The Whynter Energy Star RPD-501WP portable dehumidifier is a high capacity unit with an outstanding capability of removing up to 50-Pints of moisture from the air per day. With its water pump drainage option, large internal reservoir and environmentally friendly design, this unit creates a very efficient and powerful companion to any home or workplace dealing with high levels of humidity. This portable dehumidifier can be continuously operated with 3 drainage options; manual drain, gravity drain and condensate pump drain.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works well Purchased this dehumidifier based on others reviews and am pleased with it. It's being used in our relatively large (2000 sq ft) unfinished basement currently and is keeping it a constant 45% as set. We have unit gravity draining with supplied hose to our central air conditioning units condensation pump....so no emptying of bucket required here (which is convenient). Basement used to have a musty smell....which it no longer does....and was around 65% rh when we first turned the machine on. It took about 10 days to get humidity level down to 45% initially.....but has been easily staying there now and unit even shuts off for lengths of time now too. Works well. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good Buy Thus far this unit has performed well. I bought it for the pump capability, because I didn't want to drain water into my sump. The tubing for the pump is like aquarium tubing, so I was able to drill a 5/16" hole on the upper half of my main PVC drain pipe, and used a rubber grommet to insert the tube to drain. One caution, and one they discuss in the instructions - make sure the drain tube is fully inserted into the connector. I found out the hard way what happens when you don't - water all over the floor. Once I seated it correctly, it worked like a charm. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value This dehumidifier was a great value, with it featuring a pump for handling the collected water. It also provides the ability to use a standard gravity based drain hose, or a manually dumped bucket. I put it in a basement over 1,600 square feet and it dropped the humity down within about two days and is currently maintaining it at 45% without any problems. It also comes with a cleanable filter which features a silver coating to kill bateria and fungus. July 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A relatively quiet and efficient dehumidifier Given that I have had the dehumidifier for only a month, it has performed up to expectations so far. It is quieter than previous units I've had, and cycles off when the humidity drops, but periodicly cycles on to test the humidity level. It was very easy to install with the pump feature. Time will tell if it is more durable than others I've had. October 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by So far - Very Good Easy to install - the machine is in it's first week of operation and has already produced a notable change in our basement. The humidity level has already reached the rest of the house and the basement no longer seems damp and musty. Very pleased. August 22, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid product, as advertised The pump sold me on this model. Quiet and efficient. Screws for gravity drain hose were missing from the box. July 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works like a dehumidifier should Quick shipment as listed from site. Easy to setup being you really only have to make sure the reservoir is in then plug into outlet. Easy adjustments for humidity control. Only downside (which I really don't know if it is since I've only had it for 2 weeks) is the reservoir is sort of tough to get in. You have to force it and when forcing plastic into pre-designed slots, you run the chance of breaking something. Just make sure you flip the handle in the reservoir tank back towards you or it won't fit. Other than that, it really takes the humidity out of a room. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to operate, but door is hard to close. Easy to operate but door is hard to close. Very quiet operation March 24, 2015
