Note: The Activated Alumina in the filter forms a chemical reaction with the fluoride and removes it from the water, essentially trapping it in the filter. But only has a certain capacity to do so. Once capacity is reached, it loses it effectiveness to absorb the fluoride. Important to replace annually or sooner.
