Answer: 
This unit is VERY quiet. Not sure what the Db is, but it makes less noise than any other unit we've had. Ours is in the basement, so noise level isn't a huge issue for us.

When I run any of my machines, you don't hear the DU at all but seriously I think that if it was in the living areas of my house it would probably be "white noise" meaning that after a little while, you won't hear it at all.

For my purpose it is a great unit as it really does keep my shop at 55% RH which is not the max setting by the way, but I think it's fine to keep my exotic lumber dry and my tools and machines won't rust...

Answer: 
No. The fan has to run continually in order to sense or detect the humidity in the air. The compressor shuts of automatically and restarts once the air becomes humid again.

Answer: 
The unit weighs around 40 pounds. Yes, you can use an extension cord. But it must be large enough to handle the load. Normal house wiring is usually 14 gauge. The larger number the smaller the wire. And also, the length of the cord also has an affect on the size needed. The longer the cord, the larger the wire size (not number) needed I recommend a 12 gauge extension cord. Do not use a 16 to 22 gauge Read More

I can certainly relate to the need to add solutions to a humidifier, but never to a dehumidifier. But, to answer the question: No. However, after years of service, if you use the internal container versus a drain to the outside, you may want to bleach out the mildew that will eventually form inside the container. We use our dehumidifier in a 600 square foot basement room. We have an external drain line, and it works great. Just set and adjust the humidity level as needed and then leave it alone. Read Less

70-Pint Portable Dehumidifier with Pump, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far, exactly what I was hoping for! I was looking for a dehumidifier that had a pump, for continuous use while RV is left over winter months, allowing for not having to empty the bucket. This unit performs very well, doing just that! Also important was digital (check!), adjustable (check!), auto-restart (Check! The power had gone out, and while the microwave in my RV was blinking, this unit had gone off and had restarted itself and worked just as it was intended - YEAY - Real life test of the Auto-Restart!) My first day of use, I didn't use the pump, but just allowed the bucket use. When I went to check on it the next day, the bucket was half-full and that was with me having the humidity adjusted to 60%. The digital readout was 59 then 60 and then again 59. Perfect! I hooked up the pump feature allowing the unit to drain up and into the sink. I adjusted the humidity setting to 40% and left it. When I went back to check it, not only was it draining perfectly, but the humidity setting showed 40% and the entire fifth wheel was DRY, DRY, DRY...no moisture feeling at all. Being in the Pacific Northwest, where it is very wet, this is a huge factor when considering performance of this device. I researched a lot of units and read a lot of reviews before purchasing this unit and am quite happy with it so far.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quiet and effective Purchased this unit for installation in the basement. It is not a wet environment, but does become humid in the warmer months. The prior unit that we owned (not the same brand) was very noisy and did not extract sufficient moisture, This unit is much quieter and does have to be emptied twice a day. The overall construction is more pleasing than a standard unit. I am somewhat concerned that the color (white) will dull over time. I will install and try the pump/external drain feature when I get some time.

This is a nice size dehumidifier purchased for a basement that measures around 1000 square feet that has 3 options for water drainage. The filter is very easy to clean as it just slides out and can be rinsed off. All of the controls are right on the front and easy to use. The only issue I have found is that I find it rather loud as the blower blows out the warm air from the top and seems quite noisy. I have had it about 3 weeks and so far it has done a excellent job keeping the humidity down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Far So Good I was looking for a competitive priced dehumidifier and this one fit the bill. All the specs met my requirements and shipping was free. Not covered in the specs though was the direction of exhaust air flow. I had my previous dehumidifier mounted just under the ceiling of the basement versus setting on the floor. This unit has the air discharge aimed upward where I have minimum clearance under the ceiling. The unit is working great and immediately brought down the moisture level. Will monitor the air discharge to see if I need to lower it about six to twelve inches. The gravity drain was easy to connect. Have had it for two months and definitely recommend it at this point.

However, it will heat up any area that it is placed in and It is very loud. I keep this unit in my basement but you can hear it running on my main floor. Also, if you do not attach a hose for continuous draining then your hands will get wet when you try to dump the tank due to the handle placement.
