- Turn off the dehumidifier. Pull out the water holding reservoir that holds the condensed water. Many styles have handles for ease of the reservoir removal. Take the reservoir to the nearest drain and pour the water into it. Replace the water reservoir and turn on the dehumidifier.
- Ascertain whether the water holding reservoir has a drain hose connection. Many modern dehumidifiers have this feature. If it does, acquire a water hose with a standard hose fitting that will connect to the fitting on the dehumidifier.
- Remove the end cap that covers the drain fitting on the dehumidifier drain reservoir by unscrewing it. Screw the water hose onto the drain fitting. Run the hose to the nearest drain and position it so that when water flows through the hose, it will exit into the drain. In this way, the dehumidifier will automatically drain and the reservoir will never have to be emptied.
Things You Will Need
- Water hose
- In all instances of proper automatic draining, the dehumidifier must sit higher than the hose where it meets the drain.
