Can I hook up a drain hose so I do not have to physically empty the bucket when it’s full?

Asked by Jason September 8, 2020
3
Answers

Yes. The unit has a well placed fitting for a drain hose. I have 2 units, one with a drain hose and one with no hose attached. Both are working very well.

Does this unit throw warm air?

Asked by Gordito September 1, 2020

Answers

Definitely.... The instructions even state that the unit can increase the ambient temperature around the unit by 5 degrees.

What is the range (min and max) that the dehumidifier can be set at?

Asked by Mark June 23, 2020
3
Answers

The lowest we get from ours is 30%. I've never seen how high I could set it. We want it as low as possible as it is in our basement.

Does this unit have a drain pump

Asked by Richard June 6, 2020

Answers

Yes, the unit comes with a hose adapter. You screw it onto a garden hose and stick it into the unit. I just ran my hose to the sump pump.

What brand/type of hose (specific details plz) is most compatible with this dehumidifier? Thanks. 

Asked by Kkmies September 17, 2019
1
Answer

There is no brand of hose that is specifically recommended for use with the LG PuriCare™ 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3, any 3/4" (outer diameter) threaded garden hose regardless of brand or manufacturer can be attached to the male connection behind the water bucket...^IFV

UD701KOG3 - How many square feet does this model cover?

Asked by jim77 August 22, 2019
1
Answer

The square footage that a dehumidifier can cover will depend on the moisture level for the room. As a 70-pint dehumidifier, the LG PuriCare™ 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 can be used for very damp rooms of 2,500 square feet, wet rooms of 2,000-2,500 square feet, and very wet rooms of 1,500-2,500 square feet. In some circumstances, a dehumidifier that seems slightly larger than you need may hold advantages. You can run it on a lower setting, possibly reducing electricity usage and bringing down your energy bills. A dehumidifier that you can run on a lower setting also means a lower noise level...^IFV

If the power fails then comes back on will the machine restart where it left off?

The ENERGY STAR® Qualified LG PuriCare™ 70 Pint Dehumidifier, Model # UD701KOG3 does have an Autostart for after a power outage...^IFV

Looks good. Operates more quietly than those I previously owned. Has “Auto-start” feature, which resumes operation after power interruption without pressing any controls.

Got just over 2 years of use out of this one.
When it worked, it seemed to do fine. But now that it has gotten more humid, it no longer works. Freezes up within 30 min. It’s been cleaned and there’s plenty of airflow, but it freezes up. There’s a fair amount of rust around the coils and down into the bottom of the unit. All of this probably indicates there is a refrigerant leak. These units used to come with a 5 year warranty, but no longer. Probably because they kept having to fix them. So instead of engineering it properly, they just decreased the warranty and left the consumer holding the bag

I never bought a dehumidifier so I don't have anything to compare this one to. It's doing its job and pulling a lot of water out of the basement in the last week or so we've had it. There are a couple things I don't like about it. First, I seem to always struggle putting the reservoir back in. The handle is nice and it's easy to manage even when full, but getting it back in at the right angle sometimes leaves me frustrated. The second thing is it continues to drip after you've removed the reservoir, so I've kept a rag handy to blot up the small puddle inside before putting the container back. I don't know if they all do this but it doesn't seem like the best design. It's a good looking unit overall, and I'm waiting to see how well it does keeping the basement drier. So far we're unable to keep up with the humidity and I'm sure that's due to continuously infiltrating humidity in our old, needs-a-lot-of-work basement. I plan to hook up a hose to drain directly to the sump pit and that should take care of both things I dislike about it. All in all I'm not sure how I lived without one so long.

Response from LGAnswersJun 26, 2018
We apologize for the confusion, a hose is not included with the purchase of this unit as the unit has a removable water collection bucket that can be emptied. If you wish to use a hose for continuous draining, use a 3/4" (outer diameter) threaded garden hose that goes into a nearby sink or drain. We hope this information helps. Should you need assistance, do not hesitate to connect with us directly via Twitter @LGUSSupport or Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LGUSA/ or you can give us a call at 800-243-0000. ^CP LG

Very nice design, quiet operation and convenient water bucket removal/install. Having a clear bucket makes it easy to see when its time to empty, and if you do not get there in time to empty, there is a pleasant chime to let you know its full. The unit also has well placed indented handles on each side to assist with moving the unit. While I have only had this about a week so far, it is working well. The real question is how long it will continue to work? Seems dehumidifiers only last 4 years any more. I am hoping this LG unit will last longer.
