I need auto fill tank for RO filter

   I got an RO filter recently.  Problem is, we have to fill it from a
1 or 5 gal jug manually.  I would sure like to have some info on
building a DIY water storage tank that would turn the RO unit on when
low, and back off when full.  I think it could be done with a 5 or 6
gal plastic water bottle, with a spigot installed in the bottom. I
hear the best type of float switch is actually an air column pressure
switch.  That would have to be rigged to turn a solenoid water valve
on/off.  So if I could find a source for a suitable air column
pressure switch, and an electric solenoid valve to control the inlet
water line, then I would be all set to build it.  Or maybe there is a
tank kit I can buy? Ideas?

Low tech solution.  Turn the supply bottle upside down with the bottle neck
immersed in the filter pan?

I've seen setups like that for a pet's water bowl.  Whenever the level gets too
low water flows down from the inverted bottle /
reservoir.

Is this a gravity feed system you are suggesting?
Is the tank pressurized? Is the filter? Do you ever
back flush the filter? A dual action level switch
may be better suited. Can you provde a link to your
filter?
