TYPE OF FILTER: Countertop Fluoride Water Filter
2-Canister Countertop Fluoride Water Filter Plus. Countertop filters do not require a plumber. Chrome finish is an option. White is less expensive.
FOR WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES?
Anyone can use this, but because the diverter simply screws onto the kitchen faucet (no plumber needed), people in apartments generally get a countertop unit. This filter is appropriate for municipal systems. Will fit any kitchen faucet as long as your main faucet is not itself a sprayer.
THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN FILTRATION BETWEEN UNDER-SINK AND COUNTERTOP FILTERS.
ALL of our kitchen canister filters take out chlorine. If you have chloramine, you need a filter that specifies it filters chloramine. Call your water supply company or do a web search for your town’s Water Quality Report to see if it lists chlorine or chloramine. (And to see if your water is fluoridated.) Or email us with your town and state (not zip code) and we’ll check for you.
The wide-spectrum plus microfiber option adds filtration of plastic microfibers and cysts in addition to the filtration of metals, chemical and organic contaminants, leaving good tasting water. Click the link to see the blog on microfibers.
* Folks, don’t wait until you are frightened by some particular contaminant proven to be in your drinking water the day they tested it. We know for a fact there are hundreds of them. Get quality kitchen filters that work on all the categories of contaminant.
* Fluoride is the active ingredient in rat poison and Prozac. Learn more about why you want to Remove Fluoride.
* If your municipality uses chloramines not chlorine, you should get a filter that targets chloramines, which are harder to remove. See the 3-canister chloramine version which is this filter plus a chloramine cartridge.
WHAT IS FILTERED?
This unit delivers excellent water filtration, the filtration is the same as the 2-canister undercounter fluoride plus water filter.
This much of the right filter media has been shown to effectively remove FLUORIDE. It will be around 96% removal for most people. Water chemistry is complex. These are realistic estimates, but specifics vary. We do not recommend one fluoride-filtering media over the other. We offer two because they are available and both work very well. Calcium-based carbon is also known as bone char.
The filter materials in this filter effectively filter hundreds of contaminants, including:
- chromium 6
- chlorination byproducts
- chemical pharmaceuticals
- organic pharmaceuticals
- bad taste
- hundreds of other contaminants.
The FDA has certified kdf and all the filter media used in all filters we sell as releasing nothing harmful into the water. The EPA has certified kdf as compliant with Standards 61 & 42.
Has been tested and approved to NSF/ANSI 53 for fluoride removal by the Water Quality Association. See Certifications. Also see the tab “Education” then Water Filters, Certifications & Test Results for lots more.
This filter works on all the categories of contaminants.
To see a sample list of contaminants filtered, see What Is Filtered? .
HOW DOES IT WORK?
These have more filter material than others, which results in more filtration!
There is excellent strong water flow through this water filter and all of our filters.
The kdf in these filters has been processed using the patented FOAM ADVANTAGE. This means a higher level of filtration with less kdf – leaving more room for the other media in the canisters so they also deliver more filtration. Click to learn more.
Water flows freely through each of the different filter media. Bacteria cannot grow in the carbon because of copper-zinc kdf. The best-of-all-worlds filtering – takes out the bad, leaves healthy trace elements.
YOUR CHOICE FOR FLUORIDE FILTRATION
* CHOOSE EITHER a full pound and a half of activated alumina (no, this is not aluminum!); OR calcium-based carbon. We do not recommend one over the other.
This filter uses multiple filtration methods. The types of filtration include ‘pore opening’, magnetics, catalytic action using reduction-oxidation, electroplating, ion exchange, reshaping of hardness ions and adsorption. An environment harmful to bacteria, algae and fungus is created. The water acts softer.

“I bought a countertop filter from you about 7 months ago and I LOVE it.”

Another customer has an extreme allergic reaction to chlorine. Her hair even starts falling out when she is exposed to it. She tests her water so that she knows right away when chlorine starts to break through. She let us know that after more than 10 months there is still no chlorine in her water.
