    Had a few people ask how I have mine set up and a couple of pms, so finally got round to taking a few pics, it is nothing special by any means and pretty simple, but if it helps then all good.

    I have the RO unit on the wall above the toilet in our downstairs bathroom, plumbed into the sink water feed and down the drain of the sink, the output then goes through the wall into a water butt outside on the other side of the wall.

    Excuse the state of the downstairs bathroom, not lived here long and not got round to decorating it yet so its a bit of a state....

    Will be adding a larger DI vessel and probably a pump soon, so I haven't bothered to tidy it up much yet.

    Oh worth pointing out the floor where the butt is on the other side of the wall is quite a lot lower than the floor of the bathroom.

    Maybe 3 feet lower?

    Its the one on the left of the RO system.

    Comes out the tap at 450/460, comes out the RO at 6.

    With a PPM of 450 you should probably think about putting 3 pre filters in and a seperate large DI vessel as really your water should come out at 000pm innitially even if the
