Default removing fluoride from drinking water

Hey,

I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for removing fluoride out of drinking water? I've looked at some fluoride filters and they are all look look pretty technical and cost more than i would like to pay..

I currently have a Nikken pimag water filter (http://www.enikken.com.au/info/tech/...imag_water.htm) which is cleaning out my water (my ceramic filter gets so yellow after only a week!), helps in removing chlorine and balancing the minerals with the stones in it, but as far as I'm aware it doesn't remove fluoride.

Any ideas or recommendations would be great!

How well does that filter work? I have been looking at purchasing one for a while now.

Thanks Yael, that seems to be one of the ones i came across when doing a search.. fairly expensive and technical looking! Although i did spend only a little bit less on my current filter. The troubles of getting out chemicals from our water.. If those filters are the only options for removing fluoride i guess I'll be looking into it further.

I've stopped using toothpaste with fluoride, which is a start i guess.. but i drink A LOT of water, especially now it's summer here and my house is like an oven.

I'm a Multipure distributor; I could get you a discount if you want.
