I recall a lot of interest about the dehumidifier from B&Q but which model was it? There are 2 that are of interest: The Slimline at £99.99 and Compact at £74.99. I need one that will drain into a sink. Can anyone advise?
The compressor-less jobbie which was mentioned on a previous thread comes in at closer to £200... or at least I couldn't find one at the quoted £99 sale price .
I bought the £75 model and it does what it says on the box. I have it sitting on a worktop draining into the sink.
One thing to look out for though, In order for the thing to drain externally, unscrew the plastic bung on the back, then take out the little rubber stopper from the pipe. It now has to stop up the water outlet that drains into the bucket. The hole is on the right hand side, upper... its set in the black plastic housing so you won't see it without a torch.
There were no instructions with the unit and I had to deduce it for myself after finding the bucket filling all the time.
I posted re- Amberdry.
To my delight it works beyond expectation, after leaving for approx 3 weeks it has transformed the interior to a dry & warm environment so much so that it even keeps the cockpit dry!! /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
I have never used a compressor type dehumidifier but from what I read these are the most common, everyone who has posted a response is more than happy with there choice.
When we bought our absorption dehumidifier I had a bargain (£100)
& I posted to let everyone know (at B&Q).
I am sorry that it appears that no-one else managed to secure one.
If the Amberdry had been £200 when I was looking I probably wouldnt have bought it, that said after trying it in hindsight I would.
There is a link below.
The exact unit I bought was the amberdry but I noticed they do a Rubydry for marine applications, only difference seems to be £50!!
It has a hoselock connection so it can be connected to any hose with a standard hoselock fitting.
