Whole House Fluoride Reduction with the Platinum
We have an exciting new option for increased whole house fluoride reduction. The Platinum is a new Quantum Disinfection product (click the link to learn more about Quantum Disinfection) actually designed, proven effective, certified, and marketed as a DISINFECATION MATERIAL – replacing the need for chlorination. That application is most useful for well water with bacteria.
This item is a Platinum with a 5-micron pre-filter. 5 micron filtration is required for the Quantum Disinfection material to work properly for fluoride or disinfection.
During the testing, it was learned that the Platinum also considerably reduces fluoride! The media has not had the extensive testing and certification for fluoride removal that it has had for disinfection. But if you are someone more impressed by results than certifications, this may be of interest.
We can safely say that the Platinum will reduce fluoride by .5 ppm for 200,000 gallons. It varies, but most municipalities have fluoride at .7 to .8 ppm. So .5 is a significant reduction. If you really are trying to get after fluoride at the whole house level, you can add this to one of our “Advanced Upgrade” Whole House Filters, to get the combined fluoride reduction impact from both the filter and the Platinum.
This is a new technology and a brand new product for Friends of Water. The combination of Advanced Upgrade Filter with a Platinum has not yet been applied in the field (August 2019). However, the Advanced Upgrade Whole House filter start fluoride reduction at about 85%, and trails down to about 35% over the life of the filter. Follow that with the .5 ppm reduction by the Platinum, and normal municipal levels of fluoride should be eliminated.
This application of the Platinum is designed to be combined with an Advanced Upgrade Whole House Filter. Those Whole House Filters include a standard 20-micron pre-filter. For the Platinum, a 5-micron pre-filter is needed. You don’t want a 5-micron without previous filtration, as it is apt to clog far too frequently. So this option includes a 10″ 5-micron Big Blue pre-filter and a Platinum.
