Parts for humidifier by Douglas Kern (Brighton Mi US)

The tube itself worked perfectly as expected. However, and I'll take blame myself but it would have been very helpful if you could include the connector and copper sleeve with the tube. I would have GLADLY paid more and since it's other than a standard size, it was somewhat difficult to find at the local hardware stores. It's still a great unit though, almost 25 years old!!

Just what I needed, my General Aire Humidifier is 22+ years old and the old tube started to show some Corrosion and then broke this year while changing evaporator pad and this replacement is what I needed lets see if I get another 22 years....also install new Orifice And Strainer Assembly.....
