I remember my first trip to the boundary waters canoe area in Minnesota.
Us city kids were stunned when the outfitter told us to drink the lake water no filter needed.

I must say we had no issues.


Works great...until it doesn't.

I don't know, but at a campground where we hosted, the lake water had to be tested weekly for us to let swimmers in the water at the beaches.

Do tell, there is no lab test in Standard Methods for the Examination of Water called "Test for Toxins". Who told you that, the Culigan man?

There are tests for things known to be toxic, but no respectable water person would use toxin.

Do you remember why W.C. Fields said he didn't drink water?

Water person?! I guess I'm one and if someone wants a test for 'toxins' I would say which one there are thousands or hundreds of thousands probably. You could do a GC/MS (gas chromatography/Mass Spectrography) scan which pick up -organic molecules- in the sample but you are talking serious money per test, over $1000 each for a walk in customer. And you'd have to add a lot of other general chemical and biological analysis to cover the more likely possibilities. But there is no test for toxins the term is nebulous and like a fog bank blowing in the wind. No you go in and buy an analysis for specific compounds 2,4 dichlorobenzene for example.
That's why I asked if it was the Culigan man, those water softener salesmen have a certain reputation amoung environmental chemists and it aligns with RV salesmen. They will do their worst to use the anal extraction method to make up lies to scare people into buying their junk.

But yes we are far off subject. If the OP wants to fill his gut with lake water, that's fine with me. It's his gut after all.
