We purchased this dehumidifier for use in our unfinished basement. The basement had developed a strong musty smell even though we had never had any water on the floor or walls. At first, we manually emptied the tank because we wanted to see how much water it was removing. The first day it removed almost two tanks of water out of the air, resulting in a significant reduction of the musty smell. By the end of the next day, the musty smell was completely gone.

Over the next couple of weeks, we would empty the tank each morning and evening and each time the tank would be between 1/3 to 1/2 full. We eventually hooked the hose up and ran it into the sump pump and it has continued to keep the humidity between 36 and 42 percent. We've been using it for about 1 1/2 months now and it has continued to work like a charm, it has kept our basement odor free and dry and it is easy to operate.

We were also very pleased with Sylvane. We placed the order at around 11:30pm on October 18th and the dehumidifier was delivered on October 20th - you can't get much better than that!

I got rave reviews on this product from my in-laws. While it is doing the job, i wonder if there's a better product. Ultimately, the test comes in durability. I won't be able to properly give a true review for another 2-5 years. If it's still working then, it's a 5 star. For now, it's a 3 star.

The dehumidifier works fine in pulling moisture from my basement, creating a dry 50% humidity environment, except that the tempurature in the basement seems to be increased significantly. I can't tell you how much, but it is now hot in my basement. Logically, I wouldn't expect this as a lower humidity should result in a cooler air feel but i think the unit throws off so much heat that it warms my whole basement, which i would estimate at 600 sq ft.

Also, I dump the water as it fills the chamber in the unit. I wish these were designed better. This unit does not pour out well. It spills every time I empty it. There's no good way to pour out the water. I don't think this was designed for or at least it wasn't designed well.

    Comments about Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifier:

    When I first received this product my husband wanted to send it back because it was too big. I refused to send it back and talked him into keeping it. I am so happy I did, this machine picks up alot of water. We recently moved to the beach and I encountered something I never did before...humidity. This machine sucks the water right up. The only downfall is that it's loud, best to turn it on when your not home and I wish there was a way you can add some kind of frangrance into the machine.

      Product works great. Highly recommend. We use the drain hose into sump pump now. It's pulls the water out of the air so well the bucket fills up in just over 1/2 a day. I'd buy another.

        Very effective and relatively quiet. I don't particulary care for the constant fan operation but the timer helps control operation during periods of unneeded usage. I like the digital settings. Overall, a welcome improvement over my old machine.

                Comments about Danby DDR7009REE Dehumidifier:

                Excellent value--really sucks the moisture out. One pro/con is that the fan runs continuously. It certainly helps keep the moisture down, but tends to be a bit noisy. We have the drain hose right into the sump, so I haven't had to touch the unit since I plugged it in. It even comes with a remote control to adjust the humidity level, but I never use it.
