Hey gang, My family wants to install a reverse osmosis filter. (Thanks, by the way, to Dean and Michael for encouragement on this, which via me led to the decision. See threads What Kind of Water Do You Drink? and Cool Tools for Practicing CR for some relevant discussion.) They've settled on the Home Master TMAFC Artesian Full Contact Reverse Osmosis Under Counter Water Filtration System. More expensive than some (such as the Purinex), but it has some features they want. I'm still pretty clueless here, but they've asked me for advice. Anyone see any non-obvious downsides to the Home Master they/we might have missed? Thanks, Zeta
Please consider: Public Health Rep. 1954 Oct;69(10):925-36. Medical aspects of excessive fluoride in a water supply. LEONE NC, SHIMKIN MB, ARNOLD FA Jr, STEVENSON CA, ZIMMERMANN ER, GEISER PB, LIEBERMAN JE. PMID: 13204526 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] PMCID: PMC2024409 Free PMC Article http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2024409/pdf/pubhealthreporig00178-0039.pdf "A well-controlled 10-year epidemiological study of two population groups shows that excess amounts of fluoride in a water supply do not produce gross physical defects." "No significant differences between the findings in the two towns were observed, except for a slightly higlher rate of cardiovascular abnormalities in Cameron and a marked predominance of dental fluorosis in Bartlett."
