Waste water goes directly into the sewer drain and I cannot measure.
Maybe a Google search can answer your question.
Of course it is dependent on total usage. Waste is a certain percentage of total use.

The inefficiency of RO is the waste water which is a concern only of you have limited water supply.

Both my homes, one in Baja and one in Colorado have either well water or very high dissolved solids water. My system in both places the water for human consumption is exclusively RO and water for all other purposes is the supplied water or the well water. Of course we have to live with hard water and the calcium buildup on faucets and spray heads. This means ongoing maintenance. I consider the waste water for the RO systems in both places as trivial. The RO system like we have can be bought at the building supply place for a little over $100.
After many many years of these systems I have no reason to change.

Good info. Thank you.
