Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BrandonAM works just as i expected
We purchased this after there was a problem with the current vent outside, so we turned to this as it was cheaper and easier.
It does create moisture on the walls but as long as you open a window or get a powerful bathroom fan as we did, the moisture is a tolerable level. This also makes our laundry room pretty dusty as the container only catches the big pieces of lint and not the fine particles.
I suggest purchasing your own straps aswell to fasten the tube to the dryer and container as the ones provided were pretty cheap. Overall this is a great invention and product!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Taxwizardo Well designed product
This was perfect for using in our full size basement area.We didn't experience some problems as previously posted. Be sure to check out the pieces to see exactly how they were made to fit together, especially the little spine in the back to go into the groove that it fits into. I attached the duct to the dryer first to see how long it was to determine where to put the mounting bracket.
It really collects lint well and heats our cold basement at the same time.Works great

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Minard Not for long term use.
This is OK if you need to get a dryer up in a pinch while you work out a long term venting solution. You are still dumping hot, moist air into your house, doesn't that sound exactly like what mold likes to grow in? This mostly just directs the exhausted air and captures some of the lint that gets by the trap. I used this until I could get a booster fan for my application and my dehumidifier was in overdrive when the dryer was running.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cruella Great little gadget!!
I would definitely recommend this. It was easy to attach (helpful hint-unroll the duct FULLY and be a bit careful. When it is FULLY unrolled it does slide on rather easy. MANY were complaining they had to buy a separate hose YOU DO NOT NEED to do this! Just twist as you are attaching this)
I also read a VERY helpful hint to get a bucket for the vent bucket in(they have one at Home Depot for $1.88 to place the vent bucket in and then NO worries about it tipping and spilling (I personally have mine then sitting on top of my mini freezer I have under my lil Haier dryer. :0)
I have physical limitations, so to have a lil washer that hooks up to my sink and rolls away easily for storage and a dryer makes life SOOOOO much nicer and easier!!!
Ohhh and since I have hookup the vent up onto my Dryer, NO MORE LINT, MILDEW on the walls OR UNBEARABLE HEAT. It REALLY does take care of all these problems.: 0) (don't forget to check your water level periodically) ALL at a GREAT PRICE!!!!!!! Happy laundry time!!!!!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nick It does work
As I said it does work. It is a tub of water with a removeable top with holes in it for the warm air to escape while the lint gets trapped in the water. The "heavy duty" 4 inch venting is not heavy duty imo. The plastic tub is flimsy. After seeing this you will admire the simplicity and think I could have made it better with stuff laying around the house. Which is what I will do when this breaks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by bubiken hard to close and needs to be checked frequently!
the item is good but its hard to close after you put water into it or if you use it in a tight space. the product would be much better if it were twisted back on rather than snapped back in place

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Diane440 Works just fine
I bought this with the Haier portable dryer as a "lint-catcher upgrade." Prior to that I had used knee-high stockings over the vent for about a year. I do believe this works better to (mostly) keep lint out of my kitchen, but if you have a lot of old knee-highs, might as well use those up first. :) I'm just sayin'.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WMaP Good Product
The unit was easy to assenble and install, and it performs as advertised. The packaging was in rough shape when I picked it up, but nothing inside was missing or broken. I did replace the plastic hose clamps that came with the unit with metal ones, becasue they looked flimsy.
