    Dehumidifiers


    gonna hafta get a dehumifier for my basement, I'm looking at ones in the 50pint size, not familiar with the pump out option, the one I have in my office, I have to empty manually, I have an old old Sears unit that gulps electricity, that one was setup to drain into a sump, and pump from there, I'm gonna check and see if that sump still works

    the ones that do pump out, how much head ? can't seem to find it in any spec.

    I would also want to drain the condensate from my new water heater and pump that out too, I'd have to plumb that into the system somewhere, easier if the pump out is separate unit

    tell me what you guys have

    I have this guy but wish I bought the next size up. It doesn't have pump-out but it does have an attachment for a hose, so I simply run a hose into the sump pit and let the sump pump do the work.

    I bought mine a month or two ago when my sump pump died & I got water in my basement.

    Right now the dehumidifier is trying to dry out my gun safe..

    Probably could use a condensate pump for both if your sump is dead. I think I have 2 in my basement that I took out when I plumbed everything into my sump. You can have em

    yup...i am running 2 in my basement as well...i have 1 for my boiler that pumps to another 1 which also catches the attic and the basement AC units...then that 1 pumps up to the top of my foundation wall and goes gravity around the perimeter of the wall and down into the sump pit...my sump pit pumps up and over the foundation wall and down into the perforated foundation drain pipe on the outside of the wall at the base of the foundation which loops around the whole house and then goes gravity to the back yard

    this is what i am using for condensate pumps...
