Yeah, for most people the trouble of RO probably doesn't justify its use. The only way it works for me is that the unit dribbles into a float-controlled 105 gallon storage reservoir. I have that hard-plumbed to the 180g aquairum. If I actually had to carry buckets or hoses around I'd never bother with it. In fact, my 46g aquarium upstairs gets to have only fish and plants that do well in my hard well water (GH 20, KH 15). I suppose I could rig up a pump and a hose to get the stuff up through the floor, but ....... eh, on second thought..... I'll just stick with what comes out of the tap.
