What Type of Filter?
The Kitchen Fluoride, Chlorine, Extra Protection Water Filter Plus filters the same things that a 2-canister Fluoride Plus filter does – and adds an additional wide-spectrum filter cartridge for EXTRA protection against chemical contaminants like Pharmaceuticals, chemically-based drugs, heavy metals AND organically-based contaminants like hormones, etc. Additionally, having a third canister means that you have flexibility going forward to use other cartridges if you situation changes. If you want the best under sink filter for fluoridated water, and you don’t have chloramine, this is it.
This 3-canister Kitchen Fluoride, Chlorine, Extra Protection Water Filter Plus is designed to also remove MTBEs, hormones, chromium-6, and all the other contaminants that might be found in your municipal water supply. This configuration does not filter chloramines.
FLUORIDE MEDIA OPTIONS: We do not recommend one fluoride-filtering media over the other. We offer two because they are available and both work very well, so we give our customers the choice. Calcium-based carbon is also known as bone char. Vegans and vegetarians may prefer not to use bone char.
These units have an improved housing. The filtration remains the same and the same cartridges fit. These housings can handle 33% higher pressure compared to industry-standard white housings. The free wrench we include is slightly larger to adapt to the more robust canisters.
The Kitchen Fluoride, Chlorine, Extra Protection Water Filter is the same as the 2-canister FLUORIDE PLUS filter (click here to see test results of the 2-canister) plus an extra canister doubling up on the amount of kdf and carbon for a higher level of protection from pharmaceuticals, chemical AND organic contaminants, and heavy metals. By the way, that includes pet and livestock drugs as well as illegal drugs.
The improved housing was introduced after we made this video. The housings of the undercounter filters are now as shown in the still photo.
Friends, don’t wait until you are frightened by some particular contaminant proven to be in your drinking water. We know for a fact there are hundreds of them in our water supplies, many unregulated. Get quality kitchen filters that work on all the categories of contaminants – like this one.
This is a multi-stage filter system. In addition to sediment filtration, there are 5 stages.
The second canister (first in line for water flow) has a sediment filter and removes fluoride. It also works against arsenic.
The first and third canisters EACH have 2 sediment filters and two other filter mediums that will remove free chlorine, chlorination by-products, chromium, mtbe, trihalomethane, organic-based drugs and hormones. chemical contaminants like chemical-based pharmaceuticals, heavy metals and more. All together there are 2 POUNDS (OVER 900 grams) of top-grade coconut carbon for extra protection from MTBE and other organic contaminants, and a balancing amount of kdf – 2 1/2 pounds all together – to remove chemical-based contaminants like pharmaceuticals, and heavy metals.
This filter filters chlorine, chlorination by-products like trihalomethanes, perchlorate, heavy metals like lead, sediment, algae, molds, hormones, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, scale, bad taste, odors and hundreds of contaminants. Bacteria cannot grow in the carbon because of copper-zinc.
Take out the bad and leave the healthy trace elements your body needs.
This filter is right for you if you want extra insurance from high levels of pharmaceuticals, illegal drugs, hormones, mtbe and other contaminants that you know about – or that might surge in your supply.

To see a sample list of many of the contaminants filtered by this water filter, see What Is Filtered?
The kdf in our filters uses a special patent-processed FOAM ADVANTAGE kdf that increases effectiveness and length of use – and does not clog – supporting a strong water flow for the life of the filter. This also means that more kdf filtration happens in a smaller part of the canisters – leaving more room for carbon, thereby increasing carbon filtration too. For more information, see The Foam Advantage.
