Topic: De-humidifiers and Liquid-filled Balls

This may well turn out to be the strangest posts of mine ever.

I live in a city that goes through summer months of high humidity. We therefore run a dehumidifier in our basement. Last summer, my SIL-X Implosion Balls (these are the ones semi-full of colored Silicon liquid) imploded. No, that was not meant as a pun. The balls became irreparably misshapen, as if the liquid interior was sucked out of them and the exterior shell was severely indented.

I am left to wonder if this was the result of our de-humidifier running during this period. Is the ball shell porous enough to be affected by the de-humidifier?

Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Weird, but good question. I have never heard of anything like this. Have you posed this question to the manufacturer? If your supposition is correct the manufacturer should include mention of this in any printed material they distribute with their product.
