The drip emitters are fed directly from the waste water exit from the RO
unit. The pressure is still derived from the mains pressure. The RO water is
collected in a drum and dispensed manually either with a pump or by buckets or
cups, If I did not need any RO water for the few tanks that need it, I would run
it directly from the water main pressure.
