I cant help with the colors since there is no real offical color coding standard. but you should have a supply and two outputs. one output is your clean ro water and the other output is your dirty waste water. route the clean ro water to a storage vessle and route the dirty waste water down the drain.

When its running you will have much more waste water than clean ro water so when in doubt the output thats making the most water is the waste.
