Im thinking i might just have to work on my unit. I gave up on it for tonight but in half an hour i got one gal of good water and about 8 gallons of waste... With that ratio it doesn't seem cost effective to me for large scale.

I was using the hose outside but it was leaking quite a bit. It felt like there was still a good amount of pressure going through even with the leak.

There is something wrong then, it should be MUCH more than that. I'd contact the seller
