Test your RO water for PO4.
They also (you LFS may have one) meters that will test your TDS and will give you a general measure of water quality.

The only thing with a TDS meter is it measures total disolved solids...... Are they good or bag that is the question......
I run my DI till I get a TDS in the high teens then I change them out.....
Membranes can last up to 3 years.. how old is the unit.
You only have a RO unit??? if so it may not be removing all the bad stuff from the water..
