What is the drain size to run in copper for Zenith ZD300 dehumidifier. The inspector will not let us use a garden hose for drain as per you instructions. Fire hazard, we have to run a copper drain. What...

Fire Hazard? How can a rubber hose that drains water, be a fire hazard? This inspector is jerking you around. Since there are no copper fitting that will fit the connector, use a flexible stainless steel water water supply hose, that's normally used on an automatic washer. You'll wind up with 2 female ends, but that won't matter. Be sure there is a rubber washer in the end you connect to the unit's hose connection and only tighten it enough that it won't leak. If you over tighten it, it will crack or brake the plastic male connector.

Just for my own information, why is a building inspector necessary for the installation and approval of a portable dehumidifier? You can respond bu clicking on the Comment link. Thanks

How do i make it continue to run with no bucket so it does not fill and and so i don't have to empty it

Attach a length of garden hose no longer than 5 feet, to the threaded drain hose connection that was supplied with your unit, to carry water to the drain.
1. Remove the drain-hole cover on the back left side of your unit.
2. Connect a garden hose to the threaded drain hose connector.
3. Push hose connector tightly to the drain-hole on Rear Grille with the arrow on the tab pointing UP.
The hose attachment will accept a standard garden hose fitting.
Do not over tighten the hose when connecting it to the hose connector,
use a rubber washer and tighten by hand firmly without stripping the
plastic threads.
When being attached to hose connector drain hose connection,
do not bend or kink the hose. The hose should lie flat from the
dehumidifier to the drain.

I have a danby ddr7009ree humidifier which I am trying to drain with the hose in the back however water just keeps filling in the front bucket. I have removed the rubber plug from the back of the unit.

The continuous drain hole (where the hose is inserted) is clogged. To remove the clog, you will need an 18" long plastic Zip Tie (or something similar. But NO wire cost hangers) that will fit into the hole.
Insert it slowly and push until you reach a bend in the tubing. You will need to gingerly work it past this bend until the Zip Tie bottoms out or you run out of Zip Tie. Then, while rotating it, pull it out slowly. As you reach the end of the Zip Tie, be prepared for some water to follow. Also make sure that the drain hose, when reinserted is not crimped and the end is lower than the drain hose connection. The unit does not have a pump. It relies on gravity to drain water through the hose.

Hope this helped you to solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

My Dayton Dehumidifier drains out the hole designed for a hose connection. How do I get it to drain into the container in the unit?

If you want to use the bucket to collect the water cover the hole in the back where the hose to dispense water outside would normally go. You need a rubber cover that will fit tightly, it should have come with the unit.

I need to know how to attach a hose to the Goldstar DH305 Humidifier

There should be a spot on the water tank, that is threaded to fit a hose, but is blocked by a piece of plastic. You must remove the plastic "plug", the connect a hose to it. Also there is a "special" part that could be used. This part can be found at, and I am sure other places also. I hope this helps

Water from LG 30 pt dehumidifier drains into reservoir instead of running through garden hose into floor drain like it is supposed to. Have obstructions to garden hose. Very frustrating...must...

(assumming you are not an idiot, like the other solver suggested) you may very well have it connected to the right spot, many of these units, are not balanced well, (or are balnaced all to well, depending on how you look at it) The imbalance, basically makes the water drip to the front, instead of the back. Try to put something under just the front of the machine, to tilt it back, ever so slightly. Good luck

When you install the drain tube, be sure that it is placed into the drain hole in the dehumidifier. You then will be able to "latch" the tube at the hose end by lowering onto the outer hole opening. This maintains a tight connection and the water will drain properly.

Water tank still gets full when connected to floor drain

Check the fitting where you connect the drain hose to. It may have a plastic seal that must be cleared out in order to use the hose drain. The plastic seal can be easily punched out.

My hose connection is leaking water

Jonathan, first unscrew the hose connection. Now look into the end of the hose for a rubber seal. The color of the seal may be black or green or red or yellow or some other color. Does this seal exist at all? I once had purchased a hose and found out the seal had fallen out sometime before I got it home. If the seal is there, remove it and get another seal. They are inexpensive, but usually must be purchased in quantities of 10 or more.
