The best dehumidifier!
By 'Mihai Romero', Reviewed on 2020-11-30 10:47:21
Our basement is moldy, this dehumidifier is a lifeguard! It does a good job of reducing humidity. It is also very quiet compared to other dehumidifiers we have. I think this is important! I have connected the hose so that it empties itself. Definitely recommend it to anyone with water problems.
Suitable for family basement
By 'Henna Smith', Reviewed on 2020-11-23 13:51:51
Love this product. Easy to use and good noise level. Surprised at the amount and speed of water is pumped out of the basement air. I drain the drain into the sink near the basement and run it 24/7. We have recommended this unit to a friend and will buy it again.
Good result
By 'Ihsan Healy', Reviewed on 2020-11-16 10:39:05
This dehumidifier is the best, easy to understand instructions, and easy to operate. In the cold weather, we had a lot of condensation inside the single-pane window of the back bedroom, and it dripped down and started to grow mold on the wooden window frames. Can't say how long it can last, but it looks very good and it has a 5-year warranty. We set it to 40% humidity and really pump out the water in the air. The bedroom window in the back window is dry. No condensation can be seen in the morning.
Great dehumidifier. It is strongly recommended for large spaces.
By 'Harmony Fitzgerald', Reviewed on 2020-11-09 11:08:25
I live in southeastern Michigan and I just bought a house with a large basement (>2000 square feet) and it has a mold problem. I borrowed a dehumidifier from my sister and it worked well, so I bought one myself. At first, I installed the dehumidifier, connected the drain hose, and discharged it into a sewage pump. I am satisfied with this matter-it keeps my 2,200 square foot basement always at 40%-45% humidity. When there is no dehumidifier, I find that the humidity is around 70%-75%, which greatly exacerbates the mold problem-you will smell a big difference. Excellent dehumidification effect, especially when draining to the hose.
Very reliable product
By 'Samira Donaldson', Reviewed on 2020-11-02 10:35:06
This dehumidifier does a great job of keeping the excess moisture in the basement to a minimum! Actually, when my pump failed during heavy rain, I had a small "flood" all night, but when I woke up, the water on the floor was completely dry (the dirt was left behind), and My machine is still running and undamaged.
By 'Robbie Curran', Reviewed on 2020-10-26 10:48:58
Our basement was damaged by water and the musty smell was really frustrating, so we bought this dehumidifier and it worked very well! I would say that we have a moderately sized cement basement, this product can indeed solve the problem. There is no more peculiar smell or moisture in the air!
Great for me
By 'Avni Mcdermott', Reviewed on 2020-10-19 10:23:17
This fall, I did an attractive project in the crawl space. My humidity level is close to 90% and I use this dehumidifier to reduce it to 50%. I discharged the hose into the sewage pump. I am happy to use this dehumidifier for the encapsulated grab space. I recommend.
Powerful dehumidifier at a reasonable price
By 'Emmy Taylor', Reviewed on 2020-10-12 09:14:19
I bought this machine in the newly renovated basement and put a lot of debris in the basement. It rains a lot this year. I am afraid that the smell of the basement will smell like rotten wood. I am also worried that the things I store in the basement will be damaged due to excessive moisture. So I decided to buy a dehumidifier. I compared many dehumidifiers and proceeded. After commenting, I finally chose to buy this machine. It really absorbs a lot of water. Very good product, love it!
Keep the basement area dry
By 'Ellena Dorsey', Reviewed on 2020-10-05 09:22:55
First of all, this dehumidifier looks so stylish and modern. I like its overall simple design. I bought this dehumidifier in the residential area in the basement of the house. The product has been used for a week after delivery. The unit works effectively. As a comparison, I have another dehumidifier of another brand with similar dimensions, and when the device is turned on at the same time, not much water is collected. The noise level is acceptable. Therefore, I will definitely use this equipment in a larger area and keep the old equipment in a smaller room.
Great unit in wet basement
By 'Lewie Mann', Reviewed on 2020-09-28 09:02:16
This is a very good unit. Put it in my basement. There is no dehumidifier in the basement for more than a year and there are 2 leaking walls. So it is very humid, and it shows 83% when I set it. In 2 days, it dropped all the way to 45%. The feeling and smell are very different. I set it to drain to the floor drain, and I highly recommend this project. My basement is about 2,300 square feet.
