Easy way -
(You can get any, this was less expensive and easy to install, take your time, follow the instructions! its easy)
and a Total Dissolved Solids meter...
The R.O. system gets the 99% and is pretty easy to install. They say to change the filters every 6 months. I bought a TDS meter. It displays the "Total of the Dissolved Solids (TDS) in parts per million". Basically how much "stuff' is in your water.
289 ppm from my tap
210 ppm from my "filtered" Refrigerator water (filter - 6 months old)
15 ppm from my RO tap. This was after 1 year, 3 months, same filter.
When I had my eyes opened to fluoride, every time I drank tap water from my home, I literally felt like I was drinking poison (I know it's crazy). Putting the RO system in made me feel much better, especially with my kids. The water tastes great too. If you do it, take a cup of each, RO and Tap, and compare. It's night and day, the RO water almost makes the Tap water seem like it has a flavor. Ok, sorry for the infomercial, but, I'm not kidding you, it's worth it.

**edit Water is cheap in Indiana, RO uses a lot of water...
