My situation isnt as dire as yours, but I lost power last night too and because I had my outlet sitting too far down in my tank it back siphoned my sump full then spilled about 30 gals of water on my floor. Luckily I had some water already mixed for a change so getting the tank up and running again was no big deal. My carpet need a good cleaning anyway.

Good luck with your power Keith

ARRRGGG!!!!

After using my premix to fill my tank back up I turned on my RO to refill my container. I dont have an auto shut off and I went home without turning off my RO. 2 days in a row Im having to clean up spilled water.

When i turn on the RO to refill the sump I force myself to sit there watching it until it fills to the line. Otherwise I'll forget it's going and wander around....
