My mom is a health nut and she is going to buy an ro/di unit because she read that you shouldn't drink tapwater from the sink because of all these reasons. She gets something out of it and so do I. Good deal.

Then make sure it's the one with the holding tank. That version has a bypass valve that extracts water prior to the DI.

You don't want to keep drinking DI water. Not healthy. RO definitely. DI, no.

I just got an RO system with a DI and i was wondering why it is not healthy to drink. Is this something that i should really be concerned about?

if you got a RO with DI, chances are there are two outputs. one is RO and the other is RODI. Drink the RO.

I'm no health expert, but the idea is that RODI is essentially a strong solvent and will strip nutrients out of your blood. maybe this is a myth, but it's often repeated. either way RO is clean (and tasty) enough for me.

The holding tank gives a few gallons of either, and I have a nice tap to use from drinking.
