Between what I've brought up to my husband and an article that was sent from an organic produce company we are ordering food from, my husband is really interested in getting a filtration system. He found this and it sounds like a pretty good deal. Do any of you have any experience with this model?

I don't have this particular model and my manufacturer is different because I'm not recognizing that name but.... looks great.... a 4 phase should do though and it'd probably be cheaper and would cost less to maintain over the long haul. A 5 phase might be overkill. You might want to hold off buying it though until you know if the unit uses standard filters you can pick up at Home Depot of if you're stuck buying filters from them. The unit we bought cost a little bit more out the gate but ended up costing us hundreds less annually because we could buy filters from most home improvement stores. The deal killer on these RO systems is whether you've got enough water pressure to run 1 or not. You'll have to find out what you're water pressure is and then maybe you better call the manufacturer and run it by their tech support so you're not out 1k.

Activist Post: Albuquerque, New Mexico Halts Water Fluoridation
Excerpt from above:
Quote:
The city of Albuquerque, New Mexico has made the auspicious decision to effectively end all artificial water fluoridation within the city’s water supply.

It was reported first by local news authority, KOB news channel 4, earlier this month that the city, in order to save money and consequently save the over half million local population from the many detrimental effects of fluoride in the water supply, had removed the addition entirely…

excerpts from above:
Quote:
Despite a history of the criticism of water fluoridation being characterized as “scare mongering via crazy water fluoridation conspiracy theories,” a study conducted by the Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and China Medical University in Shenyang, combining 27 other studies, “found strong indications that fluoride may adversely affect cognitive development in children.”

The study, which was actually a systematic review of other studies, was published on July 20, 2012 in Environmental Health Perspectives and mostly relied on research from China.

The researchers focused on...
