    Friends of water filters for fluoride and chlorine

    Primal Fuel
    I need to order something inexpensive to filter my water. I'm most concerned with fluoride and chlorine. This product was recommended on a yahoo thyroid group.

    Water Filter Pitcher greatly reduces FLUORIDE!

    Has anyone used this brand before?

    I couldn't find any reviews for it. Unfortunately, I've been buying the big plastic jugs at the grocery store so I need to do something different ASAP.

    I'm not familiar with that filter. I usually let a jug of tap water sit on the counter for a couple days to let the chlorine evaporate.

    I wouldnt imagine anything short of reverse osmosis or distillation would remove most of the flouride. Chlorine is easy enough.

    Distillation is the best way to get the purest water. Lots of distillers on the market, and if you are handy, you should be able to make one out of a pressure cooker, if you can find one....

    I use a counter top distiller from WaterWise. It can make about 6 gallons of water a day. I use a filter for the shower to get rid of the chlorine for showers and baths.

    Wouldn't you need to add minerals back to distilled water? I thought it wasn't good to drink.

    Thanks for all the replies! I've looked at some countertop reverse osmosis filters. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. Berkey is another brand I've heard of but I came across reviews talking about mold growing in them.

    Namelesswonder- from what I understand, water doesn't have enough minerals to really count for much anyway.

    I haven't had any problems for the last 5 years. I figure I'm getting plenty from the foods I eat. Although, I may be living in a fools paradise
