best way to mineralize ro water

Hi, i just set-up my a dirted tank yesterday using all; RO water. My tap water is very hard with a high PH. Whats the best way for me to accurately re- mineralize my RO water?? can i do it with Household products or should I buy a product such as RO right. I suppose i could mix with some of my tap water, but i don't want to second guess the ratios all the time. could i use sea salt?? Thanks for any and all help.

what type of fish do have determines your KH & GH goals,

I use Seachem Equilbrium to set my GH and Seachem Alkaline Buffer to set mt KH,

I aim for 4-5 KH and 7-8 GH for my type of fish.

Never tried R/O Right, can't help you there, Also note R/O water is NOT magic water, you still need to do your weekly water changes
