Do you use RO/DI water straight out from its outlet??  Do you not
reconstitute the water by adding minerals back in before using??  Sounds
like you need a water softener.  The Kold Ster-il system is a water
purification which sorbs and restricts the following: Lead, Mercury,
Cadmium, Copper , Iron, Zinc, Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOC), tannins,
Proteins, Dissolved Organics, Chlorine, Pesticides/Insecticides, Metal
Particulates, Algae, Fungus, Giardia, Cryptospordium, and E. coli Bacteria.
Carbon can adsorb some of the above for sure, but not that extensively and
efficiently.  Also, RO/DI wastes a lot of water.  This system doesn't.  Use
some water softening resins in a pouch and put it in one of the system's
canisters if that suits you more.
