Product Description

Effortlessly remove excess moisture from the air with this energy-efficient portable dehumidifier. Great for damp basements or any musty room of the house, the unit not only helps allergy sufferers breathe easier, it also helps prevent problems often caused by excess humidity--peeling paint, damaged wood, and mold growth. Durable rolling casters make it easy to move the lightweight dehumidifier from room to room, wherever it's needed most.

The dehumidifier quietly removes up to 70 pints of water from the air every 24 hours. When the water bucket has filled to capacity, the unit will automatically shut off and the "bucket full" indicator will light up. Water can be automatically emptied by attaching a standard garden hose (not included) to the continuous drainage port on the side of the dehumidifier. This will allow the unit to run continuously without having to empty the water bucket. The dehumidifier also provides a push-button electronic control panel for selecting one of three fan speeds, increasing or decreasing the room-humidity level, or setting the two- to four-hour timer, which turns the unit off automatically after the after the elapsed time.

Other highlights include an "on" indicator light, an automatic defrost function, low-temperature operation down to 40 degrees F, loss of power protection with auto restart, and a permanent washable filter. The unit not only provides exceptional performance and convenient features, it has also earned an Energy Star rating, which means it meets strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and U.S. Department of Energy. Energy Star products can help save up to a third on energy bills, as well as on greenhouse gas emissions. All of which means more comfortable indoor air without excess costs or impact on the environment. The 850-watt dehumidifier measures 11 by 15-1/3 by 23-5/8 inches and carries a one-year limited warranty.

My basement runs about 80% humidity all year round and stays about a constant 62 as well.I have had this unit running for a month and it has done everything I have asked of it.The basement is 1200 square foot and this dehumidifier has lowered the humidity to 55% which is where I have it set.I have it hosed to a drain and it is fairly loud on the high setting.The only negative I would note is the bucket seems a little flimsy if you are opting not to hose it to a drain.Actually it is the handle of the bucket that is suspect.Overall very happy with this product.

Got this unit for a great price from stacks and stacks! Great delivery time, well packaged for shipping. Unit works great so far, noise is not too bad, but it is a 70 pint, going to be louder than smaller units, as expected. I am running this in my utility room of an otherwise finished basement, so I am usually not in the same room with it trying to watch TV or listen to music.
I always seem to over-research things like this before buying, glad I did this time, perfectly happy with this unit and would definitely recommend the product and the seller!

To start, overall I am happy with this purchase.

Now for some clarifications and critiques.
- It is a 70 pint per day. That is 8.75 Gallons/day. The bucket is at most 3 gallons, probably closer to 2 gallons.
- It is only capable of doing 70 pints/day if the conditions are correct, i.e. temperature is ~68°F.
- It doesn't say anywhere how big of a room it can really manage.
- The humidity readout is in 5% increments.

Details about my basement:
- It is unheated and therefore close to 60°F
- It is ~1600 square feet.

Performance after 1 month:
- When I turned it on, it read that we had an 80% humidity. After running 24/7 (drain hose hooked up) for a month we are now at 60% humidity. It has not shut off yet(we have it set to shut off at 50%).

I ordered the DP1-70-03, but received the SG-DEH-70-1, which appears to be a newer model with very similar features. The received unit is rated for lower energy consumption at the same capacity, so no complaints.

After a couple of days of operation, I am revising this review down to 3 stars.

This is my second Soleus. The first was the CFM-40e 40 pint, which worked fine, but I sold it when we moved and now have purchased this larger model. This model addresses a couple of the weak points in the other model, but also shares a couple of weaknesses.

Positive:
1. Unit turns back on after power failure (improved vs. CFM40e)
2. Accepts a regular threaded hose connection (improved vs. CFM40e)
3. Fast operation - noticeably reduced humidity after just a couple of hours operation, probably due to the high fan capacity (also a weakness, the fan is loud)
4. Humidistat seems fairly accurate and shows target and current values (improved vs. CFM40e)

Weakness:
1. (revision: this original statement is not true, the fan does turn off, but see point 4) The fan does not turn off when the target humidity is reached (shared problem with CFM40e)
2. The fan on this model is MUCH louder than the 40pt model, even when set to low. The 40pt model was barely audible on low.
3. Timer does not cycle on/off time, but merely sets the amount of time until the unit turns off, then it stays off.
4. (revision: this point added after 2 days of operation) The unit turns off/on frequently (both fan and compressor) when the target humidity is reached.

The Soleus Air DP1-70 arrived in perfect condition via UPS. Packaging was intelligently designed and protected the unit well.

My old unit was all metal but now this is all plastic. However, everything fit well and it was up and operating in just a few minutes.
The controls are intuitive, smartly layed out with easy to read large digital numbers. Everything is easy to use and understand. The noise is relatively modest in "full thrust" mode and you can also control the fan speed to reduce noise even further. It makes a rushing air noise that is not objectionable at all nor does the sound carry into adjacent rooms.
The Soleus is truly impressive in its ability to remove moisture from the air rapidly. I checked the units humidity setting accuracy to a reference humidistat. The Soleus was almost spot on.

The unit is energy star rated, has automatic restart, and will shut off if water container is full. It is also cosmetically pleasing to look at. It has a retractable handle on top and casters to move it about easily. Other reviewers have stated it is reliable over time. I hope to enjoy it for years. Very smartly designed unit and I recommend it.

I have had several dehumifiers, but this is the quietest yet. I bought it because I already had a smaller one from the same manufacturer and loved it. This model is equally as good. Easy to operate, quiet, functional, looks good too. Worth the extra money, you get what you pay for.
