At first glance, there might not be any differences between the 50-pint and 70-pint model, you can tell it is actually smaller when put side by side. At 13.4 x 19.5 x x 9.9 in and 34 lb weight, it is about the size and weight of the pact. There’s ventilation surrounding the machine and a front bucket that can hold plenty of water. Removing the bucket is a piece of cake even if the tank is filled with water. There’s also a small indicator window that you can peak to check if the bucket is full or just rely on the auto shut down features. TOSOT 30 pint dehumidifier also comes with a drain access outlet that supports the gravity drainage method. You can connect it with any standard garden hose.

Tosot 30 Pint Dehumidifier Control Panel

Let’s move on to TOSOT 30 pint dehumidifier controls panel. On the most left you have the power button with power that will turn on/ off the machine with a power on indicator. Next, the filter button that will reset the filter indicator that reminds you to clean the filter. The filter indicator light will illuminate after 250 hours of operation. At the center are the two humidity control buttons (-/+) and a top display screen. Each press will set 5% of the increments between 35%-80% relative humidity. To activate nonstop mode (continuous dehumidifying), repeatedly pressing the – button until the screen shows NS. The Nonstop indicator light will also illuminate the mode you’re in. Next, fan speed will cycle between high, medium, and low. Timer button has 2 separate functions depending on the dehumidifier status. When the dehumidifier is on, press the timer to cycle between 2 or 4 hours in powering off the unit. When the dehumidifier is off, press the timer to cycle between 2 or 4 hours in powering on the unit. Lastly, for the model that comes with an internal pump, you can activate the internal pump mode. Connect a 1/4 inch drain hose to the outlet, then press and hold the button for 3 seconds to activate it. Other notable features include 10 seconds beeping alarm sound when the bucket is full or missing for more than 3 minutes. A full indicator light that will stay illuminated when the bucket is full or not replaced correctly.

To recap on the specification again, there are casters, front reservoir, wash air filter, 24-hour timer, and dual drainage mode. passive features include Energy Star rated, power outage restart, anti-frosting, and standard 1-year warranty.

Most will not consider 30 pints capacity as adequate, we beg to differ. It is powerful enough to cover up to 1,500 square feet of room size including garage, bedroom or bathroom. There are 3 fan speeds available for selection, if you want faster moisture removal, go with mid or high speed. Another advantage of TOSOT 30 pint dehumidifier is the consistent airflow delivery rate even on a very cold day. No problem running the machine in the winter at close to freezing temperature.

What’s inside count

TOSOT has a conventional refrigeration setup that works similarly to an air conditioner. When active, nearby air will be suck towards the air filter that traps initial pollutants like dust, hair, and mold. After passing through the air filter, the damp air will flow towards the freezing coil and extracted the water out. The water droplets will then either drip to the bucket or directed to the gravity drain. The dry air will then be reheated into mist and expel back out. the entire dehumidification will not stop until a humidity point is achieved.

Keep it down

TOSOT 30 pint dehumidifier has the most subtle noise, especially in low and mid-speed. High speed is loud but it's still bearable around 50 dB decibel. Ideal for night time use as long it is not next to your bed. As for power consumption, the Energy Star tag means energy efficiency is on par with the market. You do not have to worry about high electricity bills if the dehumidifier is constantly running at low speed.

At what cost

+- 161.99
At around the region of 150, TOSOT 30 pint dehumidifier starting price is very attractive for a newcomer. You'll get the same spec as the higher variant bar the internal pump, and the same control panel with display. Unless there is a need for large spaces and in an extreme humidity environment, there is no need to go with any higher capacity model.
TOSOT can be purchased at Amazon at a discounted price. You have to act quick though as the stock quantity is very limited. Some retailers like Walmart, Home Depot might carry it but you will have to try your luck. Note the sales price, shipping, and return policy is definitely not as comprehensive as the giant retailer. TOSOT official website is a no go for online purchase. In short, just stick with Amazon.

Other variants

More powerful with higher capacity but at the cost of a bigger dimension and weight. Price wise the 70-pint is a much better deal.
Tosot 70 Pint Dehumidifier GDN70BA-A3EBA2D

Tosot 70 Pint

If you are going with a bigger capacity dehumidifier, just go with this as the price point is not too far off than the 50-pint model.
