â€œOver 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.â€ 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 QUESTÂ® 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 8 stages of filtration
In stage 1, water travels through a a solid carbon cartridge for removing volatile organic carbon compounds (VOC's, insecticides, pesticides and industrial solvents).* Provides (12-18 months)* of quality safe and pure water.
Option: Ultraviolet Water Sterilizer
provides an economical way of treating water requiring a 99.99% reduction of bacteria and virus and protozoa. This process is accomplished without adding any harmful chemicals to your drinking water. CRYSTAL QUESTÂ® Ultraviolet Water Sterilizer System is the most ecological way of treating your waterâ€¦ and all for just pennies a day!

I strongly recommend this filter to anyone Review by Matt
I purchased the undersink triple fluoride filter a month ago and love it. The difference in the smell and taste of the tap water is night and day after filtered. I would venture to say that my filtered tap water tastes better than the dollar a gallon spring water I have been drinking for the last six years. This filter will save me an average of $500 a year since I no longer need to buy bottled water. The filter system is made in America and I installed it in less than an hour. I strongly recommend this filter to anyone who enjoys pure and odorless drinking water. (Posted on 7/11/2014)
Clean drinking water is the foundation for good health, and this system delivers! Review by Tom Steidel
After reading a myriad of reviews on a number of undersink water filtration systems, we settled upon this one. The criteria that ruled out other systems, and left this model as the only viable alternative, included the removal of volatile organic carbon compounds (VOCs), insecticides, pesticides, cysts, micro-organisms, heavy metals, bacterial, fungi, scale and, of course, chlorine and fluorides. Clean drinking water is the foundation for good health, and this system delivers! We've relied exclusively on it for several years, having abandoned bottled water that is more costly, more troublesome, and most probably sold in plastic containing Bis-Phenol Acetate, a proven health hazard. I don't hesitate to rate this system most highly, and to recommend it to all of my friends. (Posted on 9/29/2012)
The water tastes great and I know that my family is drinking the purest safest water possible. Review by Chris Langenegger
We Love the taste of our water. Thank you for a great product. It was easy to install under the sink and ready to work in almost no time at all. The water tastes great and I know that my family is drinking the purest safest water possible. Thanks. Chris Langenegger Austin, TX (Posted on 9/27/2012)
I'm delighted with the purchase. Review by Kirk Hoefler
This was well worth the cost. Much better than my carbon filtration system I had before. The water tastes great! The installation is heavy duty; something you would expect for a commercial install. It was a little larger than I expected and took more work to get it to fit in my under the sink than I was expecting but was worth the effort. I'm delighted with the purchase. (Posted on 9/13/2011)
