Since you have city water, contact the water company and ask for the results
of the last water quality analysis. You'll probably have to be routed
through a few "customer service clones" but they will eventually either mail
it to you, or point you at a website. You may be able to determine what the
problem is and correct it more simply.

I used RO for a couple years. It was more trouble than I could stand after a
while and was major overkill for the problem with my water.
