Fluoride Filters for Your House

Fluoride in Drinking Water

Perhaps the most widely known use of fluoride is its addition to public drinking water supplies at about one milligram per liter (mg/L) of a fluoride salt, measured as fluoride, for the purpose of reducing tooth decay. This is achieved at the municipal treatment plant by injecting or feeding a solution of hydrofluosilicic acid, sodium silicofluoride, or sodium fluoride into the treated water stream. It is the fluoride ion in mineral ionic form that occurs in water, bones, teeth, and public drinking water supplies. It was estimated in 1992 that about 144 million people drink fluoridated water at levels ranging from 0.7 to 1.2 mg/L.

Removing or reducing fluoride from water. How is it done?

There are four types of filters systems that effectively remove or reduce fluoride from your water:  Bone Char, Ion Exchange, Reverse Osmosis and Steam Distillation.

There is a filter media called Alumina that we DO NOT recommend.  If your water’s chemistry is not just right, aluminum can leach into the water. Alumina has a very short shelf life and won’t remove chlorine, pesticides or THM’s.

More About Our Bone Char Media

High Calcium Bone Char made of charred animal bone – bovine (cow) bones are taken from cold storage, thoroughly cleaned and put in sun for at least 90 days and totally dried. It is then carbonized at 1472 degrees Fahrenheit in controlled conditions. The result is Kosher Certified, 100% organic bone char made of 80% phosphate of calcium, 10% carbon and 10% calcium carbonate. It lasts a long time, has no toxicity and leaves behind beneficial minerals. In addition can remove chlorine, heavy metals and radioactive isotopes on top of fluoride. Bone char is considered a more effective contaminate remover than coconut because it is hundreds of times more porous.

The fluoride is removed due to the high calcium content of the bone. Calcium attracts the fluoride weather it is calcium or sodium based.

Water needs contact time for bone char to thoroughly remove contaminates, so we recommend two stage filters system. The two stage systems will remove about 85%, of fluoride. You can also install a whole house unit that will reduce or remove fluoride from every water source in your home. If your home’s average water flow is 6-12 gpm (std. up to 4 bedrooms house) then whole-house system can remove up to 85% using 2 cubic foot back-washable tank system.

High Calcium Bone Char has an NSF61 approval through the National Sanitation Foundation – www.nsf.org

Benefits of Using Bone Char Filter:

  • Easy Install
  • Reduction of Fluoride up to 1ppm (mg/L)
  • Known to reduce some heavy metals
  • 450,000 gallon capacity
  • 90 Day Satisfaction Guarantee

Bone Char Filter Will Remove:

  • DBCP (Dibromo-chloro-propane)
  • THMs (trihalomethanes)
  • Herbicides & Pesticides
  • Heavy Metal ions
  • MTBE (Methyl-tertiary-butyl-ether)
  • Fluoride
  • Lead
  • Arsenic

Ion Exchange Fluoride Removal Media

Fluoride removal system (from 91% to 99%) refers to a proprietary blend of Fluoride, Arsenic, Anion and Cation. Removal Resins is used to remove Fluoride in residential applications. This media is NSF Certified and ANSI Certified for water purification use. This media is re-generated with Sodium Chloride (Salt) and re-generates in a manner similar to a Softener.

Please note: In counties that have out-lawed salt re-generated water softeners these systems are not allowed.

This media can be effectively used over and over again through Salt Re-Generation. The system overall cost is 1/2 that of other methods of Fluoride Removal, like using Bone Char media.

It requires salt for re-generation (monthly) as well as the use of a Reverse Osmosis Filter for Drinking Water.

This system is highly effective and extremely inexpensive to operate. Ion Exchange Resin will last up to ten plus years.

FLUORIDE

“In a society where asbestos, lead, silica, beryllium and many other carcinogens have found their way into the marketplace and then been recalled, one has to wonder why fluoride, so toxic it is used as a rat poison and pesticide, is embraced so thoroughly and so blindly.”
