Kent Reverse Osmosis Barebones Quesiton

I am setting up a Kent RO machine and the directions are not that hot. What has everyone done with the waste water line? I am not sure what to do with it. I don't have a drain close by to tap into and I want to set it up permenantly with float valves in my refugium and back up tub of salt water. Any one have a RO that can give me some advice?

Collect it and use the waste water to water your flowerbeds, or wash your clothes.

Remember, depending on your house water pressure, you are going to generate a LOT of waste water. You don't need larger that 1/4" tubing for the waste water. Try routing that along the baseboard to a drain. You may not be able to pipe it directly into your sump if it's not close enough to a drain. A lot of folks collect RO/DI water in a separate container with a float switch and dispense out of there into portable containers. You may not be able to get everything set up the way you planned.
