DOES REVERSE OSMOSIS REMOVE FLUORIDE ?

While researching the question “does reverse osmosis remove fluoride? “, we found other methods that also remove fluoride
from tap water. Upon completing our research, the question became “does reverse osmosis remove fluoride better
than other methods.”


Removing Fluoride From Water

Four methods for removing fluoride from water include distillation, bone char filtration, reverse osmosis and activated alumina filtration.
Fluoride is a very small ion – atomic number 9 – and cannot be filtered out of water by commonly-used sediment or carbon filters.


Distillation, boiling water in one chamber and capturing it in another, requires a great deal of time and energy. Distillation can
remove up to 60% of fluoride from water, however, this method is generally very inefficient and not used for whole house fluoride removal
from water.

Bone char is carbon produced by charring cattle bones. It absorbs fluoride the same way our bones do – ion exchange. Bone
char can be used as a media in whole house filters. It absorbs up to 90% of fluoride from water. However, since bone char is
produced from cattle, there is the concern that unless the source of the media can be verified, it may have come from diseased
animals, potentially contaminating the water being purified. Only use bone char purchased from a very reputable source.


Reverse osmosis, forcing water through a semi-permeable membrane can eliminate up to 98% of fluoride from tap water. Many
point of use reverse osmosis systems which typically provide water only to a faucet in the kitchen are very efficient and cost
effective. However, fluoride can be absorbed in the body through the skin and inhaled during showering so it’s important to
remove fluoride from ALL water in the home. To effectively protect one against excess fluoride absorption a whole house
reverse osmosis system would be required to treat all water used in the house. However, a whole house water filter system
designed specifically to remove fluoride from all water in the house is a more economical solution. One such filter uses
activated alumina oxide.


Activated alumina oxide is a natural mineral used as media in whole house filtration of water to remove fluoride. Its use to remove
fluoride is not only approved, but also recommended by the EPA. Fluoride is absorbed by activated alumina to remove up to 98%
of fluoride from water. APEC Water is one company that produces a reasonably-priced, very efficient whole house filter to remove
fluoride.

The Preferred Fluoride Removal Method

It’s clear that either reverse osmosis or activated alumina oxide is both highly effective and cost-efficient in the removal of fluoride
from tap water. Fluoride can be absorbed through the skin and inhaled during bathing and showering. For this reason, whenever
possible, fluoride should be removed from all water at the whole house level instead of treating only drinking water. While whole
house reverse osmosis systems are available, they cost far more to purchase, install, operate and maintain than a fluoride-removing
whole house water filter system. For maximum fluoride removal from water at the lowest price it is recommended that you contact
APEC Water.

Their water specialists will ensure that you get the best fluoride removal system for your individual situation.


Why Remove Fluoride?

Isn’t It Necessary For Healthy Teeth?

According to information provided by the University of Nebraska, a fluoride level greater than 3 parts per million can lead to health
problems and the discoloration of teeth. Many municipalities add approximately 1 part per million of fluoride to their water supply.
This should be a safe level, but in many parts of the country fluoride occurs naturally as ions of minerals in the ground water.
When municipalities add fluoride to water that already contains these higher naturally-occurring fluoride levels, the amount of
total fluoride present in the water can become unhealthy for consumption, absorption and/or inhalation (bath/shower).

Have your water tested. If it tests for more than 3 ppm fluoride.

Contact APEC Water about removing it.


Symptoms of Fluoride Overdose

The most common symptom of fluoride overdose is white spotting of the teeth. Toothpaste generally contains
low levels of fluoride that present no risks unless swallowed.

IN SUMMARY

To summarize, “Does reverse osmosis remove fluoride?” Yes, but fluoride-removing whole house water filters offer
better protection against inhalation and skin absorption while being more economical than reverse osmosis.
Water specialists at APEC Water can help. Contact them and ask, “does reverse osmosis remove fluoride
any better than their whole house fluoride removal filter?”
