    My origional plan was to use a water softener....but they add sodium instead of minerals...

    Sadly yes, that's the cheapest I found. You can pick to buy the system without the DI filter and spend $30 less.
    In terms of initial cost and cost of filters in the long run this is the cheapest I've found.

    De-ionization filter. Not a necessity but it does filter out everything that gets past the membrane and sediment filters. It will give you pure 0 ppm water until it's time to replace your filters. Without it you'll still get almost, if not, pure 0 ppm water.
