filter-direct RO unit

I just got the RO585 unit today and now I realize it does not have DI. Is RO water good enough or should I try to exchange for one with DI, such as the R6100?

RO is better than nothing but won't filter out a lot of the impurities in tap that can sometimes be present like no3/po4. If the cost to ship it back and get the RO/DI isn't too high then I would swap it out or you could add a DI kit to your existing RO.

So I bought the DI filter from filterdirect. I am trying to figure out how it hook up. Referring to the diagram at http://www.watergeneral.com/support/html/RD100.htm it appears I can either have separate RO and DI lines or I can hook it up so the DI filter comes after the RO. And then drinking water comes from the 4th stage. Is this right? I thought I could have RO/DI for the tank and then have RO for drinking. Is water that goes through the first 4 stages and then goes through DI filter what I should use for the tank? I hope I am making sense here. I thought this would be easier.

Never mind, I figured it out while drinking a few beers last night. I have fresh saltwater mixing and I'm drinking coffee made with RO water. No more carrying water up the stairs. Life is good.
