According to the who (world health organization) you should not drink ro/di water. It can have long term health effects. You shouldn't drink water with less than 28 Tds. Google it.

Now do you think the coffee or tea would make the difference then to make it safe?

Well I would actually think that's ok. The who article is based off third world country's. So your diet is providing you with the nutrients you need. I have read though that there are bacteria associated with di resin. But if you have seen no issues thus far, your probably ok. But I'm guessing. Not much research on the subject.

Read on this website and heard this before that "water with <75 TDS can seriously affect your intestinal track, and the lack or low level of minerals can cause other health problems, etc."

Is it Safe To Drink RO Water?? You'd be surprised.. - 3reef Forums

I could understand if that's all you drink having a mineral deficiency but as a pot of coffee I don't think it would be an issue since I drink other things during the day along with the food I eat. I guess ill let you guys know if I get sick lmao

Our water company installed a rodi unit under our sink just so we could have drinking water, otherwise our water has tons of nitrates... So I don't see why it would be bad for you

It bad because water with very low to no TDSs is a solvent. Not only will it have no minerals it will absorb minerals your body needs. you can get re-mineralization cartridges on amazon that will make it much safer to drink. That's what I do.
