How do you mix your RO water for a planted tank?

I'm currently running RO water and mix it back to a dGH of 4 using grumpy's gh booster and dKH of 3 using baking soda.
Just wondering how other mix there RO water in a planted tank situation when having discus?

i use RO and kent RO right for my discus at the store, but I would wager that grumpts is way better... also, discus are funny, if what you are doing is working, just stick with it in my opinion...

I mix mine in 4 gallon buckets. I add Equilibrium, traces and phosphates then let it sit for a couple of days
