I used the bucket for about 2 weeks to try it out and then I switched to the continuous drain tube which I connected a piece of clear vinyl tube (1 1/4 inch outer dia, 1 inch inner dia) from Home Depot which I connected to a "T" connector that I installed on my A/C condensation line that runs outside. Since it is only gravity drain (no pump) I had to place my dehumidifier above the drain connection. I could have used a short piece of water hose but I like the clear tube so I can see that the water is flowing so I can check to make sure it is working. See pictures.
- quiet operation. Only hear fan, compressor makes hardly any noise at all.
- attractive design
- Terrible engineering. The humidity sensor must be placed in the reservoir, because as soon as the fan clicks off, the humidity readout immediately starts climbing quickly. I have mine set to 50%. This causes the unit to run until it reaches 45%, then it will click of, and remain off until it reaches 55%. The poor sensor placement in the design makes the unit think it is 55% when it truly isn't. This has been determined by placing hygrometers around the room and seeing that the dehumidifier is always running up like crazy. So it will click off at 45, then 10 min later it thinks its 55, the unit will click on, and immediately when the air flow is resumed, the sensor sees that its not as high as it thought, and you'll see the readout drop quickly back down.
So the unit is constantly cycling on and off. This unit could actually use a ton less energy if the sensor was placed in a location to get more accurate readings (maybe in a isolated chamber with vents directly outside of the unit, instead of INside the unit where all the water is collecting?)
Very frustrating that you can't trust the unit manage itself efficiently. I'm tempted to a some kind of humidity switch to operate it more efficiently myself.
The more I think about this design flaw, the more frustrated I get. Giving only 2 stars now (down from the original 3). Also adding another photo showing 51% on hygrometer and 72% (!!) on the dehumidifier.
I bought a small USB powered fan and hung it off the back and aimed at at the top-left part of the intake area... this allowed for better air flow over the humidity sensor and resulted in a more accurate reading. This cut down on over-all energy usage quite a bit as it prevented the unit from cycling on/off for no need. Check out the newest photo to see how the fan is used.
First, this unit is installed in the basement of a vacation home in TN. I didn't think I'd have a moisture issue given where the house is built, but after several months of no occupancy, there was visible green dust-like mold on everything in the basement, and there was a very musty smell.
After installing and running this unit for 4 straight days, I dumped about 25 gallons of water (bucket by bucket), and the musty smell completely went away. The air is noticeably drier (to the point I think I need chapstick).
Knowing that the unit would be running unattended for months at a time, I installed the drain hose and verified that it was working just fine. I also ran the power cord through a z-wave appliance switch so I could remotely turn the unit on and off. As an added benefit, the appliance switch also has a power meter (think Kill-a-watt) feature that reports real-time power consumption.
After the initial continuous operation, I switched to 50% on the humidstat. Feeling is was overly dry, I incrementally worked my way to 70%. I did not notice any significant difference in the cycling frequency or duration on any of the settings. It seems to run (fan and compressor) for about 3 minutes. Then fan only for about 3 more minutes. Then completely off for about 10 minutes... At which point it repeats. It'll do this whether it has been running for a week, or it's been off for 5 days.
So, I set up my z-wave script to have the unit come on for 24 hours every Monday. I would have thought that after being off for a week, it would run continuously for several hours to dry out the air, but no, it's still only running for 3-minute intervals.
Ultimately, I don't really care about the accuracy, precision or repeatability of the humidistat since I can remotely schedule the run time.
As for power consumption, I've attached a couple of graphs that show actual consumption and run time. Since the house is vacant, it's baseline load is about 9kWH per day. When the unit is on for 24 hours (cycling as described above), the additional consumption is about 2.5kWH per day. My electricity cost is about 10 cents per kWH. Thus, 30 cents per day.
Leaving it running 24/7 controlled only by its internal humidistat would run about $91 annually ($0.25 x 7 days/week x 52 weeks). With only one day per week, that comes out to $13/year - or just over a dollar per month.
Obviously running it only one day a week might not be enough. Perhaps running it 4 hours per day would be better? I just don't know yet. Further, I'm sure certain times of the year will see higher/lower moisture levels. Still a lot of learning to do.

Only FYI, the blower pushes the air sideways. Be sure that's ok where you want to set up
