Hello, this is Dave. You need to run it long enough to confirm that the water properly is draining into the sink and not backing up into the dehumidifier. After that point it can be left indefinitely as it will cycle off when the humidity setting has been reached. Just make sure it does not move from vibration and pull out the hose or tip over if you have it elevated. Mine is in my basement on a concrete floor running all the time and draining to a floor drain. It does move slightly after a few weeks.
