8O I usually do 50 gals at a time, so sitting and watching would be hard to do 8O

Well if that was the case, I would force myself to install a float switch with a level sensor and shutoff.

Or, if you typically know how long it takes to fill, set the timer on your stove or microwave so at least it can remind you to look.

I'm going to get a float. I'm tired of cleaning up water.

The tub I fill with RO is in the basement, 2 feet from the floor drain. When I forget my RO is on (which is often ) it doesn't make much of a mess cause it's so close to the drain. I've got a rather low volume RO filter, i think 25 gallons/day... so watching isn't really an option lol.

I don't know how fast a typical RO makes water but if I watched mine, it would be like watching paint dry. I put mine in the furnace room too since there is a drain in the floor.
