The RO membrane removes not only harmful pollutants but also a few helpful minerals. As a result, a standard 5 stage RO system produces slightly acidic water with a pH of 7. 0 or below. Alkaline mineral filter produces alkaline water with restored healthy minerals such as natural calcium, magnesium, and potassium ions, which ph.-balances the RO waterExperience clean, safe, and good-tasting water every time you turn on the faucetThe Alkaline filter can be added to any under-sink water filter or RO systemRaises pH levelUpdated FA15 alkaline mineral filters are built with a secure push-fit quick connection, which allows faster filter replacement.

If you're concerned about it, might as well test yourself. See this video: https://nutritionfacts.org/video/testing-your-diet-with-pee-purple-cabbage/

You could also use a cheap pH meter like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00PU0W35K/ref=ox_sc_act_title_3?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A2KV19AYUKS3X0

If you're worried about metabolic acidosis, just eat more vegetables: http://nutritionfacts.org/video/increasing-protein-intake-age-65/

If you want to take it a step further, you could install a RO water system, like this one with 6 stages. The 6th stage is an alkaline remineralization filter, and you could buy more of the alkaline filters and daisy chain them until you get to your desired alkaline pH level (using the aforementioned pH meter).

There is nothing proprietary about the filters and they are self-contained in their own disposable housing so there so assuming your system is using the standard 1/4" outside diameter water line tubing, you could easily add it to your system without needing to replace the entire thing.

All you would need is to get two sets (4 total fittings) 1/4" quick connect water filter fittings (which you reuse every time you change the filter) and the filters; pH filter post carbon filter (doesn't have to be these brands, any similar filter will do the trick if it is good quality). For install:

  1. Screw the quick connect adapters onto the filters.

  2. Shut off the water valve heading into the filters as well as the valve at the tank (same process as when you change the filters).

  3. Open the faucet to depressurize the system and get as much of the water out of the line as possible.

  4. Cut the line between the tank and the faucet.

  5. Connect the now split water line onto the quick connect adapters for the post carbon filter.

  6. Cut the line again between the faucet and post carbon filter.

  7. Connect the now split water line onto the quick connect adapters for the pH filter.

  8. Open up the water valves at the tank and heading into the system.

  9. Shut off the faucet when water starts coming out again.

    Worst case scenario is you might need additional 1/4" tubing if you don't currently have enough excess line to route the line to a place you can support the additional filters so the water line isn't supporting their weight and they aren't put in a position where the tubing can kink. They make filter clips so you can mount them on top of the RO filter and even each other if you are trying to figure out where to put them. The only reason I could see as to why you may need to replace the entire system is if you wanted to add an additional stage pre-RO filter as those housings are different so you can't just add an additional filter without swapping a 2-filter housing for a 3-filter housing and at that point it may be more economical to swap out the entire system.
