RODI excess

So I picked up a RODI unit today off of Craigslist for $50 (with replacement filters included!!). I am curious what others do with the higher flow excess water that comes out. I'm thinking of storing it, but looking for some creative ideas others have done. Thanks!!

Sounds like a good idea. Anybody use it to fill freshwater tanks? Is that a good idea or bad?

I don't think it would hurt. But flushing toilets, watering the garden, and washing dishes are all options

Thank you all for the responses. Just wondering if there was something amazing out there. I won't be using it for the freshwater tank then, bummer on that one. Guess my trees will enjoy it then.
