13. No. And municipal water isn't anyway.
Among other things it is chlorinated. Do you have a problem with that? Running distilled water through municipal water system is a good way to kill people from disease. More things can be dissolved in water than any other substance you can name. Fluoride is a simple, inexpensive way to prevent cavities. Saves money in the long run.
Don't like it, dig your own well, drink bottled water or set up a still.
