    fluride in drinking water eating motors

    has any hear of this before ,bought a ski off a guy(to cheap to refuse),pretty switched on tuner in australia,was told not to flush motors as fluride in the drinking water corrodes motors out,i though they put fluride in drinking water to try to help protect your teeth!!,ski has no flush hose yet,but its on the things to do list,right at the top,been trying to it every few days,to try prevent salt build up

    It will not hurt your motor. Think about how many people run their ski on the hose. Everyone would have broken motors after awhile if this was the case.

    I doubt they would put enough in to harm your motor. Water still has to be in holding tanks, valves, pipes etc.. They would destroy their own system if that were true.

    Your tuner friend is smoking crack. There may be concerns about adding fluoride to drinking water for human safety (more because of the possibility of equipment failure causing an excessive and toxic amount of fluoride compounds to be introduced into the water supply), but your ski is absolutely, positively safe.
