When I used a continuous drip system I had about 15 feet of 1/4 inch plastic tubing, a regulator, a throttle valve, and a filter, between the tank and the household water. That was still illegal, but I felt since it was never turned off it was safe enough. If you have the incoming water go through a tube with a hole in it at the high point, that will also prevent any back flow.
