If you are looking to remove fluoride from more than just your kitchen sink, a whole house system will work for you. This system removes fluoride from every tap in one convenient system.
This entire house with 1 cubic foot of bone charcoal. You can also choose to add a 10″ Big Blue House Sediment Pre-Filter (recommended).
1 cubic foot of bone charcoal will remove approximately 1.0 mg/l fluoride. Bone charcoal is known to be one of the most effective methods to remove any form of fluoride from your drinking water. Bone charcoal is also very effective at removing heavy metals, pesticides and chlorine.
1 Cubic Feet System:
9” x 48” Mineral Tank
IN / OUT valve
1 CUBIC FEET BONE FLUORIDE REMOVER – Pre-filled in tank
WHOLE HOUSE 1 CU FT BONE CHAR COAL + IN/OUT VENT.
This system is easy to set up. With this system you will receive:
9″ x 48″ FRP container. Colors black/blue/almond
1 CU FT Bone Char Blend Carbon Prefilled in tank
1″ in/out ports.
The use of bone char or bone charcoal has been reported to be an effective means of reducing fluoride. Bone char contains a carbon structure while supporting a porous hydroxyapatite matrix (a calcium phosphate hydroxide in crystalline form that is rich in surface ions that can be easily replaced by fluoride ions). Adsorption and ion exchange are believed to be the mechanism for fluoride reduction in bone charring. This filter also works like regular carbon. A whole-house filter system treats all water coming to any faucet or fixture in the home. It removes the chemical before it can be ingested, inhaled or absorbed by the skin during washing or bathing. A larger carbon filter like this provides better filtration due to the amount of carbon and the depth of the filter bed. It does not cause a water pressure drop in your home compared to a solid block charcoal filter installed at the point of entry. Carbon removes/reduces many volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), pesticides and herbicides, as well as chlorine, benzene, trihalomethane (THM) compounds, radon, solvents and hundreds of other man-made chemicals found in tap water. Carbon is a substance with a long history of being used to absorb impurities and is perhaps the most powerful absorbent known. One pound of carbon contains about 125 acres of surface area and can absorb literally thousands of different chemicals. Activated carbon, which has a slight electro-positive charge, making it even more attractive to chemicals and impurities. This filter contains 1 cu ft of bone charcoal media.
What else can it remove?
Bone charcoal can not only reduce fluoride, it can also reduce or remove cadmium, lead, iron, manganese, mercury, zinc, copper, nickel, aluminum, arsenic, fertilizers, radionuclides, herbicides, pesticides, radium and uranium. It has also been shown to remove tributyl tin oxide, nuvan and malochite green.
How long does it last?
Whereas whole house systems can handle about 100,000 gallons. This varies depending on your usage and fluoride levels, but the average four-person family should only need a yearly filter change. By having bulk bone char on hand, you can switch it out at any time.
