Answer: 
The capacity value ( 50 pints versus 70) is the amount of water the unit can remove from the atmosphere in 1 hour. It is Not relevant to the size of the bin / container.

Answer: 
I have 3 of these units connected to a couple of solar panels. The water drains into a water collection barrel that is used to water my lawn and garden every 2 days via a drip hoses.
The extra 2 1/2 gallons the 70 pt (8 3/4 Gal) produces over the 50 pint (6.25 Gal) is worth the small price difference.

Answer: 
The method of draining has nothing to do with the volume of water the unit will wring out of the air each day. By the 70 if you need to dehumidify a larger area. The price difference is pretty small so I'd go for the larger unit.

Answer: 
The pint rating is not about the amount of water the reservoir holds. It is about the amount of water it will take out of the air in an hour. So a higher rated dehumid, will remove more humidity. Better for more humid and/or larger spaces. If an area is very humid and has a lower rated dehumid in it, then then unit could potentially never turn off - using more electricity and reducing it's life.

I've been thru FIVE other dehumidifiers in 15 years... so I should have previously tried a 70 pint, since they ALL conk out after a year or so!! They ALL only have 1 year warranty... after that YOU are responsible for paying costs to repair... and most of my units stopped pulling water from the air, fan may still run, but main unit won't... not worth the cost to pay someone to do nothing much about it.

Regarding the problem of it filling the bucket rather than draining through the hose (my unit was doing that too), I just found a little rubber plug that is probably supposed to go over a small whole in the middle of the unit (I think the water comes from their into the bucket). The rubber stopper fits over the small hole tube. I just placed it on and I'm betting it will now drain through the hose. I Read More

it does have an adapter kit - however in my case it starts to drain thru the hose and then for some reason stops that and fills the bucket. It is on continuous operation......
There is no blockage in the hose and it is at a lower level.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 198 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Meh I use this dehumidifier in the garage, where I do my woodworking. With both doors to the garage closed, this item's readout shows 10% - 15% relative humidity lower than the room humidity. I have an accurate analog hygrometer (with %relative humidity) in the garage. The two are always 10% - 15% apart, with the dehumidifier reading less than the hygrometer. The included hose attachment is difficult to insert in the unit. The attachment is supposed to go through a hole in the back, and surround a shaft on the inside of the unit (in the lower compartment where the bucket is). The unit shaft and the hose shaft are the same size, making it difficult to slide the semi-soft hose plastic over the hard unit plastic. Much of it has to be pushed, almost forced in - and even then, does not go in all the way. Otherwise, this unit does what I need it to do. At least in the Florida winter (it's January now). As long as the humidity in the garage is 50% - 65% while I'm working, and the paint is drying, I'll keep this unit. (I'm working on a chess/checkers/backgammon set, and need to paint the chess pieces at the moment - and paint/stain the rest of the project when needed. Plus, other planned projects. So I'll need to keep the humidity within an acceptable range.) January 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Buy I live near the a river where there is always a lot of moisture in the air and so far i love it. I been using this for 2 months now and this works flawless May 23, 2016

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Dehumidifier I purchased two of these for my two un-air conditioned garages in Galveston, TX. I had a bad mold problem in my garages and nothing would ever dry out after fishing, etc. I plumbed them through the walls with PVC fittings and they run 24/7. It can be 85% humidity outside, and I open the doors to the garage and it will be 40% inside. They have been going for about four months, the mold is all dead and the garages have lost that musty odor. Boat ropes, life jackets and all other boat items are now stored in the garages and are mold free. One dehumidifier also controls the area inside my downstairs wet bar. I have a 80 lb. stainless steel ice machine, large stainless steel beverage box and two head frozen drink machine which do not sweat anymore! My neighbors are getting them as well - awesome product!! April 11, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great While it Lasted I bought two of these units and was very happy with them until they both failed. I liked the position of the air filter which made it easy to remove and clean. The unit was relatively quiet as dehumidifiers go and certainly did a great job. Unfortunately the first one failed after 8 months. It lost its refrigerant and stopped working. The second unit failed after 11 months and began freezing up then it too lost its refrigerant. I received a full refund for the first one and I've submitted the paperwork along with cutting off the electrical cord and sending it in to get a refund on the second one. The company informed me that they no longer manufacture this unit. I think I can guess why! I've had such poor luck with dehumidifiers over the past several years. Is it really that hard to design and build one that lasts more than a year? April 11, 2016
