      Comments about Danby DDR60A3GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier with Pump:

      We use it in our 1900 square foot finished basement and it does an excellent job. With the self drain and the condensation pump, it's very convenient to run to a drain and not worry about emptying the tank. When the fan runs on high, it is somewhat noisy, but moves a lot of air.

        A+ Home Dehumidifier with Internal Pump

          Comments about Danby DDR60A3GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier with Pump:

          For basement use this particular dehumidifier, with its internal pump, is the BEST PRODUCT on the market.
          The user's manual was very clear and easy to follow and the dehumidifier was up and running in less than 15 minutes.
          The internal pump is the bets feature of this dehumidifier. It can pump water to a distance of ~ 15 feet from the unit, making the placement of this dehumidifier very flexible and convenient.

          The only feature that I wish this unit had is a built in timer with multiple ON/OFF options. I wish that I could run this unit automatically on a 6 hours ON and 6 hours OFF cycle.

          Otherwise, I highly recommend this particular dehumidifier model for basement use.

            Fan does not automatically shut off, but I knew that. I shut it down periodically. It would rate a 5 otherwise because the pump is worth it. No more pails.
            The unit works great, does the entire moderate sized cellar with ease.

            Although we found the directions for which tube to use to create continuous drain, once we figured it out, were pleased to find the snap in connector for the skinny tubing was off the ground and TIGHT, unlike the last one I had which was very loose and easy to step on hence dumping water on the floor when set to pump. Still cannot figure out what the fat tubing is for, but glad that connector is up off the base near the floor and is tight as well should we ever need to use it.

                Comments about Danby DDR60A3GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier with Pump:

                This unit has a simple and very effective drain pump with a long hose to drain into our below-ground sink which has a pump up to the septic system. We were so pleased with the well-thought-out design. Minutes after plugging it in I was amazed water was already trickling up through the tube. It's dramatically quieter than the broken no-name brand it replaced, but moves a large quantity of air to dehumidify our damp-aired basement. The fan runs all the time using little power as the compressor cycles on and off as necessary. (That's how we have used previous units.) It's what we expect from Danby. We have Danby 5200 BTU and 8000 BTU window air conditioners and have been very happy with those, too.

                • During Sleep
                • Summer Humidity

                Comments about Danby DDR60A3GP 60 Pint Dehumidifier with Pump:

                My family and I live in Houston, one of the most humid cities in the United States. The humidity is frequently over 75%, so we needed to get a dehumidifier which is effective enough to cover a 1400 square foot condo. Here are my impressions after almost a month of use.

                Effectiveness:
                I typically set the dehumidifier at 45% in the living room. Before using the dehumidifier, the humidity throughout the day in the condo was around 65 to 75% (measured with a newly calibrated hygrometer). After using this dehumidifier, the humidity is around 45% in the living room, and 50% in the attached bedrooms. I should also note that I only turn the dehumidifier on around 10 hours a day. I'm confident that if I just left it running, it would maintain the whole condo at 45% or lower quite easily.

                Other Pros:
                The included 2 year warranty is quite good (plus another 2 months after registration.) That may not seem like a long time, but every other brand of dehumidifier only includes a 1 year warranty. Also, the included pump makes using this unit far more convenient. The 16.4 foot tube allows me to place the unit in a central position while eliminating the need for constant water disposal.

                Cons:
                The only con I have for this unit (and the reason why I didn't rate it 5 stars) is due to the noisiness of the fan. It's too loud to have on while watching the TV, although I find it satisfactory as white noise when I'm sleeping. This is compounded by the fact the fan on this unit never shuts off even once the humidity reaches the desired level. It's designed to shut off only the condenser while allowing the fan to continue circulating air. I would prefer to have the option to have the fan automatically shut off together with the condensor.

                Overall, I'm very satisfied with this purchase and highly recommend this model.
