There’s no mistake of TOSOT 70 pint dehumidifier even from far. At 14.8 x 24 x 11.4 in and 51.8 lb weight, it is gigantic and will not fit into a small room well. The front wave ventilation is highly functional although some would prefer a more simplistic approach. The front drain bucket with a water indicator is located at the usual spot. Removing it is easy thanks to the swivel handle and spill-resistant baffles. The washable filter is tuck inside the machine that can be slide out after you have taken out the bucket. Other notable features include 4 casters, outlet, and a top control panel. The premium model comes with a built-in pump but the back drainage outlet is good enough to support a standard garden hose.
Let’s move to the control panel. To the most left, the power button will indicator light turn on or off the machine. Next to it is the filter button that resets the filter timer and indicator light (after 250 hours of runtime). Press the button after you have washed the filter. Right at the center below the display screen, there are two humidity buttons (-/+) that will add or minus humidity by 5% per click. You can set the relative humidity level between 35%-80%. You can also activate nonstop mode by repeatedly pressing the – button until the screen shows NS and the nonstop indicator light lit. The fan speed button will cycle between high, medium, and low with the indicator showing the mode you’re in. Timer button can either turn on or off the dehumidifier. On press, it will cycle between 2 or hours. You can activate pump mode by connecting a drain hose to the back outlet, then press and hold the pump button for 3 seconds. Other passive features include alarm sound that beeps for 10 seconds when the bucket is full or missing for more than 3 minutes. A full indicator light that will stay on when the bucket is full or not inserted correctly.
To recap on the specification, you have a large front reservoir, washable air filter, 24-hour timer, and drainage option. GDN70BA-A3EBA2C is the basic version while GDN45BA-A3EBA2B comes with a built-in pump. Supporting features include power outage restart that resumes the operation once power is restored, anti-frosting that prevent ice buildup, and auto shut-down after drain bucket is full.
Pints and speed
What’s inside countTOSOT 70-pint dehumidifier refrigeration technology works like an air conditioner or vacuum cleaner. It sucks air in, passes through a filter, and blows hot air out. When the moist air is pulled into the freezing cold pipes, the water will be separated from the air and slowly drip down to a bucket. If continuous drainage mode is used, the water will drip down to a floor drain instead. Now the moistureless air will be reheated and blow out from top outlet back to the room. The cycle will repeat itself until a humidity level is reached.
Keep it downMoving on to the speed of sound. Out of the 3 fan speeds, expect subtle noise at low speed, audible noise at mid speed, and very loud noise at high speed. For night use, we will suggest using it in a low setting that will not disturb your sleep. Don't worry about any power shortage as TOSOT 70 pint dehumidifier will cover this part well. On the contrary, power consumption is pretty decent for an Energy Star 70-pint unit. If you need the capacity and plan to use it repeatedly, it will not fail you.
