Will a dehumidifier take humidity from the drain it sets by ( the drain the water from the dehumidifier is running into)? If so seems logical to keep dehumidifier some distance from drain.AnswerHi Dee, thank you for your question.The most common location for a dehumidifier in the USA is in the basement and it is usual for the condensate to be drained to a floor drain. Like all domestic drains a floor drain incorporates a trap, a U, S or P shape in the pipe below the inlet which retains a small quantity of water after every use of the drain.This water acts as a seal and prevents sewer gas from entering the building through the drain. Sewer gas introduces unpleasant odors into the house and may cause symptoms such as headaches and nausea.The water in the trap will evaporate over time. That time depends on several factors but the most important are the temperature and relative humidity in the room in which the drain is located. Warmer air and/or lower relative humidity will increase the evaporation rate while cooler or wetter air will reduce the evaporation rate.Because it is essential to prevent the ingress of sewer gas a drain that is not used frequently may be fitted with a "trap primer". A trap primer releases a small volume of water into the drain from time to time to replenish the water in the trap and counteract the effects of evaporation. A floor drain in a basement may well be equipped with a trap primer since the purpose of the drain is to provide drainage following flooding of the basement which, hopefully, does not happen every day!How does a dehumidifier affect a floor drain? A dehumidifier lowers humidity (there's nothing like stating the obvious :) ) and raises air temperature a few degrees. This obviously increases the evaporation rate of water in the trap and any other liquid water, in your fish tank or flower vase for example. The effect on the floor drain will be a little greater if the dehumidifier is close to the drain but it will still have a significant effect wherever it is located.If, as in your case, the dehumidifier is draining continuously to the floor drain the accelerated evaporation of water from the trap is countered by the constant drip of the condensate into the floor drain from the dehumidifier. In other words the dehumidifier, while operating, acts like a trap primer. It has the added advantage that the water has been cooled by the dehumidifier which reduces the rate of evaporation of the water in the trap.Those who rely on the water collection container, the pan or bucket, to collect the water do not have this convenience and would be wise to empty the contents of the pan, or a portion of them, into the floor drain to replenish the water in the trap once or twice a week.If you were also concerned about the extra work load on the dehumidifier my view is that it is too small to worry about. The trap may contain ounces, maybe up to a pint or two, of water but this is a minor amount compared with the tens of pints a dehumidifier may extract from the air every day. Moving the dehumidifier a greater distance from the drain will only slow, not eliminate, the evaporation from the drain and may not be worth the effort and potential expense.If you wish to site your dehumidifier a worthwhile distance from the floor drain you are using you will almost certainly need a condensate pump to force the water to the drain; gravity is unlikely to be sufficient. This is the potential expense I mentioned. In addition the condensate will be a little warmer by the time it reaches the drain, reducing the benefit of the cooling effect of the dehumidifier.I hope I have dealt with the concerns behind your question but, if not, please get back to me.Tom (Webmaster)
The "bucket full" light will not go off even though I have emptied the bucket and the bucket isn't in place. So the appliance cannot run. What can I do besides return to the store?AnswerHi Claudia, thank you for your questionIf I have understood your question correctly the "bucket full" light is on when the bucket is not in place; i.e. when the bucket has not been re-inserted into the dehumidifier.This is quite normal. The "bucket full" indicator on most dehumidifiers will not go off until the bucket is correctly replaced inside the dehumidifier. Try replacing the bucket into the dehumidifier. Ensure that it is properly in place and see if this solves the problem.If the "bucket full" light does not go off remove the bucket and look inside it. The "trigger" for the bucket full light is a hinged float which rises with the level of water in the bucket and, when it is fully raised, operates a switch that stops the dehumidifier to prevent water from the bucket overflowing. When this switch is operated the "bucket full" indicator comes on.Occasionally the float may jam in the "up" position, remaining there after the bucket has been emptied and causing the dehumidifier to "think" the bucket is full. Gently, with one finger, try to lift the float toward the top of the bucket. If it does not move easily try a gentle downward pressure and see if it drops back into place.If this works you have the choice of keeping the dehumidifier and simply releasing the float each time you empty it or of seeking a replacement bucket. If this does not solve your problem either then, as you say, the unit should be returned to the store for replacement, repair or a refund.I hope this is helpful.Tom (Webmaster)
Does the water tank have a handle to carry when emptying?AnswerThe EcoAir ECO 20LDK does not have a carrying handle for the water collection tank.The manual for the ECO 20LDK includes a drawing of the dehumidifier with the tank partially removed (page 13). You may download a copy by following this link.The manual is in PDF format and to read it you need to have Adobe Reader installed on your computer. If you do not have Adobe Reader you should install this first by visiting Adobe.com. The download and installation are simple and Adobe is an entirely reputable company from which you may dowload with confidence.Tom (Webmaster)
Frigidaire FAD704TDP works great but automatic drain quit working, why? Hose is not clogged. AnswerHello, thank you for your question.I assume that the water is dripping into the bucket. If so the dehumidifier is still operating normally and the problem is solely with the drainage.If the hose is not clogged the most likely explanation is that the hose connector is clogged. With the dehumidifier off and disconnected from the power supply remove the hose. You need something to probe the hose connector that is narrow enough to pass inside, flexible yet rigid enough to be able to work inside the connector. An 18 inch cable tie ( also known as a zip tie or tie wrap) would be suitable.Care is needed to work the tie into the connector to avoid damage to the dehumidifier so take your time. When the tie is in as far as it will go withdraw it slowly while twisting it. This should loosen any clogged material. If you are successful some water may follow as the tie is withdrawn so be prepared.Reconnect the hose, power up and, hopefully, the problem will be solved. I can think of no other explanation for the drainage failure but perhaps other visitors to the site would care to add their comments and ideas.Tom (Webmaster) 041b061a72
