Our Carrier whole house humidifier seems to be working

Customer Question

Our Carrier whole house humidifier seems to be working properly as far as water on/off at right time and the flow seems to be OK. Our problem is the 6" pipe that supplies air to the humidifier gets an excess amount of water inside it. We have replaced it once and will probably need to replace it after the heating season. Can you offer any suggestions as to why this is happening?
JA: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?
Customer: Our filter was replaced during our normal HVAC checkup in August and the thermostat is set at 15
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: We usually do but can hire it our if needed
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Other than replace the 6" duck again, do you have any suggestions why this is happening?

Is the humidifier itself on the return air and the 6 " leads to the supply air?

Or is your humidifier on the supply?
