My unit did not come with an outlet waste valve. You can take a TDS (Total Disolved Solids) reading with the valve wide open and see how close to 0 your output water is and then stop the waste valve down and see the difference.

That's the one that I use. You won't be using it very often so it's great for spot checking.
