How to Filter Fluoride: Affordable Fluoride Water Purification Systems
Looking to filter fluoride from your water? Not sure which system to choose? In this post, I walk you through all the options. Whether you live in a rented apartment or own your own home, there is a fluoride water purification system that is right for you — and they are all very affordable — every system is less $350!
Why Filter Flouride?
If you've been reading my blog for a while you've read about the dangers of fluoride, and how fluoride causes acne, cysts, hormonal problems, cancer, bone loss, cavities, and many other health problems.
However, most water filters do not filter fluoride. You have to get special fluoride water purification systems to filter fluoride from your water. And it's not so easy to research… when you search for “fluoride water filter” on Amazon, a bunch of water filters come up in the search that do not filter fluoride. I wanted to write a comprehensive post listing all the water filters you can use to filter fluoride. However, I don't want to list any that I don't trust so I'm going to limit this post to the ones I know are good. I will update this post over time, as I find more fluoride water filters, so please check back.
I use water that is filtered for fluoride for the water we drink, the ice in our ice maker, and all the water I cook with. The reason I think it is so important to use a water filter to filter fluoride is because fluoride is cumulative. It's not only in your drinking water, but in processed foods, non-organic foods, etc. Please see my post on the Top Sources of Fluoride.
1. How to Filter Fluoride: Reverse Osmosis Fluoride Purification Systems
We have a reverse osmosis fluoride filter in our home. You can either install it yourself or hire a plumber or handyman for not much money to help you install it under your sink. Our reverse osmosis filter is linked to our fridge, so it also filters fluoride from the water we get from our fridge dispenser and filters the water we use to make ice.
This reverse osmosis filter is on sale right now — you can save 15%. I'm not sure how long this sale will last.
List price: $189.64
Deal price: $154.39
You save: $27.25 (25%)
BUY IT HERE
One note: The reverse osmosis filter does remove the minerals from the water. So ideally you will want to replace the minerals at least in the bone broth you make, your cooking water, and your drinking water. A good way to do that is to order Concentrace drops.
2. How to Filter Fluoride: Berkey Gravity Fluoride Purification Systems
Berkey water filters are fabulous. When we rented a condo when Kate was little, we used this exact system and it worked great. For under $300, you can get everything you need to filter your water on your counter by ordering this Berkey with the fluoride filters included. This is the perfect solution if you rent or don't have room for a reverse osmosis system under the sink.
I also like Berkeys because they do not remove the minerals from the water like reverse osmosis systems do.
List price: $279.24
BUY IT HERE
This link is for the Big Berkey, which is a good size for a family of 1-4. If you have a larger family, you can also find larger Berkeys on Amazon.
Note: For all of these fluoride water purification systems, you do need to replace the filters regularly. Please see the Amazon links to determine when you need to change the filters — you can also order the replacement filters from Amazon, which makes it very easy.
UPDATE: I am not sure if I still recommend Berkeys for removing fluoride. I am looking into this. Apparently there was research done showing the Berkeys do not adequately remove fluoride. Watch this space for an update coming soon…
3. How to Filter Fluoride: Chloramine + Fluoride Inline Refrigerator Water Filter

Here's another option that will filter the fluoride from the water and ice in your fridge. This would also be a good option if you have a Berkey but also want fluoride-free ice from your ice maker.
This fluoride filter is universal so it will work with all models of refrigerators.

6. How to Filter Fluoride: APEX Whole House GAC Water Filter System with Activated Alumina for Fluoride Removal
If you are looking for a whole house water filter that removes fluoride, you can get one for only $350. Yes, you read that right. So inexpensive!
This APEX Whole House GAC Water Filter System removes fluoride from all the water in your home.
I'm actually going to buy one of these systems. We have the reverse osmosis filter in the kitchen, but I love to take baths. I want fluoride-free bath water, since we do absorb fluoride via our pores. Why do you think epsom salt bath works to absorb magnesium? And fluoride blocks magnesium absorption.
Keep in mind, this whole house filter only removes 70-93% of the fluoride in your water. So you might want to get int in conjunction with one of the other filters. If you want to get ALL the fluoride out, you could do like I'm doing and use both the whole house filter in addition to the reverse osmosis for drinking water and cooking. I would especially recommend a setup like this if you are trying to reverse health problems caused by fluoride (such as cavities, cysts, migraines, acne, cellulite, cancer, etc.).
It looks like this APEX Whole House GAC Water Filter System is pretty easy to install, although you probably need a plumber or handyman to help. Here's a picture from one of the Amazon reviews showing what it looks like installed:
List price: $350.00
