I bought this one because my old unit bit the dust. I purchased the APEL70LT because I didn't like emptying the tank 2-3 times per day. This one comes with a pump. The instructions for operating the controls are quit easy to understand and I had the unit running within a few minutes after I installed it. The part that's not so clear is how to use the pump and whether to use a water hose which this one has an attachment or the pump hose that come with the unit. Currently I have it operating without the pump turned on. I am waiting until I can call Customer service to get clarification.I even searched YouTube to see if there was a video that would help but cannot find one at this time. Although I have a unit that has a pump I am not using that feature at this time. It works great and the water comes out of the water hose. I would still recommend this unit.

I bought 3 months ago a GE dehumidifier 70-pint that I use for my ~1000 square foot day-light basement (house built in 2007). The temperature in my basement is always between 69 and 73 degrees and the humidity varies between 40% to 60% depending on the weather. The dehumidifier appears to be high quality. The bucket is very large and the controls are easy to use and understand. The value displayed on the dehumidifier represent the current humidify. However, the value displayed is never the same as the one displayed by the â€œtemperature comfort monitorâ€� sitting on a table in the same room. My main complain I have about this dehumidifier is that it cycles way too fast. The dehumidifier runs for 5-10 minutes and then stop for 30 seconds and restart. I would have expected the dehumidifier to run for 5-10 minutes and take a longer pause before restarting. I really wonder how this dehumidifier can be Energy Star compliant. I bought the powerful 70-pint version of this dehumidifier to make sure that it could handle efficiently my ~1000 square foot basement without having to run all day. At this point, I donâ€™t believe GE dehumidifier 70-pint is very energy efficient since it runs all day with little to no pause.

I should have bought this a long time ago. Works great in my basement, what a big difference. I like having the auto pump and line to sub-pump so I do not need to empty it.
Good value for the features

I've been using it for about a month and have been very happy with it. It has well thought out features that work as they are supposed to. I haven't had any issues with it yet.

Bought this back in October and it seems to work just fine in my basement. It runs fairly quiet compared to my last one. I cleaned the filter once with ease.

I purchased this only a week ago but so far it doing great. We have a problem with to much humidity in the home. Fortunately, because we bought this humidifier, there is no longer a problem.
