    Cool. I used the first one (nail) and it was loose.

    The screw type should work if I add plastic expander.

    Have u used the screw type and is its opening right for 1/4" OD tubing?

    I've only used the nail ones but you're right, they pop out easily. Any where I can I nail it into wood. Door casing, shelving; stuff like that.

    You can also drill a hole in the ceiling and run it above the ceiling.

    I haven't used it before but I bet it would work.

    Well, after all that discussion, I ended up drilling a 0.25 in hole and squeezed the ro tubing into it.

    Is the pipe wall thick enough for taping? I have the taping tool i can loan u when we meet next week to buy your trigger system ato container.

    It should be thick enough. I regularly tap .065" material but that is stainless steel not ABS. If you can tap it, that would be much better than simply inserting it into the pipe.

    Yes I think it is thick enough. Home Depot didn't have the tap. Thank you for offering to let me borrow. Might take you up on that.

    So I drilled and tapped with NPT thread this morning thanks to a tap kit loaned to me from @Julius Chen. Very doable.

    Testing it out:

    Cool. I'd run the rodi tubing inside 1/2" pvc pipe in the crawl space, so rodents wont chew on it.
