RODI Install help needed!

Just got a new 5 stage RODI system from BRS. Now its time to do the install!
Didn't get it done last weekend, so taking it on this weeked.

Still don't know how to get water to the Brute I use for mixing my saltwater.

I've got the setup with the 3 gallon storage tank and water dispenser that mounts to the sink. Surely there is a way to re-route the water after the DI unit before it goes into the storage tank? Maybe some sort of switch that will let me direct the water to the mixing can vs the storage tank?

Any ideas/suggestions? Photos would help too

Search the BRS videos. They have one that goes over this exact situation.

Oh and if you don't have one already, get yourself a float valve and install it on your brute. Best thing ever.

I put up a video on YouTube of how I did the install:

Thanks guys. I found the BRS video of my exact system. It was easy breezy. Made so much more sense than the written instructions.

How would the float valve work?
