I've just bought a Meaco DD122 direct from Meaco for £149.99. I've been in one of the large B & Q stores today and they have exactly the same machine for sale under their own brand name for £99.99. Bummer!
So, if you're thinking of getting one, get it from B & Q and save yerself 50 beer tokens!
Incidentally, mine's branded as Prem-I-Air although it came direct from Meaco.

Anyone about to buy a dehumidifier?'I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered! My life is my own!'

As I have said in earlier post. My B & Q one caught alight and if I had not been there just imagine what could have happened

Before you all rush out to B&Q, it is not unknown for some retailers to get re-badged or exclusive items built to a price using different (lower quality) components.
Not saying this is the case here, but it does happen.
Do your research first - if the product has exactly the same model number you are probably fairly safe.Seamaster30 (Was willson)

FWIW I bought a desiccant dehumidifier from Boatsheen (£150) after reading previous threads. It is small, cheap to run and restarts if the power goes off/ put on a timer. Very pleased with it so far and would highly recommend.There is absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.

My Meaco unit is working beautifully and the boat inside is delightfully dry and warm. It drains into the sink and cuts in and out as the sensor dictates.
The best £150 I have spent in ages.
