That's where we need them and leave in all year - like you. Also in wardrobes. I think one moisture source is the en-suite for us as the outside and inside of the doors are always wet after showers, washing etc. Even though we always keep door closed and open window afterwards. We have no extractor fans.
Mosquito, I don't think these disposable tubs ever overflow because they depend on the measured quantity of crystals absorbing a quantity of water. Or if you are referring to the electric de-humidifiers - I think they have a cut out that shuts them off when full.
Hi, I wasn't sure but that makes sense.

As the end of the season approaches for some, have a look at my first post, grab a coffee and read through the thread too for some hints and tips to help you to be thorough and organised when closing for Winter, or just safely closing between visits.
Please take time to read your *Winter Cover Dates* in your insurance policy. There will be stipulations that you will be required to follow. Your site will have its own stipulations too.
