  • Increased monthly water bill
  • Switch off all your faucets and listen if there are any sounds of running water.
  • Check if your water meter is ticking over even after switching off all taps.

The machine produces the driest air with low vapor pressure to increase the evaporation rate. Desiccant dehumidifiers are the most suitable drying equipment to use when the temperature in affected areas is below 60°F.
