I do not have a TDS meter as of yet. so what im looking for is what is the waste water output of the housing and what one is the pure water output? Thanks.

Hi Keith - Here are two pictures. The first shows you a view as if you were looking at the end of the RO membrane housing:

Some jargon for you:
"permeate" = purified RO water
"concentrate" = RO waste water

Remember that the permeate comes out of the center stem of the RO membrane - this pic should help you understand (rather then memorize!) which port is which on the RO membrane housing:
