Reply to "Have you cut a magnet?"

Funny how the discussion evolved into dehumidifiers.  I have had 2 of them replaced on warranty in the last 5 years.  1 was about 5 years old and was under recall for fire risk and the other gave some code, which also indicated some sort of failure covered by warranty.  In both cases, I got full refunds, even though one was 5 years old.  

I understand about the ease of running them into the drain / sump, but I stopped doing that 5 years ago, when the one that was running into the sump crapped out, but the fan continued to run.  My other one was on the recall list and I had disabled it and was waiting for the refund before getting another.  So I had no operating dehumidifier and did not realize it, until I discovered mildew growing on my gargraves wood ties.  I just thought it was very humid that summer and the single one running was not up to the task.  A mistake I will never make again.  Went out and bought 1 that day.

I now have two 70 pint dehumidifiers running in my basement, neither draining to the sump.  It takes 2 to 3 days for both to fill up and trip off.  However, I know they both are running!  The gargraves track is long gone, replaced with Lionel tubular, with steel ties.
