So, to paraphrase, the supply line from the faucet goes through the RO system, to a reservoir that is pressurized, which is kept from pushing water past the solenoid until the solenoid opens it up while the MistKing pump is on, and the MistKing takes it from there, and when it's done the solenoid closes the line.

What I don't understand is, why do you need a (pressurized?) reservoir between the RO system and the solenoid? If the faucet's constantly pushing water through the RO system anyway, is there a reason you can't just subtract the reservoir?

Forgive my feeble understanding of how water works.
The reservoir mist king tells you to use needs to be above the pump for gravity pressure to work. A reservoir of an RO unit is filled and then shuts off the incoming water.
