cover, go to Step 2.

minimum ¹⁄₄" drill bit.
3. Attach a garden hose to drain hose connector.
NOTE: The garden hose should not be longer than 8 ft
4. Place the other end of garden hose into a floor drain. Check
to see that the hose lies flat and is in the drain.
NOTE: To use the bucket without the garden hose, seal the drain
hose connector with a garden hose cap.Water Level Float and Automatic Shutoff
All dehumidifiers have automatic shutoff and a water level float.
All dehumidifiers feature an adjustable water level float.
NOTE: The bucket must be properly aligned for the water level
float to work.
You can set the adjustable water level float at the “high” or “low”
position. Both settings will turn off the dehumidifier automatically.
To adjust water level, push float left or right until it snaps into

side of opening). The dehumidifier will shut off automatically
when bucket is ³⁄₄ full.
■Low—Slide water level float to the right side of opening to
make the bucket lighter to carry. The dehumidifier will shut off
automatically when bucket is ¹⁄₂ full.Normal Sounds
