®Over the past ten years a large body of peer-reviewed science has raised concerns that fluoride may present unreasonable health risks, particularly among children, at levels routinely added to tap water in American cities.® ENVIRONMENTAL WORKING GROUP, July 2005.
Fluoride (F-) is a common constituent of many minerals. Municipal water treatment plants commonly add fluoride to the water for prevention of tooth decay, and they try to maintain a level of 1.5 - 2.5 mg/l. Concentrations above 5 mg/l are detrimental to tooth structure. High concentrations are contained in waste water from the manufacture of glass and steel, as well as from foundry operations. Organic fluorine is present in vegetables, fruits, and nuts. Inorganic fluorine, under the name of sodium fluoride, is a waste product of aluminum and is used in some rat poisons. The MCL established for drinking water by the US EPA is 4 mg/l.
CRYSTAL QUEST® Fluoride Water Filters are utilizing high capacity synthetic absorbent media that is highly selective for FLUORIDE , lead and arsenic. This high capacity synthetic absorbent media's extremely high surface area and pore distribution gives this media the highest possible operating capacity and lowest possible leakage. It is a synthetic aluminum oxide that is specially processed to have a minimum of fines and other foreign matter, removes metals through a combination of adsorption and chemical reaction with the media, thus the removal is not dependent on ion exchange and has a uniform particle size similar to ion exchange resins. It has minimal shrinkage or swelling and low pressure loss. It is physically stable and can be used over a wide pH range.
Water travels through 6 stages of filtration
In stage 1, water travel through a FLUORIDE REMOVAL cartridge. Containing synthetic Aluminum Oxide absorbant media. Specifically designed to have a high affinity for Fluoride, Lead and Arsenic. It removes metals through a mixture of adsorption and chemical reaction with the media, therefore, the elimination is not reliant on ion exchange. It has uniform particle size, is physically stable and can be used over a wide pH range.
Capacity: 2700 ppm Fluoride (Avg. 600 to 900 Gallons) .* As high as 6600 ppm F+ with effluent levels below 0.2 ppm from 10 ppm F+ feed.*

Thank you for keeping my family and I (and our pet cat, Maria!) fluoride free! Review by sarah hi
I purchased this because I noticed that even with our refrigerator's filter, there was still a gross taste in our water. There was also disgusting white residue around the water spigots and the water tray area of the fridge door where you can get water. After adding this filter, which was very easy to install, the taste went away and the fridge door stays CLEAN finally! Now, I can't even order water from a restaurant because the taste is so strong from our pure and fresh fridge water. Thank you for keeping my family and I (and our pet cat, Maria!) fluoride free!
