    So I got my Spectrpure system in today it's the 90gpd refurn system and I got everything set and started making water. I am pushing the waste water into a bucket and the clean water into a Brute Garbage can. I seem to be making alot of waste water compared to the clean water is that normal? Like 15G of waste compared to about 5 gallons of clean.

    its a 4:1 ratio if you set it up according to the instructions. So for every clean gallon you waste 4.

    Your very welcome. Sounded like you had a product problem though instead?
