  • Product Overview

    Recently recommended by a leading consumer reporting firm for excellent water removal and efficiency—the Soleus Air DP1-70E-03 Dehumidifier combines large capacity water removal with efficient, easy operation. The unit removes up to 70 pints of water daily when indoor air conditions reach saturation (about 35 pints at AHAM), making it an excellent solution for damp basements and other rooms in your home that are plagued by high moisture. Notably, this home dehumidifier has earned an Energy Star rating from the U.S. Department of Energy and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for efficient and eco-friendly operation. It does not emit harmful greenhouse gases, and it can help contribute to monthly savings on your energy bill.

    A variety of functions, including automatic overflow protection, automatic restart, automatic defrost, and continuous gravity drainage, make operating your dehumidifier hassle free. Soft-touch controls and a digital display make it easy to toggle between settings for this portable Soleus dehumidifier.

    Simple Humidity Control

    This three-speed Soleus 70-pint dehumidifier includes a wide range of features designed to take the worry out of regular operation. An adjustable digital humidistat maintains your selected humidity level by cycling the compressor on and off automatically throughout the day. Using the convenient touchpad controls, you can easily and accurately set the humidity level for 35% to 80%. (The recommended indoor humidity level is between 30 and 50%.)

    Additionally, the Soleus DP1-70E-03 features a programmable timer that allows you to program it to automatically turn off after two or four hours. This features helps conserve energy by dehumidifying your space only when necessary. It is also great for helping you save on energy costs.

    Automatic Protection

    The Soleus Air DP1-70E-03 includes a variety of features designed to keep your mind at ease while the dehumidifier is in operation. To protect your dehumidifier from damage caused by an overflow when the 17-pint tank reaches full capacity, the Tank Full indicator light will illuminate, and the DP1-70E-03 will turn off automatically. After you empty the tank manually and properly replace, normal operation will resume.

    Automatic defrost is also included to prevent frost build-up on the internal evaporator cords. This Soleus dehumidifier automatically stops operation, defrosts the coils, and resumes dehumidifying once conditions are safe again for the machine to operate. Additionally, automatic restart means that the dehumidifier will continue dehumidifying automatically when power is restored.

    Convenient Gravity Drainage

    Continuous gravity drainage of collected water is possible using the drainage port located on the side of the unit. This option allows you to run the Soleus dehumidifier continuously without having to empty the water bucket. To set up gravity drainage, thread a standard garden hose (not included) onto the port nozzle and position the hose downhill so that water can drain out into a floor drain, out of a window, or anywhere that it is safe to use gravity drainage.

    Additional Features

    Other features of the Soleus DP1-70E-03 Dehumidifier include:

    • Three Fan Speeds - Choose between low, medium, and high fan speeds to suit certain dehumidifying tasks.
    • Low Temperature Operation – This Soleus dehumidifier operates in temperatures as low as 40 degrees F.
    • Front-Loaded Water Bucket – This type of configuration encourages easy removal and emptying of the water bucket.
    • Air Filter – The washable air filter helps clean large dust and other particles out of the air to protect the unit and ensure top operation.
    • Clean Filter Indicator Light – When this light illuminates, remove and wash the air filter with soapy water, dry, and replace.
    • Portable Design – The unit features casters and a top handle for easy movement from room to room and up and down stairs.

      This dehumidifier was purchased for use in our unfinished basement, which is completely below grade. It is replacing a 30 pint unit which was not very effective especially due to the coolness of our basement.

      We use the basement as a work shop, laundry room, and also for various crafts, so it is important to maintain a low humidity level. The new Soleus dehumidifier was delivered about one week after ordering, arriving on time and in good condition. It was extremely easy to unpack and set up. It was easy to carry downstairs since it has a built in carrying handle on top of the machine.

      The manual is very concise and is recommended reading since it details all the features and indicates that it should be operated in the continuous mode for the first 24 hour break in period, probably not the way I would have set it up. This machine works very well at removing moisture. I had no idea that our basement was at greater than 70 percent relative humidity until I plugged it in.

      It began removing moisture almost immediately, filling the bucket within the first 24 hours. So far we have been dumping the bucket manually, so we can keep track of the water removed. This unit does have an easily accessible fitting to enable attaching a garden hose directly to the machine.

      The only draw back to this unit is that the fan may be considered loud to some people, especially if used in a living space. For us the fan noise is not an issue since it is located in the basement. It cannot be heard from the first floor living space, even when operated on the high fan setting. We appreciate the high air flow (and subsequent noise) from this unit since we need circulation in our basement area. Overall a very good value.

      I called Soleus only to be told to replace it or take it to a local service for repair. I did not take the warranty when I purchased it but figured no unit would fail that fast . My old GE lasted 20 years!
      I am not happy with the cold response I received .I will research other manufacturers and hope I can find a more reliable one.

        This is in our basement family room and does a perfect job. It came boxed and I just opened the box, removed the tape, and plugged it in. It ran for a few days and now it just runs now and then. The bucket is very easy to empty. I bought 2 of these...a 70 pint and a 45 pint. The price is very good too.

        Comments about Soleus Air DP1-70E-03 70 Pint Dehumidifier:

        It is unfortunate that you cannot set it at the level of humidity that you would like to maintain and have it turn itself on or off,as necessary, to maintain that hunmidity level. Operating at 4 or 2 hour cycles really isn't as effective as our previous dehumidifier which operated as I described above.

        After a year (when warranty runs out, NATCH), my 1st one model developed frozen coils, and the replacement model would no longer trap any water. NOT worth the money, for such a short lifespan!

              A solid unit in terms of operation. Good functions and controls. Works well in removing water from the air in a basement. Just a little on the loud side, but if used in a basement, the noise level should not be problem, but be aware of this potential side effect.

                    This is a replacement dehumidifier for a different brand that quit working in our finished basement. We were impressed by the quality and details of this unit. One of the very important items is the removable/cleanable filter. Also, the location of the water collection bin (front loading) as well as the available hose attachment sold us on this unit. The best feature however is how it works. After running the unit for only a very short time, the dampness/coolness of our lower level is completely gone. This area finally feels like the living area in the rest of our home.
