The FluorideMaster whole house filter system filters fluoride out of typical municipal water. Its a more reasonable option than the whole house reverse osmosis systems. Its not perfect, but at less than $1,100 it is reasonable. It uses a large amount of bone char, which does an excellent job with typical municipal water, and it has a 6 month money back guarantee. The after-the-sale support has been very good for us. Maintainance is straightforward and not a burden, time-wise or money-wise.
Installing a good quality whole house filter for chlorine was our priority upon learning of the dangers of the contaminants in our municipal water, especially chlorine and chlorine by-products, which caused asthma-like reactions in the shower. They also contribute to thyroid problems and cardivascular disease. How? Chlorine replaces iodine in the thyroid gland, which then malfunctions, which leads to hypothyroidism and weight gain. Chlorine in the bloodstream damages blood vessels continuously and the body is constantly repairing all of the damage without a break: slowly, calcification of the arteries occurs. For chlorine filtration our family decided on the PureMaster V-700 whole house system. It also filters out heavy metals, and other contaminants, including - chloramines, cysts, copepods, VOCs, atrazine, benzene, xylene, pesticides, insecticides, herbicides. It had a great price for its large capacity and after-the-sale support has been very good.
The PureMaster/FluorideMaster combo is a good deal.
