Just buy a bottle of distilled water, it's functionally the same as RO/DI (maybe even more pure).

As for the 4DHK solution, sorry, I don't have the measurements you need . I would personally just carefully add in some baking soda in to a quart jar of distilled water, and test it after every small scoop, until you hit 4 DKH.

BTW avoid "mineral water" or "spring water"---- needs to be specifically distilled water.

Distilled water is as pure as you can get. Has no minerals or anything dissolved, therefore it even has no electrical conductivity. You can even dunk your computer in it if you've got big enough cahones.
