Multistage Fluoride Cartridge by CRYSTAL QUEST, a standard 10"x2.5" replacement cartridge with 7 stages of filtration process. It is a specialty water filter cartridge that includes fluoride removal. This filter contains fine-mesh pre-resin media(CQ-900) in the unit to reduce flouride below 0.5 ppm. Capacity is 2700 ppm fluoride. As high as 6,000 ppm F+ with effluent levels below 0.2 ppm from 10 ppm feed. The added combination of Granulated Activated Carbon(GAC) and Eagle Redox Alloy media increases the systems' effectivity in removing hundreds of other contaminants from your tap water.
Fluoride is commonly known to be used on dental products. It is a naturally occurring element which is present in water and soil at varying levels. Municipal water treatment plants commonly add fluoride to the water for prevention of tooth decay and maintain a regulated concentration for safety. Today, fluoride has found its way to our homes in more ways you can imagine. From dental products to food, beverages, medicines and even utensils that cause an increase of fluoride content in food. Fluoride may cause health problems if present in public or private water supplies in amounts greater than the drinking water standard set by EPA. According to the EPA, exposure to excessive consumption of fluoride over a lifetime may lead to increased likelihood of bone fractures in adults, and may result in effects on bone - leading to pain and tenderness. With all these, the last thing you want is fluoride in your water.
