Recommended water filters to filter flouride?
« on: February 25, 2009, 04:42:05 PM »
Hey all, I was just wondering what type of water filter you use to filter out all the chemicals the government puts in the water. What about Brita filters? I really want to get something to reduce
My exposure to these chemicals.

That's interesting. I also took a look at the one AJ always promotes ecolo blue but it's just too big. I'm looking for something that is small and out of the way. The sooner I don't have to drink chlorine and floride the better.

yup yup. I have one as-well, works wonders. Make sure you get the white PF-4 filters as them come separate from the standard black ones.

There we go. Now that's something I'm looking for, hefty price tag but it's worth it if it will get those chemicals out.

Ya, and the filters are about $100 every 10 months. Seems well worth it! Best $300 I've spent in ages.

While we're on the subjest of fluoridated water, heard Paul Connett, PhD - Professor of Chemistry, St. Lawrence University, New York on Coast To Coast archive:

Also:

He said that fluoridated water is sometimes used to water food crops where it can accumulate in high concentrations. There is a list of fluoride sources @:

A lot of people use water distillation units. They remove almost all the fluoride. Distillation has the do it yourself advantage. You can construct a distillation system easily and inexpensively using every day household items.

Another means of fluoride removal is an Activated Alumina Defluoridation Filter. As far as I can tell they remove 85-90% depending on how much alumina you put in the filter. 

Reverse osmosis removes fluoride. FWIW, I've heard AJ say it doesn't really remove it properly because it's so small. But, everywhere I look, reverse osmosis is recommended as a means to remove fluoride from water. If you do use a reverse osmosis system get a 5 stage unit. That oughtta do it.

The  berkey and ecola blue systems are popular choices. I don't really know enough about those systems to comment on them.

I think im going to probably get the berkey system. It looks like the best deal, I am impressed.

I've done a lot of searching and comparing and I think http://www.purewateressentials.com/ is what I'm going with.  Probably the one that goes to the fridge since we get most of our drinking water there and could get 100% there if we want to.  Could add another under the sink.  Would like the whole house filter, but just too much money.

....Can anyone recommend an Australian equivalent? ? ?

That removes a great deal of what a water filter should, not just some general water filtering site  :)

Sometimes I'm lucky for even some of Alex's sponsor to post here and even then the postage is insane.

If you're looking for berkey but can't get one, get yourself a distillation unit.

Thats too good of a price to be true. I like the water pitcher filter that they have. My question is how does it stand up against the bekley? How does it perform against fluoride?

Hooray for water that's fit to drink!
I think it's sad that we need to pay to take the chemicals they dump into our reservoirs out of the water. It should be the other way around!!!

Keep in mind that a water filter in the kitchen isn't enough. Ideally you get a Whole House Water System. You're still exposed to fluoride when you shower through the vaporized water (steam) you inhale, and from other unfiltered taps in your home.

I would at least get one for the shower in addition to the main source tap in your home.

I wouldn't mind doing that. I got the crystal quest pitcher for 30$ last night and It has a 4 stage filter that gets most stuff.  I can't wait to get it in the mail. I'm also thinking about starting a small garden.

Good idea. Just make sure to water it with a filtered hose or water from a filtered tap.

I was thinking about that, too. We're going to make a rain barrel 'cos we get so much water on our roof after rainfall...but I was thinking if it's chemical rain we'll be watering our food with it...It would be nice to be able to filter all the water we'd use for our plants/food, but it seems like such a large undertaking. I think working towards having truly organic soil and water for growing is a terrific idea. I'd need a load of Berkeys to water my yard, though.

I have to say I have something to say. I remember my first filter was a water filter pitcher. I planned to use it to remove fluoride. However, it seemed cheap but the cost of replacement filter costed me much. Then I also bought a water distiller, but it couldn't provide me with enough water. Finally, I bought a reverse osmosis system which can remove fluoride as well as other contaminants and can offer me plenty of water to cook, drink, even wash. From then on, I am used to drinking filtered water from my RO system. Compared with buying bottled water, it is so cheap.

I have a Brita filter and find it pretty "lightweight" when it comes to filtering. It improves the taste of the water, but I have reservations about how effective it actually is. The water in my area is contaminated with heavy metals, so I'm considering a reverse osmosis system for peace of mind.
As for filtering fluoride, APEX have a filter which specializes in this area. It can be found at the bottom of this page: https://waterfilteranswers.com/compare-whole-house-water-filter-reviews/
