I have been researching RO systems lately and was wondering if anyone uses the following:

HydroGardener Remineralizing Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System

Tap Master Artesian â„¢ HydroGardener®

Advanced Remineralizing Reverse Osmosis System

pH Balanced Mineral Water on Tapâ„¢

Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener® Highlights

Exceptional Purification - removes up to 98% of chlorine, chemicals, heavy metals, sediment, and other contaminants that other systems fail to remove while adding good minerals to produce clean, pure mineral water with a neutral pH (pH 6.8 - 7.2)
Purified pH Balanced Water — restores 15-30 ppm natural calcium and magnesium minerals removed during the reverse osmosis process to produce clean, pure pH Balanced Mineral Water on Tapâ„¢.
Superior Design - uses modular filters where the filter element and the filter housing are all-in-one assembly for quick and easy annual filter changes. Just unplug and go, no wrenches necessary! Also, no permanent canister filter housings that can weaken and burst with age.
Advanced long lasting filters — 2,500 gallons or 1 year between filter changes. 150 gallon per day water production.
Pure, healthy mineral water quality with greater convenience, lower price and reduced carbon footprint when compared with buying bottled water.
100% total satisfaction guaranty for 90 days or your money back; 3 year limited warranty
The Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener® Advanced Remineralizing Reverse Osmosis system for hydroponics and gardening delivers pH Balanced Mineral Water on Tapâ„¢ by first stripping the water clean, removing 98% of contaminants using the reverse osmosis (RO) process, then channeling the water through the advanced remineralization filter to rejuvenate and restore lost calcium and magnesium minerals. The Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener®creates the best possible water for your plants and garden. Guaranteed or your money back.

One thing you will notice about the Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener® is that our filters are incorporated into the filter housing, so that when it comes time for the annual filter change, the filter, and the entire filter housing, are disposed of. This is to reduce the possibility of leaks under your sink. The leading competitors "canister" type RO system keeps the same filter housing year after year, subjecting it to constant high water pressure, water erosion, and wear from maintenance. Only the filter element is changed. After about 5 years the walls and seals of the competitors canister filter housing can begin to weaken and decay, eventually failing, potentially causing serious water damage to your home or business.

The next thing you should notice about the Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener® Reverse Osmosis hydroponics and garden water purification system is the high grade coconut shell carbon filters designed to yield a year or more worth of purified water, and filtration down to 5-microns. The competition typically uses lower grade filters made from less effective coal carbon with one 5-micron filter and one 10-micron filter. The competition also uses unnecessary extra filter stages and recommends multiple filter changes per year in order to compensate for their lower grade.

In designing the HydroGardener®v Reverse Osmosis hydroponics and garden water purification system a sophisticated combination of flow restriction components were integrated into the system architecture to regulate pressure to and from the 150 gallon per day membrane chamber for optimized water purification and minimized water waste. The most sophisticated components certified to NSF (national science foundation) standards are included in the design and construction of our products.

Connect the HydroGardener® Reverse Osmosis hydroponics and garden water purification system to your storage tank, irrigation system or hydroponics vessel with an available float valve.

The Tap Master Artesianâ„¢ HydroGardener® Reverse Osmosis hydroponics and garden water purification system is a premium product designed to convert your tap water into pure, healthy water for your plants. The advanced membrane used in the Tap Master can safely eliminate up to 98% of dissolved solids, metals, and up to 99% of harmful chemicals from your tap water.

My question is will the added cal/mag hurt my plants or should I buy the system that gives as close to 0ppm as possible. Most of the grow journals I see ppl adding cal/mag. Any advice would be great. I need an RO system that will give me a minimum of 150GPD if someone has a better recommendation.
