I run mine outside. I change 12 to 15 gallons a week and it takes about 20 minutes for the water change, and about 1 1/2 hours to fill my two 7 gallon containers.

I live in Minnesota from now until March it will be in the negatives outside. I wish I lived somewhere warm but until then I have mine set up in the laundry room and I will probably get one of those hydrologic shut off valves

Go for it man. If your water pressure is anything like mine in North dakota your probably only pushing 30 gallons a day. I leave mine running overnight in a 15 gallon tub.

Don't do it! I used to always think "oh yeah it will fill slow enough I will be all right" no way 3-4 flooded laundry rooms later I only fill while I can monitor it

Totally flooded my downstairs neighbors condo....twice!! I now put it in the bathtub as another has said. Even then, put a weight on the line, pressure spikes can flick the output line out of tub/ bucket.
