Reviews

I ordered mine directly from the company after calling to ensure that they were in stock. I emailed them with 2 additional questions and received prompt and helpful answers. Set up was easy and quick. There was plenty of tubing to reach up to the oil filler of the Lycoming IO-360 in my DA40. The attachment seems air tight. I used a little tape to secure the tubing to the cowling and then turned it on. I didn’t remove the cowling. An indicator light is indicating normal function. and there is another indicator light if abnormalities occur. The dipstick is removed and I stored mine in a new plastic garbage bag. The unit itself is a real “black box.”. None of the internal mechanism is visible. So far so good.

Q: What power source is required, I see a cord with no prongs on it?

It uses standard 110v power.

Q: Product is listed "WITH ACCESSORIES" however when adding to cart you are given the option to purchase an adapter. Is that in addition to one that it is already included?

We have updated the page. One adapter is included with the kit purchase.

Q: Does the DryBot filter the air that is pumped through the engine?

The DryBot treats the air and filters the air prior to it being introduced into the engine. This way we can be sure clean air with the desired humidity level is achieved before it gets to the engine.
