Kitchen 2-canister Fluoride Water Filter
Choose the fluoride water filter that is right for you. Do you have chlorine or chloramines in your water?
Activated alumina or calcium carbon are used in our kitchen canister fluoride water filters. These are certified for fluoride removal and are the best options for removing fluoride – while keeping trace elements that the body needs in the water. Regrettably, our experience over many years suggests that fluoride testing is not reliable. We get reports on the same type of filtration that show greatly varying results. Individual customers who have tested these filters in their homes have reported 0 fluoride when new, and 0 fluoride after seven months of use. Others have shown no fluoride being removed, which is obviously a false positive test result. You can’t run water through the best fluoride filter materials and have nothing happen. Other customer results have shown in between. Sorry, we really wish it weren’t so.
See the pages under “Education/Water Filters” for actual impacts on health, as well as certification, test results and more.
Fluoride combines with a metallic compound in our water supply, and a metallic substance with the opposite attraction removes it. Every metal has a charge, either positive or negative, and each can be either strong or weak. The right combination happens with activated alumina, which is one of the fluoride media available in our canister filters. As best we can tell, removal rates range from Not Detected to about 80% removal. (rated at 2400 ppm). The one reason we know to choose this over calcium-based carbon is if you are a vegetarian. Calcium-based carbon aka bone char is an animal product.
Calcium-based carbon, the other option for fluoride removal, is also known as bone char. It is also very effective and equally safe. There are one reason we know of to choose this over activated alumina. It works better in a high pH situation. Virtually all municipalities deliver neutral water.
In our whole house fluoride water filters, calcium-based carbon in used, combined with wide-spectrum filter materials and other specialized media. The use of calcium-based carbon, combined with FOAM ADVANTAGE kdf, has allowed us to offer whole house fluoride filtration at extremely affordable rates.

Fluoride Water Filters for the Kitchen
You can remove fluoride with the 2 or 3-canister fluoride water filters found in our online store.
Under-Sink & Countertop Filters
We carry both countertop and under-sink water filters to clean your drinking water. The filters are the same, just how they connect is different. Each of the under-sink water filters come with its own faucet, which can go through the opening in your kitchen sink. Under-sink units usually take a plumber a half-hour to install. You don’t need a plumber with countertop filters. The countertop models all have a diverter that screws onto the end of your existing kitchen faucet. To send water through the filter, you pull the tab on the side of the diverter.
• Under-counter 2- and 3-canister fluoride water filters come with their own faucet that goes through the extra opening in your sink. You can upgrade at little cost to get a better faucet (which we do recommend.)
• Countertop 2 and 3-canister water filters all have a diverter that screws onto the end of your faucet. You pull a tab to send water through the filter and back to your faucet.
Every one of these drinking water filters works on more than 600 contaminants including chlorine, organic-based contaminants like hormones, chemical-based drugs, arsenic, lead, heavy metals, chlorination by-products like trihalomethanes, and pesticides in much the same way that Mother Earth uses the minerals in the rocks and ground to clean water as it runs through to the aquifers. Those listed on this page also remove fluoride.

“I am a practicing Anesthesiologist living in a small town in Pennsylvania who has spent a small fortune on bottled water. Our city water is chlorinated and fluorinated, the taste was not very good and the quantity of water I drink as well as my husband and family the cost of bottled water really adds up. I researched the web in search of a water purification system. I really didn’t want to bother with interrupting my plumbing, I just wanted something that was easy to install and remain on my countertop. I came upon the website friendsofwater.com and found just what I was looking for, a countertop 2-canister, multi-stage system that attached to my faucet and could stay on my countertop. I had the best of both worlds. I also could get this in chrome to match my kitchen.
I was intrigued so I called the toll free number (also a good asset for a company to have) and spoke with Timothy. Timothy was both knowledgeable and patient with all my questions. I was satisfied that this system satisfied my needs and also purchased systems for my parents (they are senior citizens who also should not be drinking water with fluoride and chlorine in it and can’t afford to keep buying bottled water).
Well, the systems arrived in less than a week and they were just beautiful to look at. But how did they work? We installed the systems in our home and that of my parents, talk about easy installation without a plumber. We ran the water through the system and in less than 10 minutes had the freshest tasting water. We all agreed this was even better than our bottled water and now coming from our tap and with good pressure. We also liked that after turning off the system the faucet was fully usable for washing dishes, etc.
I had a few questions and called Timothy and he researched a glitch and it was resolved within 24 hours, incredible. I had a small problem with one of the three systems we bought and he sent out a replacement diverter for me, no problem.
I have never been treated so well by a business, especially an Internet business. I was speechless and very grateful I had chosen this company. I will tell this story to all my friends, colleagues and patients in the event they would also like to have such a system. I hope this helps anyone who is searching for something like this for their family. I would recommend this company to anyone.”
