RO, diy auto topoff and feeder ?'s

I'm going to try a diy auto-topoff with my new tank and have a quick ? for folks who have RO systems as that will also be implemented. What kind of water pressure are you getting on the output side of the RO unit?

I'm planning on using a mechanical float switch running directly from the RO unit. I don't want to use the garbage can and pump method that is the norm, mainly because I'm weird and have no room for it.

On a completely different subject, has anyone tried the "pro feeder" for sale through dr. fosters? The one that floats frozen food and uses air to do a slow feed through the day?

The ouput of my ro/di just drips, so it can't be much pressure.
I don't use an auto feeder. That way I make sure all are eating

A lot of ripples make a wave

I get a quick dribble with my RO/DI unit but that is with a booser pump.
