Re: Tiny Dehumidifiers

I'm a big believer in these little dehumidifiers. I've been using one for many years. It's about the size of a loaf of bread. I had a horrible mildew problem until I installed it. It dropped the RH from about 80% down to just over 60% in my little cabin. I also just drilled a small hole in the tank, stuck a piece of aquarium air hose in, and ran the hose to the sink drain. No need for a thru-hull fitting in the tank.
I seem to need a new one about once a year. The fan died on my first one and I was able to replace it with a computer fan for about 12 bucks.
