8L DEHUMIDIFIER
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Attention: This Dehumidifier is rated to extract 8L per day in an environment of 80% humidity and
temperature of 30°C. This is the world-wide standard for rating dehumidifiers. In New Zealand we do
not have climatic conditions with this humidity and high temperature. Accordingly the extraction levels
will be lower.
