MoonStarFalling Which 10 stage filter removes the fluoride? The new wave enviro is $100 but it says it does not remove fluoride. I did see this fluoride filter for $99.

I was spending $5/week on bottled water prior to buying one and felt awful about how much plastic I was wasting. We love our 10-stage water filter.
In the long run, I do want to get a filter, but right now, we don't have an extra $100. I'm glad to know there's a faucet-mounted one out there! In my preliminary research, all I found was a $250 counter top one!

We live in the city, so local well water is hard to come by. The in-laws have it, though, so maybe we could stock up when we visit them for Easter!! Great idea!

LDSmomma Are the bottles of drinking water sold in grocery stores fluoride-free? How can I find out?? Does it say on the bottle?? I know some are "from a municipal source", so I imagine those have fluoride, but what about "filtered" water, or "spring" water??

I noticed spots on DS's teeth tonight, so I'm working to rid our family of fluoridated water, on the cheap.
