How to check tap water on poison or flourid?
« on: February 04, 2012, 11:09:12 PM »

Hi there,
First I have to mention that I have absolutely no idea of chemistry but I didn't know any place better than this to ask this question:
How can I check the tap water on any kind of poison or flourid using simple methods? Methods that require simple equipment you can buy in any market. Is that possible?
I am just not a fan of drinking water out of bottles any more cause of the leacking substances in the plastic of a standard bottle.


Can anyone help? If this thread is in the wrong category please feel free to move it to the right one, thank you.

Thanks for the help.  8)


Cheers

Briefly, your municipality probably tests its water at multiple points, and may consider testing yours at point of use.  They'll take a sample away and test it with dedicated instruments, and send you back a report.  There are also testing labs that will do it for you, for a fee.

That all depends on how reasonable we're all willing to be.  I just want my friends back, except for Cartman, you can keep him.

If you google drinking water test kits, you will find a number of different ways to test water. Here is one page of them - http://filter.filtersfast.com/search?p=KK&srid=S1-USCDR02&lbc=filtersfast&ts=custom&pw=test%20kit&uid=383297669&isort=score&view=list&w=Drinking%20Water%20Test%20Kits&rk=3

I haven't seen anything that will test for fluorides, but many of the other contaminants that might fall into your general class of "poisons" are listed, including lead and various pesticides.
