The WatchDog 900 is a sizable dehumidifier that will remove 90 pints of moisture per day from your larger crawl space. It is powerful enough to remove moisture from areas up to 15,000 cubic feet and produces a 370 CFM airflow. It also features strong, durable handles for easy manueverability. The front is easily unscrewed for access to the coils for cleaning or to replace the sensor.
Crawl spaces are typically built underneath your home and are likely to invite pests and moisture in. Although crawl spaces allow for easier access to pipes, other problems such as dampness and darkness are inherent. These issues often lead to mold growth, which can be very unhealthy. By sealing or encapsulating your crawl space, removing any mold and mildew and installing a crawl space dehumidifier, many of these issues can be easily managed.
This dehumidifier is Energy Star Rated and can operate in a wide range of temperatures from 33°F - 105°F. It also offers a wide range of Operating Relative Humidity Levels from 36% - 90%, though a typical setting is between 50% and 55%. You can also choose Continuous Mode so your dehumidifier will run constantly. A lower humidity level is used in this mode. The WatchDog 900 has a rated Condensate Capacity of 90 pints per day (at 80°F and 60% RH). The digital touch pad is easy to use and setting your humidity level and mode is simple.
The WatchDog 900 is meant to be installed in a larger crawl space, near your sump pump or other drainage area. A 12" drain line comes standard. The unit must be elevated to some degree to allow for water to flow through the gravity drain. It requires a 115V, 3 prong GFI outlet with a 15 amp time delay fuse. It should be placed in an easily accessible area with clear access for routine maintenance. You will also need to be able to direct the exhaust out of the space. If there is a particularly damp, out of the way area of your crawl space, the warm exhaust can be vented there to help dry it out.
Maintenance is easy on this dehumidifier as well. It uses a washable filter that simply slides out from the unit. Once the dehumidifier is open, the the coils can also be cleaned.
We have all experienced frozen condensate on our portable dehumidifiers. The condensate freezes and the machine shuts off until it evaporates. The WatchDog 900 has Hot Gas Bypass which prevents condensate from freezing on the evaporator coil. The HGB diverts the refrigerant vapor to the evaporator side, ultimately preventing frost from forming on the coil.
