Our basement has had difficulty with water in the past, from intrusions through the side (fixed by gutters) and chimneys (fixed by chimney caps). Most recently, however, water has been collecting on and dripping from cold water pipes and the basement refrigerator on to the concrete floor below. The amount of water isn't massive, but it's significant enough to cause a problem in and around the affected areas.
The problem, obviously, is humidity. We have placed a 30 pint Frigidaire dehumidifier in the basement, but the problem is that on humid days 30 pints doesn't go very far. We have to empty it some days twice, other days three or four times in a 24 hour period.
Update: Sorry, part of my description got cut off. The dehumidifier can be hooked up to a drain unit, but I'm not sure where or how to drain the water safely. We don't have a basement drain, the sump area lacks a pump and also is where the radon remediation system works, and so the only thing I can think of is to put the dehumidifier on a shelf and gravity drain it with a garden hose out a window, which obviously isn't ideal from an aesthetic standpoint.
So, suggestions welcome.
