Design and Size

Friedrich D50BPA has a simple but elegant design. The moist air intake comes from the front but dry air is venting out through the top of the dehumidifier. D50BPA model has a cleanable air filter in front of it and 16.2 pints (7.6 liters) large water container below the filter. As you may already notice that’s way too small for 50-pint Dehumidifier so you have an option to use continuous drainage. At the back of the unit is a continuous drainage outlet and drain pump outlet.

Friedrich D50BPA weight is 44 pounds 20 (kg) and you can move it with built-in handles or casters.

Dehumidifier Size:

Height: 23 inches / 58 cm

Width: 15 inches / 38 cm

Depth: 11 inches / 28 cm

Noise level

As I have read many customers have said that the unit is a bit loud at high speed. You may desire to reconsider running it on low when you’re home and shifting it to a higher speed (if required) when you going.

Maintenance and upkeep

Friedrich D50BPA doesn’t require much maintenance. Clean filter when needed, empty water bucket (if use this draining method) when full and that’s it.

From time to time clean all dehumidifiers, check if there are no leaks, clean water reservoirs.


Friedrich D50BPA is an excellent dehumidifier for mid-range spaces. It has all you need – a lot of features, a couple of drainage options, easy transfer, and reasonable price.

My name is Ryan. I have had a hard time dealing with my allergies. Happily, I found that an air purifier was effective to ease my allergy symptoms. I spent a lot of time researching the best air purifier. I know how hard it can be to find the suitable one. During the reading period, I also read a lot about humidifiers and dehumidifiers. I learned the mechanisms behind the technologies as well as the manufacturers and organizations within the industry. I now feel convinced that I have built a guide that shows you all you need to know about air purifiers, humidifiers, and dehumidifiers. So I came up with the idea of creating this website.
