Attention to detail and amazing operation

We listen to our customers – after all, they are the people using our products in their homes and offices, and their feedback allows us to design units that are both functional and a pleasure and practical to use.

"The Meaco DD8L Zambezi dehumidifier impressed us by scoring well at extracting moisture from an outdoor environment, so it's ideal for garages or other out-buildings. It is nice and lightweight, so it's also easy to move about with the added help of a carry handle." Good Housekeeping Magazine Tried and Tested

Suitable for use in flats, apartments, all sizes of house, cellars, garages, boats, caravans, holiday homes and, in fact, anywhere you have a damp or condensation problem, the Zambezi offers more functionality, control and options than any other domestic dehumidifier on the market today. On its launch, it had no less than six world firsts for a dehumidifier unit:

  • The first domestic desiccant dehumidifier to have a digital display
  • The first to have a sterilising ioniser
  • The first to have the exclusive Meaco Energy Saving Laundry+
  • The first to have the Meaco Turn Me On function
  • The first to have the unique Meaco 20+ Control
  • The first to have a Daily Run Timer, On Timer and an Off Timer

 

The Digital Display

The easy way to programme and set your dehumidifier, the digital operation was the obvious choice for this unit:

  • Displays room relative humidity and temperature
  • Select your target relative humidity in 5% steps
  • Access to off and on timer function
  • Access to the unique Daily Run timer
  • Set the unique Meaco Low Energy Laundry+
  • Manage the unique sterilising ioniser
  • ‘Happy’ Zambezi and ‘Sad’ Zambezi on the display
  • The Meaco Timer+ for daily on/off running

 

Complete control over your dehumidifier

This is the feature that customers really wanted. Not just an off timer, but an on timer, and daily run timer, giving you complete control over when Zambezi turns on or off and allowing you to control your electricity consumption completely.

Want Zambezi to turn on and off at a particular time each day? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn on two hours after you have gone to bed? No problem. Want Zambezi to turn off four hours after you left it to dry the laundry? No problem.

No other dehumidifier gives you control like Zambezi.

Zambezi comes with a two-year parts warranty, which can be extended to five years.

 

The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation

The DD8L Zambezi Dehumidifier is named after a young elephant at the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Elephant Orphanage, in Zambia, which cares for elephants whose mothers have been killed by poachers. Zambezi was discovered in the swimming pool from a local hotel, having fallen in trying to drink. After rescuing Zambezi, staff from the orphanage and hotel took him back to the orphanage. Zambezi has now been weaned and has been moved to a release facility, in March, in Kafue National Park along with another elephant, Musolole, which takes him a step closer to living free in the wild. 

For every sale of a DD8L Zambezi, we will donate £2 to the DSWF to support their vital conservation work. You can follow Zambezi's progress via their website here

Brilliant Dehumidifier

Can't fault it. First and foremost it's great as a dehumidifier, particularly at lower temperatures. It also pumps out warmer air, so as a byproduct you need less heating in a given space. Features are really good as well, you can choose start and finish times if you wanted to turn it off overnight, or even run it only overnight when you might have cheaper electricity or just leave it run for a set humidity level where it will turn off when it reaches that set level, and monitor to turn on again when required. You can hear it, even on the low setting, but unless you are right next to it that's not a problem. Also laundry mode is very effective at drying clothes, the combination of warm air and it's ability dehumidify has it as a preference for me over a dryer as you get less wrinkles

Does what it says

Bought after having a leaking radiator soaked my carpet and underlay. I began using my sons one (he uses it in his conservatory when using a heated clothes dryer). As these jobs take time I decided to purchase my own. Dried the room out and carpet back down, simple to use. Light weight and very portable. Will use mine in the winter when using a clothes airer. Works a treat I was amazed how much water collected in it each day.

Most efficient dehumidifier for unheated spaces

Very happy with this product. The efficiency and ease of handling make this our go to appliance over the MeacoDry ABC 10L. It also runs quiet, does not require addition heating to fulfil its efficacy. The handle makes for easy moving and the water level ‘window’ is easy to see.

Good dehumidifier but not for drying out a cellar.

After reading reviews we purchased this dehumidifier to help dry out a damp cellar. It’s been on full blast for 3 weeks and whenever the water tank needs emptying and it goes off we are back where we were in terms of humidity. This is no substitute for lining your cellar and as you cannot block up air vents(we only have one and the person we spoke to at Meaco when we rang for help suggested blocking it up.A complete no no.) we feel this is not suitable for the purpose for which we bought it. An expensive mistake.

Outstanding

I live in Cyprus which everyone presumes is a hot climate. That is true for 10 months of the year. During the warm winters however the houses are notoriously cold due to their type of construction. Even with heating, this creates the right environment for mould and condensation. Since purchasing the DD8L Zambezi, there has been no condensation and no mould. A wonderful product which I highly recommend. I would add that purchasing from the Meaco store in Cyprus was a trouble free and excellent service.
