Whats the feeling on Reverse Osmosis water?

I'm wondering if Flouride is having an impact on my health, so I'd like to try it. Or any other recommendations for water without Fouride.

Yup, this is exactly what we do. RO filtered water + liquid minerals. And for fun, I've got a sodastream that I use to add CO2 to the water, then refill old S. Pellegrino bottles with.

Before you do reverse osmosis, check to see if it clears the flouride. There are some companies that don't publish that data.

The Berkey filters will filter out flouride, but need a more specific filter to do so.

If you do go with RO, you may also want to look into remineralizing the water with something like concentrace.

I have heard from a knowledgeable source that does his own water testing that the Berkley he bought didn't filter fluoride nor heavy metals and the only way to filter fluoride is with a distiller or with an RO filter. Distillation uses a ton of energy so RO is usually the recommended option.

nods We use a Berkey with a special fluoride filter, rather than RO -- the systems we looked at didn't have a consistent record of removing fluoride, and they also weren't consistent about removing bacteria from untreated water -- which we worry about down here with things like hurricanes and such.
