The US EPA limit for fluoride in water is 4 ppm, with a recommended level of 2 ppm to protect against cosmetic dental effects linked to excessive fluoride consumption. Drinking water with fluoride levels above 2ppm can lead to mottling of the teeth enamel or discoloration of the permanent teeth. In certain cases, the teeth become chalky white in appearance. And, too much fluoride in your drinking water may increase the potential for bones fractures. Exposure to drinking water levels above 4 ppm for many years may result in cases of serious bone disorder and abnormal fragility of the bones.
The FI-FLUORIDE utilizes granular activated alumina media that can easily reduce fluoride levels from 0.5 ppm to less than 0.1 ppm. The activated alumina is a synthetic aluminum oxide that removes fluoride more selectively. It is widely used in the water treatment industry for its effective fluoride removal properties.
For maximum effectiveness, do not exceed the recommended flow of 0.1 GPM. This filter lasts for 4500 ppm with effluent levels below 0.2 ppm - 10 ppm feed (approximately 1,125 gallons).
