One of the dehumidifiers with pumps for basement is DeLonghi DE400P which has 40 pint capacity and is very ideal for up to 2,220 square feet room.

Most dehumidifiers from DeLonghi seem to have built-in pumps in their units, another model beside the DE400P is DeLonghi DD50P which can absorb humidity up to 50 pints. This one is also an Energy Star rated unit which means it uses energy efficiently during operation or in other words, it helps you save some money on your energy or electricity bill. The unit also features electronic control panel where you can easily read the LCD display, caster wheels, convenient carrying handles, a washable air filter, tank overflow protection and an eco-friendly refrigerant, plus anti-frost protection, which is highly needed by most basement dehumidifiers.
DeLonghi DD50P offers three distinct drainage options: Manual drain by emptying the tank manually once it has reached the capacity; Gravity drain using a 3-foot drainage hose included with the unit; and Pump drain by connecting the included 16-foot pump hose to the patented condensate pump system for continuous water removal with about 16 feet of vertical lift.
There is also feature which is aimed to protect the unit from damage caused by potential water overflows and also to maintain the optimum performance of the unit, that is the convenient water level window and a tank control system which is equipped with an alarm. Through the water level window you can easily see the amount of water collected and judge when the collection tank needs to be emptied.
In case there is an accidental water overflow caused by an overloaded tank, improper tank position, or an obstruction in the drainage hose, you dont have to worry about getting the unit damaged because it comes with a tank control system. Once such events occur, the alarm of the system will automatically make sounds and shut-off the unit.
The R-410A refrigerant gas of the unit is very eco-friendly; it does not deplete ozone and improves the units performance as well. As for the filter, it is washable so you can keep it clean from any dust and other airborne contaminants in order to distribute clean and dehumidified air throughout the environment.
