WHOLE HOUSE FLUORIDE PLUS WATER FILTER
Whole House Fluoride Water Filter Breakthrough Configuration:
- This is the great two-media, one-tank wide-spectrum whole house filter for 600 plus contaminants,
- Teamed with an affordable and effective whole house fluoride filter tank. Media is layered through both tanks.
- Ahead of the two tanks is a sediment filter.
If you are not in Atlanta, you do not need to ADD the special pre-filter to your order. If you are NOT in Atlanta, select “not needed.” Atlanta and Fulton County residents: Please see notes at bottom of this page.
Media lasts for 350,000 gallons.
Can be configured for chlorine – or for chloramine. The chloramine version also filters out chlorine. Get the right filter for what is in your water! Look on the web for “(your town + state) Annual Water Quality Report,” or call the number on your water bill and ask them if they use chlorine or chloramine. Or email us with your town and state and we’ll check for you.
The carbon and the kdf used are certified by the NSF – as are all the media we use in kitchen cartridge and whole house filters.
FOR WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES?
The whole house fluoride water filter is for those whose want to filter fluoride out of the whole house in addition to all the rest. In recent times we’re hearing more about eczema being connected to fluoride exposure, and we are hearing from and about a growing number of people, children especially, who have particular sensitivities. This unit is most useful for households with particular sensitivities and/or skin issues like eczema.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The wide-spectrum media (kdf and carbon) will work on the categories of contaminants that are found in municipally-treated water. The combination of kdf with carbon means that you will be filtering the contaminants you find on a municipal system. The FOAM ADVANTAGE process used to prepare the kdf means it works far better and longer than regular kdf. The kdf adds to the effectiveness and life of the carbon. The use of the patented FOAM ADVANTAGE kdf 85 cubes allows kdf and activated catalytic carbon (each optimized for chloramine removal) to work together in the same tank. This combination works better than other whole house filters. It requires no regular maintenance. The result is increased filtration and long-lasting filtration. There is no need for a backwash head or electricity, further reducing costs.
In the Whole House Fluoride Water Filter Plus, the fluoride is filtered by calcium-based carbon, aka bone char. This media, when it is top-quality as in this filter, is effective at removing fluoride. Most industry reports state ‘up to 90%” removal. However, we have seen test results that have varied greatly. It is our impression that fluoride testing is not always reliable. However, this whole house filter will knock fluoride down, but it cannot deliver as much fluoride removal as a kitchen filter can.
VERY STRONG WATER FLOW! From 10 to 12 gallons per minute!
Note: These are real tanks, not a 7 inch canister called a tank.
Change filter media in both tanks after 350,000 gallons! Check your water bill to see how much water you use in a year. The media lasts most of our customers between 3 1/2 years and 4 years.
The whole house fluoride water filter delivers better filtration than many filters priced several hundreds to thousands of dollars more!
All of the whole house filters we sell, including this one, contain media proven to remove hundreds of contaminants including chromium, chlorine, chlorination byproducts, lead, heavy metals, asbestos, iron, hydrogen sulfide and hard scale. The kdf is especially good heavy metals and chemical-based contaminants. The carbon is especially good at removing organic contaminants. The filtered water is somewhat softened without the addition of salts or chemicals. There are no membranes to replace.
Before you buy this filter, please be aware of the following. The media is one of the industry- proven effective fluoride filters, and of top quality. But we have seen greatly varying test results from the field. Those tests include some on the same water and the same filters. This has led us to regretfully conclude such tests cannot be relied upon.
In our experience, even fluoride lab tests often show false positives. Repeat the test, you will often get a different result. The media used has been extensively tested, proven and certified. These use the top quality certified materials. We don’t think there are better fluoride filters available. You can document bone char effectiveness with the Water Quality Association, the National Science Foundation, Wikipedia etc.. Other contaminant test results normally show correctly, although some variation in test results is normal.
The best proof of our fluoride filter effectiveness is shown by improved health by people made sick by fluoride. For one example, based on many people, please read the comments on this page from a naturopath.
A pre-filter is included with this item. How often you need to change the pre-filter inside varies depending upon how much sediment is in your water. Change once a year or if the water flow slows. We suggest that in the first year you check every few months so as to learn how often you should change it.

- Install instructions are sent with the unit. However, all the plumber needs to do is cut the filters into the water line, leaving a bypass line for when the filter media is being changed. It takes some hours, but it’s not complicated.
Atlanta & Fulton County GA Residents: In spring and again in fall, your municipal water supplier changes sources. This means that they open up pipes that haven’t been used for half a year. The first surge of water – and for a while – has very heavy organic concentration that is above normal and acceptable levels. (If you were to bypass the filter during this time, the water would smell better because the chlorine covers it. But the organics and other contaminants are still in your water.)
To address this, you need to get a special kdf pre-filter. A 10-inch filter will last for about 70,000 gallons. A 20-inch filter will last about 140,000 gallons. We recommend the larger one for convenience.
