Does the LP1218GXR portable AC need water?

So, I've had an LG LP1218GXR portable AC unit for a little over a year now, and although it works great, I am curious of a few things.  One, it doesn't keep the immediate area of my living room (in an apartment) cool.  I know we've had some hot days this last week, so it may just be that.

I did clean both filters recently, but as I'm reading the manual, it talks of a drain port, which leads me to ask the following question:  does the LP1218GXR unit need to be filled with water?  And if so, where do I put it?  Thanks in advance for any and all polite responses to this inquiry.

    AdmiralBlindMan, you would not need to add water to the unit. The A/C may need to be drained occasionally from condensation build up.
