DO YOUR SYSTEMS REMOVE FLUORIDE?

AN UNFORTUNATE REALITY

Flouride is an emotional and controversial topic. Many want it out of their water and many others think it adds valuable benefits. We aren't going to wade into that discussion and originally planned to offer choices for each party. During the development of those options, we were introduced to a few concepts not well known and definitely not discussed by water filter companies.

Please spend 5 minutes watching this overview. If you can't or prefer to read, scroll below and read the main themes. You'll also find some of the source documents down there as well

 

 

MAIN THEMES AND SOURCES

1. Activated alumina (AA) and bone char, the 2 most popular filter medias, are not effective when the pH or the water being filtered is above 6.5. Unfortunately, our household water in 99.9% of cases is above 7.0.

2. Filters need a lot of activated alumina and/or bone char to be effective for very long. More than you will find in a typical household water filter.

3. Effective filtration requires a long "soak time" to allow the AA to absorb the fluoride. Much longer than you will want to wait with a flow through filter.

4. AA needs to be flushed and recharged to maintain effectiveness. Impossible with a countertop or undersink application.

5. The only household applications where you can be assured of 95%+ fluoride removal are reverse osmosis and distillation.

6. Many tests shown by fluoride filter companies are either for a very short period of filter usage, were tested using a custom made solution in small quantities, or don't indicate what the pH of the tested solution was.
