I have mixed RO water with Brita filtered tap water for years. Since each person's tap water sources will be different, it will be up to you to start off mixing 50/50 and testing the results of the combined pH and mineral content. Take it from there in deciding if you wish to go 25%/75%, 30%/70%, or stick with 50%/50% based on your specific results and what results you are striving for in your case. As a conditioner, I add a very small dose of Seachem Prime.

I purchased some 2, 2.5, and some 3 gallon water containers. Decide what type of water you will keep in each one. For example I have some labeled for RO, others labeled for tap water and one labeled to be used as Mixing water container.

Actually to add to the confusion, I recently got rid of my Brita dispenser and purchased a ZeroWater dispenser. I must add that ZeroWater results are VERY close to the results from a RO system.

Good luck.
