a hair dryer. I have been referring many times. Why do not they give me an answer. I have not received any response or a hair dryer before. Thanks.

@Lisa Tesler Good idea with the ice pack. I will try mine and see if it's at least on par with ice. @Miguel Valdespino I definitely agree with the LED brightness. Difficult to sleep with the lights provide decent lighting to the room!

Review from Kickstarter
As with Muelletn, I'm getting really annoyed about the lack of service and poor communication to UK/EU backers of the project. The fact that no thought was given in advance to the need for different plugs to US models was very poor planning, but the lack of communication and continual unexplained delays is just unacceptable. Jul 15th we were told to expect deliveries by early August.
Aug 10th we were told shipments will start in a day or two. QuiloHome's last post on this page was on Aug 25th saying they were working on shipping out units during the next week - and still nothing. By the time any units arrive in the UK, they will be of no use whatsoever this year. It is even more annoying that we had to pay a premium for shipping. No suggestion however has been made of any compensation for all of these problems, despite me continually chasing. As with Muelletn, I am also regretting putting money into this project.

Review from Kickstarter
For the ice issue, I put some ice in the lower tank as well as the upper chamber to extend the maximum cooling time. My blue ice packs are too big for the upper chamber, but I'll look into finding a smaller one.
Miguel Valdespino
Review from Kickstarter
Feedback time! In terms of cooling, it works great. We've had a triple-digit heat wave for the last few days and this has helped a lot. Great work on the function. I like the louvers a lot. Even without the evaporative cooling it would be an excellent fan. My primary complaint is that many of your design decisions work directly against my primary reason for buying this - to cool me when I sleep. Right now I have four pieces of cardboard taped to the unit because you use really bright LED's on a curved display. I suggest a light control with three levels: Full, dim, completely dark (the lights would flash for a bit when you hit a control to show the new setting). This should also turn off the fill level light. When the timer turns off, having it beep is not useful when you are sleeping. When the lights are dim or off, please make the unit silent. The remote crosstalks with a remote from another brand of fan. This would not be a problem except that the other fan scrolls through fans speeds from fast to slow, and you go slow to fast.

The water tank does not feel stable when full. It sloshes if you don't move really slow. There's no good handle. It can be hard to put it in because the unit rolls back. If you are using both hands to not spill the water you don't have one to hold the back of the unit. I use it on a table so that it is the same height as my bed, and rolling back a few inches puts it in topple zone. I would prefer it without wheels or with a way to lock the wheels. I hope this helps you with your future designs.

Sorry take back the water comment. I mistook the min line for the max line and so it kept giving me low water error. But ice yes - melts fast. Good call on using an ice pack.
Tony Le
Review from Kickstarter
Agree with @Lisa - tried water and ice first time today because it's HOT here in SF and ice melted in about 5 minutes and I got the low water warning after about 20min running in high fan after filing it to max. Great feature but cold air didn't last long and wish ice and water lasted longer. But a much better fan than we've ever owned.

Review from Kickstarter
When will the Quio Fan be shipping? i do not receive it.
Lisa Tesler
Review from Kickstarter
I reduced the gurgling water noise by doing this: I inserted a small freezer pack in the ice compartment, on the lower shelf, leaning against the upper shelf, and then pulled up and turned the white plug/spout so that the water splashes against its underside and then flows down the freezer pack. (The gurgling noise was mostly due to the water spurting through the air and splashing against the shelf.) It's only slightly audible now. And hopefully the freezer pack will melt more slowly, too.
Lisa Tesler
Review from Kickstarter
I don't see much difference in the water flow when I pull up bs push down the white plug in the ice compartment. Should I see a difference? The ice plug spout turns--does a particular direction make any difference in the performance or life of that spout? There are two shelves in the ice compartment. Given that the spout is in the top shelf, and the drain is in the bottom one, does that mean I can fill both shelves with ice? My ice completely melted while I was writing this, so it doesn't seem to last long. In a future version, would adding more insulation to the whole thing make the ice last longer?

Any updates for EU backers? Another 7 days have gone by without any update for us. Delays can happen, but getting left in the dark like this makes me regret backing this project.
