Would a unit like https://www.amazon.com/Aquatic-Life-Ch ... 19&sr=8-43 be ok? Or are there better recommendations? Appreciate your thoughts ...

And does it make sense to use an RO unit if my tap water TDS is 350 ppm? (Currently use a distiller, but it would be nice to have something more energy-efficient)

I should make a cover for it. The water here is 350ppm going in, but the RO filter should catch all that before it gets to DI stage.
