Type of Filter?
Kitchen Fluoride, Chlorine, Extra Protection Water Filter Plus.
This filters all that a 2-canister Fluoride Plus Filter does, and adds a second wide-spectrum filter cartridge for EXTRA protection. The two wide-spectrum filter cartridges work against chemical and organic contaminants. These include pharmaceuticals, drugs, heavy metals, hormones, etc. The added wide-spectrum cartridge, the KR101A, does all the first one does, but also filters out cysts and microfibers.

Having three canisters means that you have flexibility going forward to use other cartridges, for if your situation changes. If you want the best under sink filter for fluoridated water, and you don’t have chloramine, this is it.
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. This provides a higher level of protection from pharmaceuticals, chemical, organic contaminants, and heavy metals.
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.
This is a multi-stage filter system. In addition to sediment filtration, there are 5 stages.

How it Works
The first canister has 2 sediment filters and two other filter mediums that will filter free chlorine, chlorination by-products, chromium, mtbe, trihalomethane, organic-based drugs and hormones. chemical contaminants like chemical-based 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.
The second canister has a sediment filter and filters fluoride. Choose Activated Alumina or Calcium-based Carbon (bone char.) Both work very well. 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 to not use bone char.
The third canister does everything that the first one does, and ADDS filtration of cysts and microfibers.
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.
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.
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.

The housings can handle 33% higher pressure than industry-standard white housings. The free wrench we include is slightly larger to adapt to the more robust canisters. The improved housing was introduced after we made this video. The housings of the undercounter filters are now as shown in the still photo.
