i wouldn't say it tastes horrible, the DIed water taste lighter and fluffier, but drinking it all the time isn't always good, it removes all the essential like floride that are good for us

And regarding the final product of straight RO, ammonia? Please expound on this!
Your city's annual water report should indicate what's added to the water.

While not the primary focus, this article includes information on ammonia which results when the carbon stage breaks the ammonia-chlorine bond of the chloramine and that the ammonia can pass through the RO membrane:

I'm probably overly cautious but I change out my DI resin when the RO/DI water registers 1ppm. There's no telling what 1ppm is comprised of. I only use 0ppm RO/DI.
