If you think about it, water makers are really only desalinators, they don't actually make water. All they to is filter out salt and other dissolved solids of their size. Anything smaller will remain, albeit, not much.
Which is why taking mineral/trace element supplements is a good idea if your drinking water is RO sourced.

Something else interesting about RO water compared to Distilled. The Ph of RO is 4 and the Ph of distilled is 6. Neutral Ph is 7.3. The Big RO machine I was running (7 GPM) had dissolved solids of around 60 Parts Per Million. So as you can see RO water is quite acidic.
