How can I access defluoridated water?
    #16150931 - 04/28/12 01:49 PM (2 years, 6 months ago)

Really don't want fluoride in my water...how can I circumvent this?

Move to a municipality that doesnt fluoridate the supply, use RO water which removes most of the fluoride or buy bottled water.

Doesn't bottled water also often contain fluoride?

And apparently reverse osmosis systems are expensive and unaffordable to the average consumer.

Depends on what you get.

Nah, they are cheap and easy to install.  Costco sells them for a couple hundred bucks.  Unless your paranoid enough to want RO'd shower water...  In that case you can pay out the ass for whole house RO systems too.

Is there any way to tell which bottled water is ok and which is not?

That's a lot of money to me right now :sad:

RO'd water removes most of it.  Distilled water should remove all but a trace.  Just dont fuck up your electrolytes by downing a bunch of distilled water at once.

Will the bottle tell if the water is distilled or RO'd?  And how much distilled water is "too much" at one time?  I drink a shitton of water.

Yes, when you buy gallon bottles at walmart or whatever you buy either RO'ed or Distilled.  If you drink too much distilled water your electrolytic balance could get fucked.  Drinking too much of any water will do this.  I think of this as a possible acute incident, but some people claim that long term drinking of pure water will leach vital minearls from your bones or something.  I dont blieve that is as big of a problem as they make it out to be.  Be sure to read some medical professionals opinions on this.

If you are going to drink distilled water, you may want to supplement with some added electrolytes.  These may work, but be sure to read around on it.

Perhaps I could supplement electrolytes through red Gatorade or Powerade?

Some reading material on the subject of bottled water v. tap water....
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bottled_water#Bottled_water_versus_tap_water

Some brands also dont use BPA-free plastic in their bottles.

:rofl:

Worried about fluoride, but not worried about the crap in Gatorade or Powerade?  :rolleyes:

Yuuup...I know what shit does to you.

Regardless, I bought some SmartWater.  Distilled, and with added electrolytes.  :smile:

i love how the word ro water gets tossed around in anti fluoride conversations.  if a person consumed true ro water, it would pass through them about as fast as just dumping it out on the floor.

For real?  You mean you'd have to piss right away?

And to the best of my knowledge I've never tried RO water...the water I just bought is merely distilled with added electrolytes.

water that goes straight through u doesn't come out your cock, it comes out your ass.  true fresh ro water is very different from regular water.  when i instal real ro systems, it is required to use special pipe and fitings that melt together (not glue or solder/flux) and requires special fixtures so not to contaminate the pure water that comes out the tap.

RO doesn't really make pure water though.  It take out a lot, but I wouldn't think of it as 'pure'.  Distillation makes purer water, by orders of magnitude I suspect.

ro isn't a type of filter, it is a system of filters and processes.  if u don't think real ro water is pure, go get a case of dasani water and freeze it.  at least several bottles will super cool.  this is only possible with pure water.  when we installed the dasani ro sytem at the coke plant we were warned not to drink it, that it had to be bottled for an hour before it was safe.  one of our coworkers thought it was a dare...

Right, I know what it is.  Its the reverse of osmosis.  Osmotic pressure in a solution comes from a chemical potential gradient.  Osmotic pressure always acts such that it reduces the chemical gradient across the membrane.  RO for drinking water does the opposite.  You apply pressure on the solution and the chemical potential gradient across the membrane increases.  Better systems will increase the gradient more with better membranes and higher pressure.  But you can do simple osmosis and reverse osmosis at home with a coffee filter.  You arn't going to get it very pure though, of course.  I would expect that Dasani has quality ones, but again, in general distillation makes a much purer product that RO.  Just depends on how much you are willing to spend.

Distilled water is your best bet OP.  You can buy a water distiller for like $99.

I have places near me that sell Reverse-Osmosis and 6 stage filtered purified alkaline water, like 50c/gallon, I just get 5 gallon refills.
They also add a minerals concentration to it for like 50c. Good shit. Alkaline water is the way to go.
