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 246 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by It is much quieter than a GE 30 Pint dehumidifier that i had previously, and much more powerful using the same wattage. Its quick to absorb moisture from the air, especially if you have it blasting on continuous. I haven't set up the hose in the back but doesn't seem to complicated. My only complain would be that the water vestibule feels a bit flimsy when you take it out filled with water. A sturdier build would make this 5 star product, but for the price I cant complain much. Also has a auto-defrost option that activates automatically if it senses that the temperature is below 40 degrees to make sure that no condensation freezes on the coils inside. Really nice feature! Definitely recommend. October 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Loud! I'm torn on this one. The one we bought most recently started making a loud noise every time it came on, which was frequently. We replaced our last Keystone dehumidifier after 5+ years of reliable and fairly quiet service. In the latter part of its life, it was making a tremendous racket and finally was not working. It lasted its warranty period and that was it. Man-made obsolescence... We thought it did well for the cost so we bought the same one again, only this time it didn't last a week before it started making too much noise to watch a movie or talk to someone in the same room. We returned it and had great return service from Home Depot, but we will probably not buy a Keystone product again, based on this experience. October 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very quiet!!! Have had it for a month and am very impressed as to how quiet it is compared to the national brand we had before. Just what we were looking for. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good value...excellent features The dehumidifier was at least $100.00 less than models that didn't have the features I wanted. For example, when it reaches the humidity level set, the fan shuts down unlike most of the others. And the hose feature for continuous draining was far superior. October 18, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy set up. Runs quietly. Very efficient in drawing moisture from the air. October 25, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Keystone 70 pint Dehumidifier So far seems to be a awesome product for the the price. October 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by An Excellent Purchase A recently built detached garage that was having a high humidity/mold problem. My wife purchased this product to address that issue which it is doing perfectly. The humidity was reading into the high 70/low 80 percent over our hotter than usual Virginia summer and within a 24-48 hours of using this product, the humidity maintains a steady 48-50 percent. While this dehumidifier has a drain feature, I opt to empty the water bucket as needed so I cannot speak to that feature. Overall, we are extremely satisfied with its performance, easy of use, quality and it was the right price. September 6, 2016
