RO filter and auto shut off

Hi all,

So I know there are those auto shut off things out there but my question is this.

I have a portable RO unit which is working great. There is an input, a "bad water" output, and a "good water" output.

I can hook the auto shut off ball to the good water output easy enough, but that leave the bad water running forever.

What type of setup do you have that you are running the auto shut off ball? Are you running this to the main line that feeds the RO unit then pumpt the good water back into a barrel?

Www.bulkreefsupply.com ... Think this will help, there is a video to show you how to set up the auto shut off. I do it with mine, and it sounds like you need the one way fitting. It keeps the ro from constantly running the waste water constantly when the good water is shut off.
