Yeah I have mine inside my shed in the back yard and run the water hose out there to it.

I have mine mounted to the wall in my laundry/utility room with a splitter on the water line to the washing machine and a valve to turn it on and off. Sometimes I run it directly into my 20 gallon bin but more often I fill 5 gallon jugs (the kind you can get at Home Depot) and pour them into the big bin or top off bin or wherever I need more water. The advantage to having it hooked up near the washing machine is I can also run the RO unit down the laundry drain if I need to flush it because it's been a while since I ran it.

I just got my RO/DI from Melevsreef as well. Planning on sticking it in the laundry room too. Love I can make RO, for drinking and RO/DI for the tank. Got a 2x4x4 going to anchor it to some studs and then screw the unit to the 2x4. Also got some coat hooks for hanging the tubes and wrench.

I agree...where ever you put it just keep in mind that it will generate more waste water then pure so make sure you have a place for all the waste water to go. Mine is mounted in the basement near a floor drain I have so my waste water is routed out of the house and into the back yard.
