SELF-DRAIN­ING DEHUMIDIFIER

The Family Handyman - - HANDY HINTS -

If you for­get to empty the tank on your dehumidifier, it’ll ei­ther over­flow or shut off. That de­feats the whole pur­pose of run­ning a dehumidifier in damp ar­eas. I didn’t have a floor drain in that part of the base­ment, so I bought a con­den­sate pump ($40 to $100 at home cen­ters) and tub­ing and rigged it to my dehumidifier. Then I ran the tub­ing up to the ceil­ing, through the joist ar­eas and down to the laun­dry tub. Now the dehumidifier runs full time, and I never need to empty the tank or worry about it shut­ting off.
