    if you were going to do this may as well do Di only. the waste water has a higher tds, so overall end effect would be same.

    The normal one, water goes thru 3 sediment filters, then to ro membrane, one pipe coming out of ro is good, that goes to di, the other is waste, goes to drain, or in my case, the field, lol

    I would say the normal one goes through 2 filters, a sediment filter, then a chlorine (carbon) filter, the water then goes to the RO, which is the big one at the top of the picture. The pressure forces the water through a membrane, this is pure water and goes into the storage tank. The waste water is the water that doesnt get through the membrane, this goes out the bottom of the filter and out into the drain/garden.
