We were impressed immediately on how quiet the Delonghi 50 pint dehumidifier (Model: DD50P) was and hardly noticed when the compressor turned on. The built in pump feature is nice if you need to drain the water against gravity like out a window, upstairs, or into a sink. However, if you just want it to run into a floor drain you can connect a hose on the back and bypass the pump. Finally, if you wish to manually empty the bucket when it is full you can do that also.
