Water Fluoridation Services

At Pencco, we supply the market’s highest-quality fluorosilicic acid, sometimes referred to as hydrofluorosilicic acid or simply HFS (H2SiF6), which contains the lowest arsenic levels compared to any other in the market. This is accompanied by experienced advice on dosage to reach the most effective fluoride concentration for your community, as well as a 30+ year presence in the industry.

Our position as the largest independent distributor of fluoride in the country ensures reliability in product availability while maintaining strict quality control measures.

The Importance of Fluoridation in Drinking Water

Former U.S. Surgeon General, Richard Carmona, makes this statement on water fluoridation:

“Community water fluoridation continues to be the most cost-effective, equitable and safe means to provide protection from tooth decay in a community. A person’s income level or ability to receive routine dental care is not a barrier to receiving fluoridation’s health benefits. Water fluoridation is a powerful strategy in our efforts to eliminate differences in health among people and is consistent with my emphasis on the importance of prevention.”

The American Dental Association has conducted studies that show a reduction of dental caries in children by as much as 60% with fluoridation in drinking water. Furthermore, despite many people using dental products with fluoride (such as toothpastes and rinses), there is still an 18-40% reduction of tooth decay among children and 35% among adults.

Fluoride concentrations greatly depend on the feed stream, whether surface water or groundwater. Generally, the water fed into treatment plants has a natural fluoride concentration that is less than 0.5 ppm. The CDC lists the optimum level for fluoride as 0.7 ppm, which may vary slightly with environmental conditions and consumption rate.

Whether it is premium HFS for your community’s water supply, or an industrial laundry sour grade where color & pricing is the primary driver, Pencco will work with you to determine the best fit for your particular needs.
