Ebac Powerdri 18Ltr Dehumidifier Unit
from wet to dry.
having started to renovate our utility room ,found an excess of condensation building up on the ceiling and upper walls, tried a heater to no avail, as the utility room is attached to side of house,asked a builder for some advice! Hence my purchase of EBAC powerdri, working over the last 12hrs, can already see a marked decrease in moisture build-up,will come in
handy when decorating starts in new-year.An absolutely brilliant piece of equipment...

Having one dehumidifier for over ten years, plus a second over seven years, it was a surprise/disappointment when l had to replace the second due to a fire recall put upon it. I decided this bright yellow one, with 'professional' written on it, must be superior. Used it where the recall one had been, and big disappointment. After some days of trying, swapped them around, and found works fine in a separate area a quarter the size. Used with my humidity meter, l can turn it down to around the 60-65degs humidity mark. Like the way the fan switches off completely when conditions are met. Unlike my recall machine. My other machines blew quite a wind out the top, but this one has virtually nothing out the front. Quieter because of it. Seems to work well, though, in this reduced space. Water container is easy to remove, though you only know when it's full by a light, no indication inbetween. Decided there are many cheaper models out that can do the job, and not bright yellow.

Dry Car Storage
Bought this for dry storing two cars in my garage over the winter months. Immediately drew a lot of moisture from the atmosphere then settled down, clicking on and off as humidity rose and fell. The hose needs to dunked in hot water to remove kinks and coils to allow the expelled water to run freely. The yellow plastic casing is very brittle and easily damaged, the first unit I collected was damaged (part of base snapped off and leaking) but was replaced FOC. Check for damage before taking delivery.

Dry as a bone
Unfortunately, the tank is as dry as a bone not the room!
I bought two dehumidifies to compare their performance. The cheaper one (also from screwfix) makes a little more noise but it also sucks water from the air very effectively.
This machine sucks nothing unless you turn it to the maximum setting - which is probably the "flood recovery" mode.
I say probably as the instructions are so poor that they don't even say what the symbols on the dial actually mean.
Even when turned up to max, it produces 1/3rd of the water volume that the other machine did (set at the mid range setting).
There is no read out of the humidity level in the room (which the cheaper model has).
It looks pretty and is quiet when running, but that's rather beside the point, when it fails to dehumidify the room.
I guess I may just have a rogue machine. I'm taking it back tomorrow and buying another WDH 210DB16R
