Doesn't really need float valve. I have on off valves I use as well. Really needs that Check valve To build pressure in the auto shut off. Watch video. That is how I fixed my issue.

RO/DI is almost pure water, there is little to no additives to it it is more then safe for drinking buttttttttt the water is missing minerals that have been added that are good for human's such as fluoride and calcium but that doesn't mean we will get sick from drinking it or even die we would just have to find another source to suppliment the missing minerals. i use RO water as drinking water. my RO/DI unit have two valves one that goes to a tap for drinking water and another that goes through the DI resin for aquarium water

Exactly how I have mine. No reason to waste DI on drinking water. RO taste delicious. Have mine going to spicket I installed at sink and to my ice maker. I have a storage tank in crawl space.

Mpfaff77, ok got it to work, installation on their part was off by one sole piece of equipment. After seeing the video I found the problem, good thing I purchase it separately for another function, still wondering? The CHECK VALVE! Thanks
