Reverse Osmosis (fluoride mitigation) Water Filter Query Summary & Revision Request

Hey CM.com Community,

As an update and revision to a previous post on Water Filters that remove fluoride and chlorine...

The Big Berkey, Katadyn, St. Paul Mercantile and Dr. Mercola products were excellent recommendations if you needed a travel or portable water filter, one that did not need to filter for fluoride, lived in a property where a an entire house filter was an option and/or were not necessarily looking for something that attached to a kitchen counter top or under the the sink.

However...

I need one for use in a condo/hotel kitchen counter top or under sink, in an area that has less than desirable tap water quality, heavily fluoridates its water and in where the unit that can serve the dual or multi-purpose of providing clean drinking water, filtering the water from the faucet for washing fruits & vegetable/cooking and/or could possibly be connected to an ice maker or fridge if desired.

It seems like a Reverse Osmosis (RO) water filter seems like the best option for this specific case. I understand that travel and portable ones meet other or perhaps even most needs.

Anybody have any experience with one or recommend a particular nmodel that fits the criteria and needs above? Am I missing something or incorrectly assessing the best fit?

Also, I've read conflicting info on whether or not minerals should be added to the RO filtered water for ideal drinking purposes. Is this necessary or simply a water nutrition enhancement option? 

I'd really appreciate some quick precise feedback on this as I'm looking to purchase one this weekend. Any heads ups on good sales would be very helpful as well. Thanks in advance!

Best,

JG

UPDATE: Looks like a viable option for the needs I listed is...

the Premier Reverse Osmosis 5 Stage Water Filter from Costco.

Seems like it does the job and not a bad price.

Just in case anybody was interested. Please do post any other suggestions if you have direct experience with another model. Thanks.
