Does anyone know the best whole house water filter that removes fluoride and other chemicals while leaving in the beneficial minerals?

I don't know of a whole house size filter that will do this at a reasonable cost. The fluoride that is added to municipal water supplies is an extremely tiny compound molecule, and passes right through carbon filters. The only filter that I know that will remove fluoride is reverse osmosis, which strips everything else out also, so minerals need to be added back.

We got our water filter from Doulton USA

Looks like they can do Whole House Systems

We have a counter top filter for drinking/cooking water and a shower head filter for the bathroom. We're lucky that the municipal water in our area is not fluoridated, we just have to worry about chlorine and run off contamination. I'm pretty sure their US distribution is all through the same guy, he's very friendly and happy to answer all your questions.

Zach - where are you? We have a whole house reverse osmosis system that we don't need. If you want it we can talk. PM me.
Tick check! Okay, I guess that was just an itch. Oh wait! Just a tiny ad:
