These are Quest remanufactured (refurbished) units, not new units. These Quest units were remanufactured directly at the Quest factory, and get a 3 year warranty directly from the Quest brand. Many of the issues tended to be minor or cosmetic. Quest Dual 165
is in fact the industry's first 230 volt commercial dehumidifier! Like all Quest
products you have the option of placing it ground level for plug and play operation or hung overhead up and out of the way.
The Dual 165
is one of the most energy efficient dehumidifiers out right now performing using minimal amps (4.1) and maximum efficiency (6.8 pints/kWh).
Made in the USA for highest safety and environmental standards
The Quest Dual 165
is UL-listed and ETL certified. Manufactured in the USA and built to last, it comes with a five-year powertrain warranty. The Dual 165 uses environmentally-friendly R410A refrigerant. Created using high environmental standards allows the Quest Dual 165
to create reusable water that's safe to use on consumable plants.
Produces Reusable Water
Quest dehumidifiers produce very low TDS water with neutral pH. This water is safe to reuse for all plants, even consumable ones. (With Best Practices)
Best Practices to Reuse Condensate Water
Run your dehumidifier if it's been idle first
If your dehumidifier has been sitting idle, run it for three days before using any condensate water from it. (Dehumidifiers that are allowed to sit for more than a couple of days should be dried out as completely as possible, to discourage mold growth.)
Test condensate: Be sure it's free of contaminates
Contaminate levels should be low enough and well within acceptable limits as long as your dehumidifier is in good working order and has proper filtration. It is always a good idea to test condensate water for heavy metals, nitrates, and bacteria – and state law may require you to if you are a commercial grower.
Keep your dehumidifier and filter clean
Quest dehumidifiers will produce condensate water that can be used as-is, as long as you keep the filter in place and clean regularly. Dust, bacteria, and other pollutants can contaminate condensate water if the dehumidifier's filter is absent or not maintained properly.
Keep your dehumidifier running continuously and recycling water
Why? Because just using and reusing condensate water over and over again keeps it clean. Only if you always
use a high-quality, clean air filter during operation, the constant recycling of the dehumidifier's condensate water discourages mold growth. Keep the filter in place, and follow the filter guidelines for it; clean or replace the filter as directed.
