Remineralising RO water

What do you use for remineralising RO water?

Currently use Tropic Marin Tropical but itís no widely used & instructions on dosage are awful, any help would be great

Currently I am using individual salts from NILOCG - CASO4 for Calcium, and MGSO4 for Magnesium. Went to Amazon for K2CO3 Potasium Bicarbonate (raises KH level)
I use https://rotalabutterfly.com/nutrient-calculator.php to calculate how much of each I need for a given amount of RO water.
Currently I bring my RO water up to the following;
Ca=20ppm
Mg=8ppm
KH=1 degree
