Our basement was smelling damp and basementy. I started using this and within a few hours I noticed an amazing change in the smell and also the feel. I don't think I realized quite how well a humidifier could work. And our basement is over 1000 square feet. This is a great investment!
I used it for 46 hours with not effect. The pool of water in the basement was not touched and the bucket contained maybe 3 cups of water. This is not a 70pint capacity unit. If you are concerned about noise this is definitely not the way to go. Wish it worked better.
The first unit I received did not work. It would not even turn on. I called the customer service line and was told a new unit would be shipped and I received a prepaid shipping label to return the defective unit. A couple days later I received a new working unit. It has performed flawlessly ever since. I don't know how much it removes per day since I have it dumping into my sump crock. The basement is much less humid and more comfortable. My only issue is the filter removal and replacement is awkward. Otherwise it is great.
I like this dehumidifier but it works so well that It fills after 8 hrs. I keep setting it at a lower humidity level but it still needs to be emptied 3 times a day so I just let it sit till I get a chance to empty it but as a result, it's getting a mildew build up in the water container. I think this would be a good unit to have if you have it set up to a direct drain but it would run constantly. My other dehumidifier keeps the other side of the basement free of humidity but has a knob where you can set it to dry or very dry. So it fills every 24 hrs. My basement doesn't smell musty so the new unit is kind of an over kill.
I've only been using the dehumidifier for about three weeks. It has been performing very well so far. Only negative is that I wish the storage bin were a little larger but that is a minor issue. I can ot use the continue drain option where I'm utilizing this product. The product has removed the dampness from my basement and is maintaining the humidity there at about 50% (which is about perfect).
This machine is so unbelievably quiet. I have have it over a month now. I actually have to walk up tot it to see if it is running. I haven't had any of the issue of spilling over. The hubby set it up so I am not sure how that went but he never said anything. Would highly recommend it
Runs well and is much quitter than the one we had first. The size is great for a 2000 square foot basement. I have two running just so I do not have to empty more than once a day. This one does last a full day compared to a smaller unit I purchased 4 years ago. I would buy again and recommend it.
I was looking for a large capacity dehumidifier for my basement to replace an extremely old hand-me-down. It runs quietly. It is easy to use out of the box. It is easy to empty. My only knock is that you can't set it for a certain level of humidity. I currently have it on continuous operation with a hose to a large trash can. So far, so good.
We are very happy with the product. It got right to work in our basement. This is one of two that we have because we have a 2,100 sq ft divided basement. The dehumidifier is relatively quite compared to our other one. It works great, fills up every 24 hrs which is what one wants and proves it is working well. Price is comparable to our other one which was purchased at Lowes. I liked the free delivery to the front door and not having to go out and get what I needed at store for the same price as I store price. Feel confident with buying this one.

has been running for about 7 months now. starting to have fan rattle. but other than that is working okay. i especially like that not have to restart after power failure feature. is under house in crawl space. needs run all year round and is drain connected to sump pump. the only think i not pleased with is the lack of warm air coming from it. the old one had warmer air discharge which helped heat the space.
