You are getting a lot more waste and a lot less good water without proper pressure.

If your community uses chloramine that can take out a RO filter. The water cutoff valve should prevent any waste water once the output line has pressure in it.

I think mine works half the time. It must be on right....but I have seen waste water running out after the float switch has stopped water from filling the drum.

Major disaster

They are notorious for going bad. Try another one. Something else that helps is a two gallon pressurized reserve tank. This steadies the pressure on the output line.

on top of that it's snowing hard now in less than a hour we got over a inch and this is to go on till tomorrow nite they say anywhere from 8 to 12 inch by the time it's done , stupid ground hog was way off this year
Sorry to hear that Seaweed. That's no fun at all. Hope you can get all that water up. Set up some fans to blow on that carpet to. That will help dry it. Snow in May! That's unheard of around my area. That makes things even worse. Yikes!

Funny you should,say that sniper. When I had a sump on my 125 freshwater tank. My husband would wake up and go searching for a leak until he got used to the sound.

Major disaster

Get a cheap water sensor designed for hot water heater leaks. Place it in the bottom of your cabinet and it will wake the dead if there's a real leak.
