In Schuam's review there is the countercurrent and a slightly modified version of that (2 solute) for the renal mechanism.
Do I just go with the countercurrent?
Also, how is it that the distal tubule is hypoosmotic but yet water diffuse out into the surrounding tissue, what causes it to do so?

for ur second question, I think the reason is that the distal tubule is permeable to Na thus Na diffuses out making the interstitial environment hyperosmotic thus water diffuses out.
