Wow, found a Fluoride Filter that is cheap and should last up to 3 years! No more flouride in our water. It will pay for itself within 6 weeks! Plus it is eco-friendly because we will no longer be buying bottled water.
If you have read our green home improvement list, you will notice that number (4) is "Add a water filter system -- that removes fluoride, yet also is high PH. This was posing a problem, because when we have researched these types of water filter systems, they seem much too expensive for us.
Below is the Description of the Fluoride Filter we just ordered ...
Fluoride Multi Plus Water Filter No Cartridge
Countertop Disposable Single Fluoride Multi PLUS Water Filter System is dependable and built to last for years. This counter top system installs in seconds and sits on the counter top for water on demand. Quick and easy to use,stylish convenient, and effectively removes FLUORIDE and hundreds of contaminants from water. Water travels through 6 stages of filtration
NOTE: Regarding above price. The price of the Fluroide Filter for your Countertop fluctuates. However, if you click on the above link, the first price shown is $117 with Free Shipping. If you look below the first price, you should see (2) new from $109.00 -- yet shipping charges are $6.99.
So, we have found a very CHEAP fluoride filter system that removes fluoride from water for the kitchen counter / sink that we can use for drinking water and cooking water. Therefore that "to do" is solved. Yet, our city water is slightly acidic and I (personally) need to drink at least neutral ph water 7.4 and above, as I tend to be too acidic.
Water filters that raise the PH of water seem to be very expensive. A good one can cost upward to $3000 -- See below for an example of one that has high 5 star ratings and good reviews ...
Jupiter Orion Water Ionizer - Model JP109 - 5 Yr. Warranty
Used From: $995.00
With a great value price, super reliability, new Biostone filter, fully automated features, 9 levels of pH, strongest ORP and five year warranty, the Jupiter Orion JP109 has been the preferred choice for the USA and for such authorities as Sang Whang (author of Reverse Aging) and Dr Robert Young (author of The pH Miracle). Although now on the market for about two years, no other company has yet produced a model like the Orion, that always gives alkaline water - even when it cleans. No other company offers a Biostone filter as fine as .01M with tourmaline and no other model is as yet as reliable or powerful. With Jupiter's newest mesh-type plating technology, the Orion is one of the finest ionizers on the market today.
In addition, they sometimes are hard to install and you also have to have a special filter to remove fluoride (from what I understand).
With these types of PH+ Alkalize Water Filter systems out of reach for now, to solve the problem of raising the PH of our water we drink and use for cooking, I ordered Alkaline pH Booster Drops that you add to your water to increase its PH properties.
