I wouldn't dare drink the tap water ... at least not where I live. I won't even use it just to brush my teeth or cook pasta or rice. Before I had
the filter installed, once-per-week I'd buy 10 one-gallon jugs of distilled water for $10... not bottled tap-water with a fancy label ... distilled
gallon jugs only. I used it for drinking and cooking and then I also had a $180 filter installed on the shower-head that lasted one-year before the
filter needs replacing. So, I replace it every year. Now, I have a whole house filter.
There are excellent high-quality affordable water filters available, some may have to be replaced more often than others. It's best (and most
effective) if the water filter is specifically custom-tailored (using different media) to your water supply.
The company I purchased water filters from custom-tailors the water filter for you if you give them your water supply company and your zip-code.
Apparently, they have an extensive database of some sort that contains all of the detailed information regarding water supply systems, at least in the
They enter your zip-code into their database/system and they can tell if your water is fluoridated or contains ammonia or whatever other crapola they
put in the main water supply. FYI ... the owner/distributor of these water filters is a retired Chemist.
IMO ... and based on my research, if AWS, American Water Supply is the company you write the check to for your water bill, well, AWS is certainly not
ranked one of the best.
So, for example, if one is located in Florida, the water bill will say 'FL American Water Supply' and in California it will say 'CA American Water
Supply', and so on ...... AWS I think is probably one of the worst water supplies there is in the U.S. .... IMO... I think AWS is attempting to take
over as many U.S. water supply systems as they possibly can and I have a strong suspicion that the Monsanto crime family has something to do with the
by-products, fluoride and aluminum, that are in our (poisoned) food and water supply.
I'd say it took me about 5-hours (total time) spread out over one-week to research this on-line and then after a dozen or so google searches I also
made a few calls to the different companies and I finally hit on a good company and product. This company is located in Arizona, but they ship almost
anywhere within the U.S. I've been using them for several years now.
Fluoride is everywhere ... in the air, food, vitamins and water supply. So, I think if we don't ingest any additional fluoride by taking vitamins
with fluoride or by drinking or showering with fluoridated water, these changes can make a huge difference.
Fluoride weakens the immune system (allowing cancer and other diseases to take over) and the skeletal system (causing stunted growth in children or
osteoporosis in adults) and it can cause tooth/dental problems (especially mottling) when it's in excess. We don't need to take in anymore than we
are already getting naturally. Excess causes very serious and totally irreversible problems for the young and old alike.
