  • The media failed at answering the city the hard questions but they went to the business to SLANDER that guy

  • I don't like the SCARE TACTICS but WAIT the question was did that water have more chlorine than a swimming pool and it never got answered. The said 'it's safe'. WELL DUH!

  • Flouride and chlorine are not essential nutrients. I'll take my chances with the reverse osmosis, it works for me. Y'all can get your dose of hydroflouroscilic acid which is what they use in your water, it burns holes in concrete. Research the medical safety data sheet on it for yourself before you believe this crap. There may be sharks selling over priced units, but as always do your homework and get the best price possible. You can get units for under two hundred dollars.

  • All the city guy does is say "it's ok" "no risk"! Oh why thank you I feel so much better!

  • They may not be an honest company but they're right about chlorine. That's a nasty chemical that you definitely don't want to drink or bathe in, even if its effective at killing bacteria, just like bleach. Tap water also has other contaminates like flouride which is a proven toxin. And of course the guy in charge of water safety is going to be biased and disagree because his job is on the line. He can't say its unsafe (with enough exposure) because otherwise he'd look bad and get fired, even though its true.
