Is there an inexpensive fluoride test?
Advertisement
A few month ago, I bought a pitcher filter from Seychelles, they claim it removes 85% of fluoride. I have been using it diligently, but it is really a pain in the ass since it only filters about 1/3 of a gallon at a time, filtering and filling jugs has become a part time job.
So I bit the bullet if you will, and bought my family a Big Berkey. Nice setup.
Putting the Berkey together, I made an observation, how come the Berkey filters through 2- BIG black filters, then through two large chemical filters to remove arsenic/fluoride, while the Seychelles only has very, very small black ceramic type filters.
I did the food coloring test, I put some drops of blue food coloring in tap water, put some in the Berkey and some in the Seychelles. The water came out of the Berkey crystal clear, and, well, blue water came out of the Seychelles.
So now I am especially dubious of Seychelles filtering claims. I suspect it does nothing at all, but just some basic filtering like a cheap Brita pitcher.
So, the question is, how do I test th[Image: 9BAF_508808B8.jpg]e water? can you get test kits somewhere?

Take a sample to a High End Pet store, and tell them its from your Fish Aquarium, they will test it for about three bucks and give you a printout as well. I do this twice a year with our well water.

Remember when Alex Jones constant shilling for berkey was not a big deal since it is actually an awesome product?

I just use a distiller, pure clean water.
Then I add a bit of organic shell calcium to counteract the aggressiveness of the pure water's ph level.

Pure, clean , ph balanced water that supplies a non-dairy source of natural organic calcium.....Perfect.

Curious how the Big Berkey users do it since I'm considering one. Is the standard practice to just run a few gallons through it and collect it in gallon jugs and toss them in your fridge? Or do you just let the water sit in the Berkey and dispense as needed and just add ice cubes if it's for drinking?

I have been filling gallon just and putting them in the fridge. I tap it straight out for coffee and cooking.
