Solid product, excellent support

This dehumidifier has performed well over several years of use. When the bucket needed replacing, the company sent us a replacement free of charge. Excellent customer service!

Great product with excellent support

When I received the item and set it up, the pump would not turn on. There was an E5 error message. I emailed support but didn't get a response. I called and waited on hold for a bit and got through to a support agent. She was able to provide support while having the same model item in front of her and was able to troubleshoot and send me pictures of a silicone washer insert that was missing. This was sent to me and once I installed it correctly everything worked as expected. Long story short... Item works great. Technical support is VERY helpful.

The dehumidifier arrived promptly and was well packed. Very easy to look up and over 9, the humidity in my basement dropped from 78-45 and by day 3, it had dropped down to 34. The the continuous drain holes is very short and probably not very practical to use unless you have a drain nearby. However, the continuous pump drainage hose is long enough and works well. The dehumidifier is fairly quiet and thus far, I am very pleased with how it is performed. I was also able to use the QR cord that came with the package to register this appliance without any difficulty. I hope that unlike my previous dehumidifier which was made by Keystone, this has reasonable longevity.

Honeywell TP70PWKN 70 - dehumidifier

Functions as advertised and am quite satisfied with its performance. The vertical pump distance is actually a good 15+ feet - length of the included plastic tubing. Attaching the hose is a bit tricky with regard to how “tight”. I needed to play with it awhile to ensure no leakage. Quiet and the instructions are good. I'd recommend the unit over a Haier - which I had and the internal pump broke down after 3 years and the company said it was not under warranty, Ugh

Works well and very quiet

So far, so good. Ask me again in a year. Most of this type of device dies a month after the warranty. The five year warranty intrigued me and it is quiet and doesn't frost up so far.

Honeywell 70-Pint Dehumidifier

This unit installed and has operated flawlessly. It is quiet and an excellent performer, I bring no less that 12 tropical plants into my house each fall, this unit keeps the RH in my house at a even 55% RH.

Easy to setup. Many operational settings. Quite compared to other dehumidifiers I've tried.

There is no auto-on/auto-off feature based on reaching the desired humidity setting only the timer, which you have to reset every time you use it. It has a built-in pump, but it doesnt pump until the bucket is full, and doesnt empty the bucket, so despite this nice built-in pumping facility, I still have to empty the bucket on it. For the cost of this unit, I am very disappointed.

Competitive price at this store, the day I bought it. One day delay vs. time expected receipt. Staff good to work with re delivery. Very large space, so had to buy a second one. So very pleased with the result. Humidity level was 55+, and now with both machines, stays at 37-42. Most important feature to me is the pump. Works like a charm Vertical about 8 feet & horizontal about 7 feet. Would definitely recommend.

So far so good

Works as described. Pump helps a lot. Don't need a floor drain.

Great unit

This unit removes a lot of moisture quickly and quietly. While the pump works as avertised, it will not empty the tank. The feeder tube the pump uses to withdraw the water sticks down in the tank only a few inches from the the top. The owner will need to empty the tank to prevent mold build-up.

Humidity high in the Georgia mountains

Love the results, but pump doesn't engage unless tank is full. Instructions are brief, results good.

What maintenance is required?
It is recommended to clean the filter every two weeks. You can wash the filter with water, but it is important to allow the filter to dry before placing it back inside the unit. You can also use a vacuum as an alternate cleaning method for the filter. When you are finished with the dehumidifier for the season, be sure to empty any water that has been collected in the water bin. Disconnect the hose if you used one, and make sure you replace the drain cap and rubber stopper back into the drain outlet. Make sure that you store the unit in a cool place, and away from sunlight.
How is the water removed?
When the water tank reaches capacity, it will cause the unit to shut off until the bin is emptied. There is also the option to attach a garden hose to redirect the drainage and allow it to run without interruption. If you choose to attach a hose, you will need to ensure that the garden hose is free of kinks and that it drains into a reliable receptor, like a sink, Please read the manual for specific instructions.
What kind of setup is required?
The portable dehumidifier is easy to setup and does not require any installation. Just remember to close all windows and doors in order for the unit to successfully work as required. It is important that it is in an enclosed area at all times while it's operational.
What added benefits does my dehumidifier offer?
Portable dehumidifiers are easy-to-use handy devices that can be moved around from one place to the other with ease. A portable dehumidifier works to reduce and eliminate humidity from musty basements, or from any part of your home in an area with high humidity.
Does the outlet on the continuous drain fit an ordinary garden hose?
The TP Series Dehumidifiers do come packaged with a drain tube for continuous drainage. You can attach a standard garden hose for continuous drainage but the max length is about 1 meter OR, you must have the hose positioned vertically downwards below the height of the dehumidifier. The continuous drainage feature relies on gravity to pull the water condensation through the hose and thus if it is too long and straight, the water may collect inside the hose or return to the unit. This is standard for most gravity drain dehumidifiers. You could buy the Honeywell model TP70PWK with drain pump which would allow you to extend up to 5 meters as the pump helps to push the water further.

Energy Star Dehumidifier for Rooms up to 4,000 Sq. Ft.

The Honeywell TP70PWKN 70 Pint (50 Pint 2019 DOE Standard)* Energy Star Dehumidifier effectively removes moisture to protect walls, curtains, furniture and appliances from mold and mildew. An ideal addition for medium to large rooms such as basements, crawl spaces, dens, bedrooms and bathrooms, this ENERGY STAR qualified dehumidifier provides powerful moisture removal with minimal energy consumption. The built-in drain pump allows condensate water to be drained vertically or horizontally up to 15 ft. away, while the continuous drain option increases flexibility by allowing you to drain the condensate water for long unattended operation. This Honeywell Dehumidifier includes a smart digital humidistat control system that automatically senses room moisture levels and activates dehumidification to help maintain desired humidity levels. Smart digital controls offer fast and convenient operation while a unique and elegant front mirage display will allow you to monitor humidity changes from across the room.

Hassle-free maintenance via separate alerts for a full tank and filter cleaning make this an easy dehumidifier to maintain. The water tank is equipped with patent-pending Splash Guards to avoid messy spills. A drain tube has also been included for long unattended operation. The dehumidifier's washable dust filter helps reduce dust and impurities in the air, while being able to be easily cleaned under a faucet. No replacement filters required. Mobility has also been addressed with the inclusion of a heavy-duty handle that can withstand up to 150 lbs. Smooth gliding wheels and a cord winder will allow you to easily transfer this energy star dehumidifier from one room to the next.

*In June 2019, the Department of Energy implemented a new test procedure which takes various factors into account to generate a lower pint size rating for dehumidifiers to indicate capacity compared to previous testing procedures.
