What is the difference between this and the DD8L Junior?
The DD8L and the DD8L Junior are very similar dehumidifiers and share a lot of features. This model has the benefit of an ioniser and an antibacterial coating on the filter. Ionisers charge the allergens that are present in the air, which causes them to attract one another, group together and drop out of the air. This then results in them being removed through normal cleaning practices. Scientific research has proven that ionisers significantly improve air quality. The DD8L has an antibacterial filter, rather than a standard dust filter, which will further help to improve the quality of your air by killing allergens that come into contact with the silver nano coating, making this a perfect solution for those with allergies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meaco DD8L Bought this two days ago. Have emptied the tank twice. The humidity in our two bed bungalow was around 65pc. Within 5hours at max. setting down to 50pc. Now running at med. setting. The heater warms the hall and living space we have had no need for the central heating. Humidity outside is currently 87pc. And 57pc. Inside. Appears to meet all the stated claims. At med. setting is quiet enough not to be intrusive. I trust this will be a sound investment, so far it cannot be faulted.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very efficient but not sure about reliability I bought the Meaco DDL8 Junior from Maplin based on its Which recommendation and my very positive experience of Maplin. The device proved very efficient and worked well for about 360 days then just stopped working. Full marks to the very professional and friendly Maplin team at St Enoch's Square in Glasgow who very quickly arranged for a replacement under warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke within hours I purchased this on the strength of it being a "Which" best buy. It was for use in average 3 bed bungalow to see if we could get the RH level down from an average of 60. It was placed in a position in the lounge that did not restrict it in any way and the filter was in place correctly. About 3 hours after switching it on the fault light came on and the unit stopped. Everything was checked and the unit was then placed in the middle of the lounge to ensure no restrictions. A couple of hours later the fault light came on again. It hadn't actually managed to recover more than half a container of water. On contacting Meaco they couldn't offer an explanation but offered to have the unit collected. I returned the unit to my local Maplin store and their customer service was excellent but I chose to have a full refund as now do not trust the make. No faith in trying another one as Meaco quality control seems to be lacking.

Can the filter be washed or do you have to buy a new one?

Asked by: Jimb
Clean the filter with a vacuum cleaner and not with water as this will damage the anti-bacterial properties of the Silver Nano filter.

It says 8 litres in the main description but 2 litre capacity in the additional information. Which is correct!

Asked by: Oldbird
This unit is capable of 8 litres a day, with its 2 litre capacity it would need to be emptied to achieve this.
