Replace the feed pump on your Osmolator auto top off with a water valve, which is basically a solenoid valve with 1/4" connections. There are two common ways to use the water valve; connected to a reservoir or directly to a water source like an RO/DI system.
Option 1: Install inline between a freshwater storage container and your tank or sump. When installed this way, the valve will open when the Osmolator is triggered by a low water sensor.
Option 2: Hooking the RO system up directly to the tank. There are two considerations for this.
First, the RO system is going to be turned on /off for short periods, so it won't operate the most efficiently due to the TDS creep which will consume DI resin faster. This really is a personal cost vs benefit decision.
Second, you're connecting a never-ending water supply to your tank which is not only a risk to your tank, but your home as well. While we can't eliminate this risk entirely, we can reduce it to the point that most people are willing accept it.
Watch the video for full details on tips to reduce the risks.
