Fluoride Filter Specs

This incredible technology offers the most effective removal of fluoride, providing non-detectable levels right at the beginning of the filter's life. With a capacity of 2000 liters, this filter is designed to provide long-lasting performance.

What makes the FluorEX Max truly remarkable is its all-natural, alumina-free composition. Unlike many other cartridges on the market, it leaves healthy minerals like calcium and magnesium in the water, (not like Reverse Osmosis Systems) creating a more balanced and enjoyable drinking experience. And the best part? It doesn't waste any water, unlike reverse osmosis systems.

In independent tests conducted by Ionza, the FluorEX Max was proven to remove fluoride with exceptional efficiency. Samples taken from Auckland City showed fluoride content of less than 0.05g/m3, making it virtually undetectable. We have tested many cartridges. Most of them had in common that they claim to remove 'up to 99% fluoride' and as Hill Laboratories, Hamilton NZ proved with samples taken by us, they did not! Most of them just took out 40-50% of fluoride, one achieved 78% but the water tasted bitter. Most of those contain alumina as media which is fraud with issues about aluminium leaching into the water. Additionally, this remarkable filter also removes heavy metals and arsenic, ensuring that your water is clean and safe. 

With a removal rate of 99% at the beginning of cartridge usage and approximately 90-95% after 2000 liters (*depending on water source and prefilter setup), the FluorEX Max delivers consistent and reliable performance. It has a capacity of 2000 liters or approximately 6-12 months, depending on water usage.

We highly recommend our Active Pure filter is installed upstream of the FluorEx filter to to remove heavy metals, so it protects the capacity of the FluorEX Max filter to focus on fluoride predominantly.

Capacity: 2000 litres, or 6-12months. This means approx 12 months for 1-2 person household, or 6 months for 4 person household (*depending on volume of water used).

Monitoring of usage: We recommend to install a water flow meter to monitor usage.

Water Flow rate: The FluorEX-Max filter is most effective to run at approx 1.5 liter/min. The flow rate can be set up by the installer or by yourself: If your water flow is greater than 2 litres/min (if it takes you approx 5 seconds or less to fill your cup with filtered water) your water flow is travelling too quickly.

Installation: If this is the first time installing this you will require a Slimline housing 10" - Please add this to your cart if you don't already have one

The tap water in Auckland City contains approximately 0.78g/m3 of fluoride content. However, after undergoing the FluorEX Max filtration process, the fluoride content in the water was significantly reduced to less than 0.05g/m3. This reduction in fluoride content resulted in the water being classified as non-detectable for fluoride

What are the steps to replace the fluorex Max filter?

To replace the filters under your sink, please follow these steps:

1) Shut off the water supply: Locate the shut-off valve for your water filter system and turn it off to stop the water flow.
2) Release pressure: Open a faucet connected to the system to relieve any pressure inside the filter housing.
3) Remove filter housing: Depending on the type of filter system you have, twist or unscrew the filter housing to remove it from the filter head. Use a filter wrench if needed.
4) Remove old filters: Take out the old filters from the housing and dispose of them properly.
5) Prepare new filters: Remove any protective packaging from the new filters.
6) Install new filters: Insert the new filters into the filter housing, following the recommended order or orientation provided depending on your installed system.
7) Reassemble the housing: Place the filter housing back onto the filter head and secure it by twisting or screwing it tightly. Ensure it is properly aligned and sealed.
8) Turn on the water supply: Turn the water supply back on and check for any leaks. Run water through the system for a few minutes. If you encounter any difficulties or have concerns, it is recommended to consult a professional or reach out to customer support for assistance.

If you encounter any difficulties or have concerns, it is recommended to consult a professional plumber or reach out to customer support for assistance.

Does this filter remove arsenic?

Yes, it can remove both forms of Arsenic (III & V), this data is from our internal research. Chemically speaking, Fluoride is even more difficult to remove than Arsenic and our system removed virtually all of it in independent testing.
