DD1 Simple Control Panel & Features
Rotary Dial Control Panel
With a rotary dial control panel, you can set the humidity level between 35 per cent - 80 per cent RH. A guidance for your humidity setting for low, medium, high & laundry (continuous) drying is marked.
Set medium (2 water droplets icon) to set at approximately 50 per cent RH. Set Laundry for drying clothes and so on. But remember to set back to medium after using the laundry mode.
Economy Turbo Switch
ECONOMY - maximum energy saving and quiet operation. Use for normal daily routine and night time.
TURBO - for rapid dehumidification of high humidity or severe damp problems. Once damp problem is controlled, switch back to Economy for energy saving.
Auto Restart Function
DD1 Simple is able to automatically restart for example, after a power failure.
Once the power is restored, the dehumidifier will continue to operate at the selected settings.
Very useful if used to dry your boat, caravan or unoccupied properties in the days before using them.
Filter is easy to remove, sliding in and out easily for quick regular cleaning.
The filter traps dust and needs to be cleaned regularly (every 2 weeks) to keep the dehumidifier dust free. Clean by gently brushing or use a vacuum cleaner.
Portability is an important consideration when purchasing a dehumidifier. You may want to move the dehumidifier from room to room.
Whilst the the DD1 Simple lightweight at 6 kg, it is equipped with a collapsible carry handle to make portability more manageable.
The DD1 Simple has a 2 litre tank capacity, positioned at the side of the dehumidifier like a drawer.
There is no need to move the dehumidifier when removing the tank to empty. There is a lid covering the tank to avoid spillage and a carry handle for ease of carrying.
Continuous Hose (optional)
You can use the hose provided (one metre length of 12 mm diameter) to drain the water directly to a drain or sink to save emptying the tank regularly.
You need to remove the knockout at the back of the dehumidifier and pass the hose through and attach to the connector.
Anti Tilt Protection
Safety is regarded as a top priority when selecting your dehumidifier.
The DD1 Simple is equipped with a Tilt over safety protection where it powers off automatically when the unit tilts over to safeguard you and avoid hazard.

Is it a design fault inherent in EcoAir products? Are there just a faulty batch of units out there? Whatever the reason, it's a shame because so many of the features of the DD122 and its predecessor were ideal. Out of the box, it weighs a lot less than those by other manufacturers, and at well under 40db, it's also near-silent in normal mode. The loss of a 2hr/4hr/8hr timer (compared to older models) is slightly offset by the easy-to-use dial system, which means no endless beeping noises when using the unit. The handle is rather awkwardly designed, being closer to the operation panel than necessary, but it is still very portable.
Ultimately, all of this proved irrelevant as within less than 14 days - and after settling down to only moderate use on Normal mode for an hour here and there - the unit developed a sudden nasty rattling sound, and then refused to power on despite turning the dial to every possible setting.
So yes it's light, it's compact, and while it works it's wonderfully quiet. But it doesn't last. Quite how products this unfit for purpose make it out of the factories is extremely puzzling.
After checking that I could, I've attached the unit to a low cost digital power timer plug and we have it running on the ECO medium setting each day for three hours. Our washing dries twice as fast as it used to, meaning that it can all be done in less time with less fuss.
I highly recommend cleaning the filter as often as you can manage, as I've read that a lot of people have problems with it breaking down due to the desiccant stone filling up with dust and fluff and no longer working, we clean ours every couple of days.
All in all we've found it to be a very simple, easy and effective piece of equipment requiring only a couple of minutes attention every few days. We've never owned a dehumidifier before, so we have nothing to compare it to.
The only downside or improvement we could find was that it doesn't allow you to pour the water reservoir without pulling up the lid, which seems clunky to us.
All in all if you can find better then buy it, if not, buy this.
It can bring humidity in an average sized room from about 60% to 45% in a couple of hours on the low setting, without being too loud... I don't think it can bring it less than 40% or how much time it would take, but something between 40-45% is enough...
The "high" setting is even more powerful but quite loud.
Be advised that these types of appliances are very energy consuming and you'll definitely notice on your electricity bill. The story is that it helps keep your heating costs down because dry air is easier to warm up, but overall you will be consuming significantly more. After 3 months of using this my electricity bill went up the roof so now I'm using it only a couple of hours per day before going in bed...
I was a little concerned by reading a number of reviews from users complaining that it broke down. Given that the manufacturer offers now 2 years of guarantee I only hope that it will not be the case anymore...
