Our Whole-House Fluoride System uses premium-grade activated alumina media to effectively remove fluoride from the water throughout the entire home. This is important because fluoride exposure doesn't just occur from drinking water but also from inhalation through the lungs and absorption through your skin. Designed specifically for whole house filtration, this system supports a high service flow rate per bed size with superior particle strength to sustain regular backwashing.
We use premium activated aluminum AA400 which has a very high capacity for fluoride adsorption and was specifically designed to remove soluble fluoride from water. This porous media has a large surface-area-to-weight ratio which greatly improves metal adsorption and lasts up to 4-6 years under general tap water fluoride levels (1ppm), making it one of the most effective and longest lasting fluoride filters available on the market.
Designed to be the ultimate fluoride removal solution, the Whole-House Fluoride system incorporates an pre-programed electronic control head to automatically backwash and redistribute the media on a regular basis. This self-cleaning feature greatly enhances its performance and service life while eliminating the extra costs, maintenance and need for prefilters. It is truly a set and forget it system! You will be able to protect your family from the harmful effects of fluoridated water at every faucet and outlet in your home for many years to come! .5 CU FT Activated Alumina

As the filter operates in service mode, it collects particles in the filter bed. Also, since water's nature is to follow the path of least resistance, after a time it begins to cut channels through the medium. As channels or holes in the media bed form, water begins to flow around rather than through the medium. This process is called "channeling" and it reduces the effectiveness of the filter considerably.
The backwash is accomplished by sending the water down the riser tube from which it enters the filter tank at the bottom. The force of the water is such that it actually lifts the media bed, swirling and tossing the granular medium. The water leaves the filter tank through the control valve, which routes it through the filter's drain line. Particles that were in the bed are washed to drain. The backwash is an intense rinsing and tossing of the medium that lasts for several minutes. In a standard residential filter, a typical backwash lasts about ten minutes.
After the backwash, the controls initiate a "rinse" of the bed during which water flows downward through the medium, up through the distribution tube and out the drain. The purpose of this rinse is to rinse and settle the bed and prepare it for return to service flow. A regular backwash cycle prolongs the efficiency of the filter as well as provides cleaner water for your home.
