    Default R/O unit

    I have a new R/O unit I am installing under the kitchen sink. Is there a trick tailpiece fitting I can use for the 1/4" polyflow drain line, or am I stuck with that "Rube Goldburg" saddle clamp deal?

    Found this:
    http://www.airgap.com/dishwasherAirgaps.htm
    And this:http://www.airgap.com/drainFitting.htm
    The double air gap looks like a deal.

    The "DrainBoa" appears to be just a fancy saddle tee.

    I sent my spousal unit down to their factory today, and picked up the dual air gap for $30+tax . She took our spendy Blanco trim with her, and it fits like the stock one. I install it Friday, and will report back how that goes. It looks like any brasscraft unit, and is UPC listed. Made in USA.
