    Just to reiterate guys - As you know, the waste water is under pressure, so you can route it pretty much where you need it. Just be sure that when all is said and done you are still at something near a 4 to 1 waste to permeate ratio.

    I kept that in mind and selected a variable drip rate head of 0-14 gph to ensure I wasn't adding any pressure to the line that would reduce the waste to permeate ratio
