RO/DI Piggyback System
 
Do they make a piggyback systems for a 35gpd system. I'm looking to reduce my waste water (guilty conscience I guess). The system I have is a Kent Marine HI-S Maxxima 35gpd.

Here's a link to see some pictures of the unit.

"This is the normal method of plumbing dual membrane systems but it should not be looked at as a water saving device, membranes must still be flushed at 4:1 waste ratio or they fail.
It also requires at least 65 psi available to the first membrane or it will not work, many dual membrane systems use a booster pump to attain this pressure.
I ran a dual membrane Spectrapure system for a couple years and it was nice if you need the extra water in a hurry, I could make 250 GPD at over 99% rejection rate but still at the normal 4:1 waste ratio."
