    Here's a vid but I forgot to address a few things in it so here goes:

    Looks like you have the unit without the DI filter so your clean water will exit right above where you have G labeled. Just pull that blue plug out and stick in a white piece of tubing, cut it to length to fit your needs. There should also be a second exit right around there that tosses out the water you wont want. Stick a black piece of tubing in there and have it lead either into your sink or wherever you'd like it to be disposed.

    I found the O ring (black piece labeled D) to not be of use to me. The bag labeled E, should have all the parts you need to connect to the faucet, just choose the piece you need. One fits on the inside of the faucet, the other on the outside.
    Most importantly set a timer!! I've forgotten countless times to come back and check on the jugs and the filter runs for no reason (what a waste...). I did this overnight once...

    Thankyou thankyou thankyouthankyouthankyou! Got it together and am gonna give it a whirl once I get the dirty dishes washed and out of the sink (bathroom sink doesn't have anything to connect to on the faucet). YAY!!!!!! I've got my 5 empty gallon jugs waiting from today's watering ready to fill (all the neps, orchids, sarrs & vft's).

    edit: do you think I should get a DI unit to attach to my RO stuff? I was wondering if it makes much difference or no...

    Glad to hear the vid helped. Snap a picture of yours when you get a chance and update us as to your experience with it. I'm sure others to come will appreciate it. Here, mine or a new thread would be a great idea I think.
    Btw one of those jugs should fill in about 20-30 mins. Also the manufacturer recommends letting the first 5 gallon drain away just so wash out the filters first. I did so with 1 gallon rather than 5 and had no issues.
    Hope your next post isn't about flooding! LOL
