Couple of points....why not get a TDS meter and measure the minerals on your draw off point - my main water is around 220 and about 7 after RO filtration.
Then test you draw off for nitrates/ph etc
Or...assuming you are in the UK 'water board' costs are very reasonable its pence and yes its around 1:1 waste but I collect 30-40% of mine for cleaning and general use such as car washing/mopping etc
Are you using the desalination from a well, ocean, river? Do you know its source and mineral level/quality pre-filtration?
not much help but some suggestions!
