Humidity Control for the Piano Tech
By John A. Tuttle

Hi All,  Don't hate me for this, but something Bruce Clark wrote

Don't forget to drink 6-8 glasses of water a day. :-)

Seriously, without our two humidifiers pumping 4 to 6 gallons of water
each day into the air, our humidity level can drop to 12% (and lower)
in the winter.  Then, five months later, the air conditioner takes out
3 to 5 gallons a day (I measured it) to keep the humidity down to
