PS- the only thing I can guarantee you is that you will leave your RO running and forget about it and cause a flood,,everything else is research like you do and trial and error lol
what do you mean by this? i have a 10 gallon jug with RO water that i have connected to the ATO. No problems yet on over flow.

Its a common thing that happens, at some point or another everybody has fallen asleep, watched a movie, gone out etc and left their RO/Di unit running. Its not the ATO, that thing was a great purchase on your part.

Cool! Your lucky I see you're in NYC, the land of the best drinking water and lowest TDI readings in the entire state,,your filters should last you a long time.
