Soleus Air DP2-70E-03

Suffering from a damp and over humid atmosphere anywhere in the home can be a very uncomfortable experience. It can be damaging to your health as well as furniture, walls and floors. The Soleus Air DP2-70E-03 is a 70 pint dehumidifier is designed to do away with these problems once and for all. It’s highly efficient in mid-size rooms and has many automated features to make operation easy.

Review Details

The DP2-70E-03 has a dual option for water removal. This can be done via the containe or it can be connected to a standard garden hose for continuous gravity drainage. When using the manual option, the unit will alert you to a full tank by way of a light and audible alarm. It will also automatically shut-off until emptied.

When first using this model in very damp/wet areas, the continuous drainage option is recommended. Once a healthy level of humidity has been reached simply use the digital control to set the desired level and the unit will shut on/off thus maintaining a comfortable and dry atmosphere.

What We Liked

  • Dual Drainage
    This dehumidifier comes with two options for drainage. Manual with an 8.5 pint container, and continuous drainage so you can connect it to a garden hose via the connection at the back.
  • Effective De-Frost Option
    This model is capable of running at temperatures as low as 41 degrees Fahrenheit. If ice begins to build up, the unit will shut-down and the fan will continue to run until the frost has melted.
  • Power Loss Protection
    Should power be interrupted once resumed, your unit will re-start at the same settings as before.
  • Tank Full Indicator
    If using the manual drainage option, the unit will automatically shut-off and alert you by way of a light and audible alarm.
  • Advanced Timer
    Set the DP2-70E-03 to run for between 2 and 4 hours after which the unit will automatically shutdown.

What We Didn't Like

  • Small Tank
    TheDP2-70E-03 will remove up to 70 pints of moisture per day. The tank however, will only hold 8.5 pints. This is just one reason why Soleus Air has included a continuous drainage option.
  • Heat
    The unit will give off some heat, especially when working at the optimum level. However, since it uses a compressor to help with efficiency, some heat should be expected.


The Soleus Air DP2-70E-03 dehumidifier rates well above average among consumers. It’s highly efficient, and considering the amount of auto features included, it has been revered for ease of use. It’s also highly portable with sturdy casters and compact design. Most other models of this capacity cannot boast the amount of features this one does, making it a very sound buy indeed.
