How often do Barrier pitchers need to replaced?
Each Barrier filter will treat approximately 80 gallons of water (varies depending upon water quality). The cartridge should be replaced after 3 months regardless of the amount of treated water.
Do the Barrier filters remove fluoride?
Fluoride can be removed with reverse osmosis, distilling or with activated aluminum. The Barrier Pitchers do not contain activated aluminum, as it tends to dump in high concentrations what it has already filtered. New Wave Enviro Inc. has also chosen not to use activated aluminum due to the link between aluminum and Alzheimer’s Disease. Reverse osmosis is the better option, but it, too, has limitations: it takes 2-3 gallons of tap water to make 1 gallon of R.O. water; also, reverse osmosis removes everything from the water, including good minerals. Persons whose primary source of drinking water is R.O. water will need to add mineral supplements back into their diet.
