Review: DeLonghi 40 Pint Dehumidifier

I just picked up a new dehumidifier to replace the one in the basement.  Since the basement is under grade or below the sewer line I had to remove the water bucket every day.  When you forget it turns off so it’s not working unless you do.  Since I keep forgetting I had the dehumidifier drain into a 5 gallon bucket and put a sump pump in the bucket connected to a garden hose.  This 100 foot hose rain all the way to the other side of the basement.

When I was looking for a replacement dehumidifier I found one that made it super easy to automatically drain the water tank.  The DeLonghi 40 Pint Dehumidifier has a built in water pump that can pump the water up 8 feet using a small 1/4 hose.  This is great since you only need to drill a small hole to run the hose outside.  I should note I run it at high fan speed and I find the nose level is low.

Before drilling the hole I tested it by tying the water hose to the ceiling and back to a bucket and waited for an hour to see what happened.  It worked great.  It comes with about 14 feet of hose so there is enough to go most anywhere.

A great humidifier that saves you to work of emptying the water bucket.
