Fort Collins: what is the closest community/well w/o floride in the water?

I want to fill up my 5G with non -florinated water to use as drinking water.
Free is awesome but I'll pay for each gallon of water. FC is all fluoride so filtered water still has it. thanks bill

thanks. i'm looking for tap water from a muni or a well that is fluoride free...and close to me so I can refill easy and fast. cheaper the better. i want to fill my 5 gallon tank w/ that water and when i run low i go back. think free or cheap....25c gallon. doesn't need to be all fancy filtered/yuppy water and such just tap w/ no flouride.

does loveland flouride? how about just laporte etc. what do the breweries do?
if i drink a fat tire or odells is that made with flouride water? who's got a well i can fill with near FC?

flouride has proven over and over to reduce IQ points. i don't want a stupid kid because of simple water. most other munis have stop using flouride... flouride is in rat poison http://www.ehow.com/about_6544969_fl...at-poison.html why do I want to drink that??? there are proven better things for toothpaste and strong teeth - Xylitol http://www.naturepurity.com/holistic/xylitol_faq.html


thanks Bill

Just buy Eldorado bottled water at King Soopers and save yourself from driving all over looking for good water. It is good water! Or have em deliver it in 5 gallon jugs and install a dispenser.

Another idea....install a R/O water filter in your house from which to get drinking water.

Another chemical you aren't talking about, but may have considered, is chlorine. Thats in probably all municipal water systems. Yum Yum!

we go through alot of water and that is expensive way to go.
I have a nice used rubber maid 5 gallon water jug (like you see on the back of all the work trucks). I'm hoping to find a place close where I can go fill that up for hopefully free or cheap. i'm hoping for a clean well in the area.

and yes i'd like to not drink chlorine.

Most reverse osmosis drinking water filtration systems will remove fluoride.

The problem with RO water is that it is stripped of just about everything, making it very aggressive.

Sprouts has that in FC and they said flat out it does not remove the fluoride. water taste is awesome and cheap but still has fluoride.

This is why one should restrict their fluid consumption to strictly whiskey and beer! The alcohol content negates any bad effects from chlorine and floride. I'm not a doctor but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night

If you drink beer most is made with muni water. How do I know? I was a commercial brewer for 12 years. Flouride is naturally occurring in lots of water. In some parts of the country its above 4 parts a million. Most munis that flouridate go to 0.9 to 1.1 ppm. In fact a lot of places add little to no flouride to hit that goal. Just because you are getting water from a well, or a muni that doesn't flouridate, doesn't mean you are getting water without flouride. Again you ask how do you know. I have been treating water for the past 8 + years.

Good info and food for thought from ironbrewer here Bill. ^^^^^

I've tested well water (for household use and domestic consumption) here in Routt County that routinely had between 25 - 50 ppm of NATURALLY OCCURRING flouride! At these levels it will mottle teeth and replace Ca in bones. Pretty darn dangerous really. So to reinforce ironbrewer's point, don't assume that just because water HASN'T been treated with flouride ............. that it doesn't contain a high concentration of it already.

We usually tested with an ion specific electrode for Flouride. The only other ion that significantly interfered with this probe was a hydroxide ion and and if you suspected any issues, you could buffer the sample to then negate this interference. In short, it is a pretty accurate method.

I think that there has to be a "sweet spot" level for flouride, and it's probably a bit lower than what most of us are getting. The recommended levels have recently been revised downward here in the US I believe. At least they were talking about doing that not too long ago. Even with all the negative press that this issue receives, I remember reading somewhere that the flouridating of US water supplies is still widely considered one of the 10 most important health accomplishments of the 20th century. (or something to that effect)

I'm pretty sure that the recommended level of flouride is 0.8 to 1.1 ppm, and yes flouridation of water is considered one of the top 10 most important health accomplishments in health in the 20th century.

why even a sweet spot Rob? for what your teeth? there are better alternatives...and they are not a rat poison ingredient.
