I bought two, one for each home's basement and was thrilled with the first one. The second one was noisy beyond belief, but when I reported that to the company, they replaced the machine and it is wonderful. It is much quieter and I can no longer hear it on the second floor when it's in the basement.

It is efficient, is absorbing lots of moisture, has dried the basement, has removed the damp "odor" found in basements, and works like a charm.
I love that it is self-sustaining, in that, by attaching a hose, I do not have to empty the machine and if it gets too cold in the basement, it will defrost itself. It will also restart itself after a power outage, which is a plus.

The size is easy to handle and it has made a world of difference in the living quality of the basement.

    Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

    Dried out my basement after flooding. The unit REALLY pulls out the water fast. In one setting, the fan runs all the time in order to measure humidity, but when my hygrometer shows reduced humidity, I turn the dehumidifier off. Moving air creates noise; I do NOT rate this unit as "noisy" considering how much air it has to move. The bucket is big, but I use a hose to the drain for convenience. In an adjoining room, I used a small portable fan to blow air under the bookshelf. That extra air movement helped dry out the rug completely. There is NO residual odor after the flooding, thanks to the dehumidifier. Setup was REMARKABLY easy.

      Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

      I have this draining continuously, seems to be doing an adequate job so I believe it to be a good value. Delivered very quickly and it was extremely well wrapped and padded so arrived in great shape. When you take the bucket out to empty it if you are not just allowing it to drain all the time, water does want to dribble out, not well designed in that regard.

      Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

      The unit does not shut off when it reaches the assigned humidity; Hard to tell if only fan is running, and there is no reason for fan only. I treat the unit as though it were manually controlled. Too many bottoms that make no sense and make no difference. I did not return the unit because the first one unit I ordered (cheaper and easier, I believe) did not work at all; and I was not up for packing another unit.

        the unit is working very well, I like the fact that the compressor turns off once the set humidity level is reached and turns back on once the level goes back up.

          The emptying bucket has no indents or handles on the exterior bucket to hold onto so I frequently spill. One time the bucket was full and it continued to run and overflowed.

              Comments about PrimeAire PA7010E 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

              The product runs well but continuously. This generates large amounts of heat within the room. The bucket fills up acter 3-4 hours, meaning it does its job. Would like to hook up a hose to the outside with it, bit have not found the optimal location for the machine to sit yet. It hasn't happened yet, but the plastic covering the control button feels it will peel after a few uses ( not talking about the protect plastic thats removed for shipping).

              Biggest complaint is the bucket for removal. There are no grab handles to remove the bucket from the unit easily. Fear one day I will remove the bucket incorrectly and therefore it will break. The plastic it is constructed off seems a little less than hevy duty.
