I also have a Waterwise. I think they are great units but they can't remove flouride. The flouride molecule is smaller than the water molecule.
I use a Berkey before Waterwise but I have been greatly disappointed by it's ability to remove flouride. I have the flouride/chlorine filters as the second stage. The filters use alumina to grab the flouride.
I searched the web for a way to remove by precipitation but could find nothing.
There must be a way to add a chemical to bind to the flouride but I can't seem to find anything. I can't just add alumina as the measurement would have to be precise.
My city water is VERY high in flouride. As I remember it is at the max level allowed for human consumption. The Berkey filters stop working to remove flouride after about 1200 gallons.
Anyone have any ideas for removing flouride OR a way to rejuvenate the Berkey flouride filters? They are way too expensive to buy every 1200 gallons.
Just in case someone thinks of it RO systems won't remove flouride either. Again, the molecule for flouride is smaller than the water molecule.
