Answer: 
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

Answer: 
Yes. It comes with everything you will need to do that other than the garden hose. Of course, it needs to be above the drain point as there is no pump on the unit..... it drains by gravity.

Answer: 
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.
Have not been able to get it to drain thru the hose....

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.

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.

Answer: 
It shuts off automatically when the water tray is completely full. Then when you empty the tray, and reinsert the empty tray, it starts back up again. I hope this answers your question. But it does have adjustable settings on it, and I'm thinking you can adjust it to shut off auto.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 230 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good dehumidifier, good value This dehumidifier does what we need it to do. It lowers the humidity in our finished basement. We have not used the continuous drain option. Some people have complained that the bottom of the bucket is not flat, therefore you cannot set it down. While this is true, I have not seen this as a problem. It is rather loud, but it is white noise, and we don't have it in a bedroom. You should also be aware that it does raise the temperature in a room. In fact, we have used it in the laundry room to help dry out washed strollers, kids' shoes, etc. We have been using it for 8 months now with no problems. August 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 70 pint Dehumidifier Does a great job of dehumidifying my basement, easy to use,hopefully it lasts. i find these quit after a year or two which is why I went for this cheaper model. SO far so good. August 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keystone dehumidifier Since my previous dehumidifier stopped working, things were getting a little moist in my basement. I checked in consumer reports and this was on the top of their list. I had it delivered and it was ready to go within minutes. It's been doing one heck of a job - sometimes having to empty it 2 times daily. Its very quiet and working beautifully. I would highly recommend this unit. August 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works very well easy to use. Very easy to set up and use. I just forgot to check the packing and remove bubble wrap from inside tank which caused no problems just some wet bubble wrap. Otherwise fine. Works well. We had to move it from one place to another and it rolled easily on its wheels. Easy to empty. Ordered online and had it shipped to Maine store. State of Maine was giving a $25 rebate for energy savings. August 8, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Great unit if it lasted Looks quality, very quiet during operation and sucks out the 70 pints in a 24 hour period. Very impressed with its operation because it turns off when it reaches the set humitity point unlike other units where the fan is always running. Now to the bashing point. Only after 1 summer of use in the basement (3 Months) it died. I found out the following summer. Looks like it lost all the refrigerant. So the only thing to do was throw it out. I have been through 3 different brands in the last five year period, every unit just made it out of the warrantee period before it failed.It is a marketing deal amongst I think, all the manufacturers to make them last a little longer that the warrentee period to fail just to sell additional units. I bought it again because it does the job well and price, at least until the warrantee runs out. After this one goes I may have to move to a drier climate. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by works well. No assembly required The dehumidifier works very efficiently. It is quiet and easy to empty. The settings are self explanatory. I like it so much I may order another one for another area in my home. August 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product This is the best dehumidifier I have ever had. Previously I had a GE 50 pint which last for 1 1/2 years. It was noisy and never stopped running. The Keystone 70 pint does a much better job, is less noisy and actually shuts off when at times. August 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works great. Does the job. Keeps our basement from smelling musty. We are happy with this dehumidifier. We have had it for about 2 months now and it is working well. August 9, 2016
