Brita Filter

Brita Filter Fluoride

Brita filter fluoride removal does not get rid of all the fluoride deposits in water, but it does deal with some of the problem. Tap water may be fit to drink in the UK and does not have to be boiled first as it does in many countries abroad, but it can have an unpleasant odour and taste. The smell and taste of the water is often due to the presence of mineral deposits, small amounts of lead and copper, and chlorine. While chlorine and fluoride are used in the purification process the fact that they can make tap water unpleasant to drink, led to a rise in the sale of bottled water.


Reducing Flouride

When you use a Brita filter fluoride is not totally removed but it does lessen the amount of fluoride in the water and the effects that it can have on the hardness of tap water and its smell and taste. In recent months an increasing number of people have given up buying bottled water, the health effects of which are often overrated, some users have also been put off by the plastic odour that often accompanies bottled water. More people now prefer to use a Brita water filtration system and a reusable water bottle for drinking water on the go.

Over the last year or two the cost of bottled water has risen dramatically and more people are cutting back on their outgoings and as a result the sale of bottled water is now on the decline. With a Brita filter fluoride and chlorine deposits are reduced and the water is softer and more pleasant to drink. Brita uses a double filtrations system for purifying water and removing unwanted deposits. The Brita cartridges are made from a combination of activated carbon and ion exchange resin, which is a process that has been found to be suitable for water filtration for more than forty years.

Brita filter fluoride and chlorine removal makes a huge difference to your hot drinks and allows the natural flavour of your tea or coffee to take over. Some Brita filter users even say that when they use filtered water for cooking, vegetables tend to hold their shape, colour and natural flavour much more easily. Because Brita filters are used to filter out the undesirable elements from tap water, this can lead to a build up of deposits on the filter. Brita recommends that filters should be changed at least every three to four months to avoid cross contamination and to ensure that the filter is working as it should.

There is some argument as to the extent of Brita filter fluoride removal but most users will say that their water is definitely softer and better tasting since they started using a filtration system. Brita filter cartridges are available in packs of three or four, which is not only more convenient when it comes to changing the filter, but it can also be cheaper to buy a pack rather than an individual replacement filter.
