Shop Water Filters - Fluoride
Fluoride occurs naturally in the environment (vegetables, fruits & nuts). Most of our expiosure to fluoride, however, comes from municipal (city) water treatment plants that add fluoride to the water supply as a tooth decay preventative. As a general rule most water treatment facilities that do add fluoride make every effort to keep fluoride levels between 1.5 and 2.5 ppm (mg/L). If operators allow fluoride concentrations to get much higher the fluoride becomes detrimental to tooth enamel.
Other sources of fluoride include waste water streams from manufacturing facilities that produce glass, steel and aluminum.
The USEPA has set the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for fluoride at 4 ppm (mg/L). If you need to test your water for fluoride, we suggest you take a look at the Watercheck Fluoride Test Kit made by National Testing Laboratories.
At this time we carry countertop, undercounter/countertop, inline refrigerator, and whole house filters for fluoride removal.
