I mean, it works.

We bought this contraption because the previous owners of our house decided to route the dryer vent 40-50 feet around the patio. (You're only supposed to let vents run like 20-25 feet without additional pumping.) We needed a quick fix to stave off having a new duct professionally installed.

Enter, Ace Lint Trap Kit. What used to take 3 drying cycles now takes less than 1.

Downsides:
1) Included hose is flimsy and short. I replaced mine with a much higher grade flexible aluminum duct from HDepot.
2) If you're going to do some serious drying (i.e. multiple loads back to back).. THE ROOM WILL GET SERIOUSLY HUMID AND THERE WILL BE CONDENSATION. Luckily I have windows and doors and a ceiling fan nearby that resolve these issues. If you don't have adequate ventilation.. THINK TWICE.

We live in the desert of New Mexico, where the indoor air is incredibly dry, especially in winter. Using the indoor dryer vent adds healthful moisture to the indoor air, as well as plenty of heat in the winter. Product works fairly well; we use a long flexible vent duct to put the vent near the living area where the heat and humidity is needed. Needs weekly cleaning and water refill.

I was hoping to keep a little warm moist air in the house with this product and it does that. The design could be a little better because it doesn't keep all the lint in it. When I turn the dryer on, it blows all over (even tho it has plenty of water in it) There is also a little plastic insert in the middle that will not stay in place. It does trap a lot of lint in the water (which makes me wonder when I have the dryer hooked to the outside line where all that goes!! That is probably why the outdoor vent cover is stuck open so often!) Again, I think it is a great concept, it just needs a little fine tunimg.

Background:
We recently moved into an older two-story home (circa 1965) with its own laundry room on the first floor. The problem however is that the dryer vents through the wall and into the 2nd floor attic. Current building codes no longer allow for dryer venting into the attic and compounding our concern is the fact the vent pipe is smaller than the standard 4" (looks to be maybe 3"). The vent pipe is also full of decades of lint. Even if we paid to have the vent pipe cleaned, we are not fans of venting lint, heat and humidity into our attic. Seems it would be a fire hazard, a mold hazard, and be harder on our electric dryer. I did try to dry a single load and after 2 complete cycles, the clothes were still not dry.

Solution:
We need to have the dryer revented to a first floor exterior wall. However, that is not going to be cheap - due to location of the laundry room and the rock exterior of the house. Until we decide to incur such an expense, we decided to give this interior dryer vent contraption a try.

We purchased our unit from a local ACE Hardware.

Observations:
Installation was pretty straight forward - take the flexible dryer vent from your dryer and attach it to the interior vent (after adding water), and use your dryer as usual.

Immediately we noticed that the unit was venting a lot of heat and humidity into the room. In a large room it may not be an issue, but our laundry room is very small and water immediately began to form on the walls, appliances, cabinets and windows. The room quickly resembled a sauna. We feared mold issues, rust and possible water damage with prolonged use. Fortunately our laundry room has a window.

Our dryer was vented through the ceiling of our 2 story house. Needless to say there was not enough power to blow out all of the lint and it would therefore clog. It took 3-4 cycles to dry towels. Now they dry in one cycle.

I did not give it a five because I did not realize you have to keep water in the recepticle to keep the lint from blowing out all over the place. And in our humid climate I do not want to produce mold in the wet lint. We really have to keep an eye on it to clean it out and keep it filled with water.

Came quickly and was easy to install. Would have given it 5 stars except the plastic is terribly thin and I am sure will not last for years like the one my parents had.
