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

Stopped working after a few hours

Rubbish. I purchased one of these and received it yesterday. I read the manual and then set the dehumidifier to laundry mode. It seemed to be working fine when I went to bed. This morning I checked it and found it had switched itself off. I emptied the water from the tank and tried to restart the unit but it won't switch back on. I have tried plugging it into different sockets but the machine seems totally unresponsive. So I have spent over 200 quid on a product which stopped working after a few hours' use. I have contacted customer services but they don't seem to be in a hurry to sort the problem out. I am afraid I cannot recommend this product. Not very impressed at all.

Excellence in a box

I have had two dehumidifiers (not Meaco) prior to purchasing the Meaco DD8L and, whilst I have only had it for just over a week, I cannot fault it. It is simplicity itself to operate and appears much more efficient at removing moisture from the air than my previous machines. In addition, I think it looks quite stylish as far as dehumidifiers go. The fact that you can select a specific humidity as a target and see the current humidity together with the temperature is, I feel, a really good feature. I look forward, hopefully, to many years of functionality from my new machine.

So happy with the Zambezi!

We have been using a DD8L dessicant dehumidifier in our cellar/boiler room for a couple of years, and it has done sterling work. We have now also invested in a DD8L Zambezi, to use for drying clothes in our utility room while the cellar is being waterproofed after repeated flooding. This new dehumidifier is even better than the previous one, which is saying something. The digital display is really helpful, as is the carrying handle. The machine is stylish and incredibly efficient. I am always amazed at how much water it extracts from the air, and the ioniser feature is invaluable for dealing with mould spores which have started appearing. I thoroughly recommend the Zambezi, it is excellent value for money.

Good Product

The Zambezi is very efficient dehumidifier and is very effective at drawing moisture out of the air. My model can collect 2-3 litres of water a day.
