    I use a RO filter and two storage tanks. I highly recommend this setup once buying distilled water becomes a pain.

    What exactly do you mean by "automatic filler"?

    I got an RO unit off ebay for about $100 bucks. Great deal! Having pure water in my home is way better than filling up 10 gallons of water a week at the grocery store [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/mad.gif[/img] ! Plus, I can use the water to run my humidifier constantly. I just wish I could figure out where my darn unit is leaking from [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_h_32.gif[/img] .

    My R.O. unit fills a resevoir and has a valve that shuts off flow when it it full and opens again when the water level drops. Could that be what you mean by automatic?

    Just use the search feature on the top of the forum and you'll find a ton of posts with setups and suggestions for RO. Good luck!

    I have RO filtration that I use for plants and my mister. Looking for a filler valve that will fill my tank and shut off win full. I have seen valves that have a float that that opens the supply line to fill my tank, but what do you do with the waste water line? Maybe I need a solenoid valve connected to the float valve and to turn on the main water supply. I just have to find out where to put the waste water line. I guest I will run it out to my ponds.

    You should've bought one of these- http://cgi.ebay.com/AQUA-SA....iewItem

    They are cheap, come with everything you could need in an RO unit, and the seller answers questions. You are most likely going to need some part that you don't have, such as an auto shutoff valve that keeps sink water from backing up into the unit where you have the waste line connected.
