Fluoride in Water UK

Fluoride in water is a hot topic right now with the recent statement by the UK’s Chief Medical Officers on fluoridation of water in the UK.

Here’s a link to the statement - https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/water-fluoridation-statement-from-the-uk-chief-medical-officers/statement-on-water-fluoridation-from-the-uk-chief-medical-officers#introduction----the-impact-of-dental-decay

As an online retailer we’re not going to get involved in the debate as to the perceived rights and wrongs of more widespread fluoridation of the UK’s water supply, but we do feel it’s the correct thing to do to provide solutions for people who do not agree with adding fluoride to water and wish to remove it.

There is so much information out there about this topic. A good source of information is Defra and the Drinking Water Inspectorate

Here at Fountain Filters, we help people when they want to filter fluoride out of their water, and we have a few water filter systems that will help people filter out up to 93% of fluoride in water.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in water and some foods. The amount of naturally occurring fluoride in water varies across the UK due to geological differences.

Water fluoridation schemes involve adding fluoride to drinking water supplies in areas of low natural fluoride, increasing the level to that known to reduce tooth decay. The need to reduce tooth decay in children and adults is the key driver for the water fluoridation scheme.

Areas in the UK that already have fluoride added to mains water supplies

  • Most of Northumberland (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • Most of west Cumbria (artificially fluoridated up to a max of 0.99mg/l)
  • County Durham around Hartlepool (naturally occurring up a max of 1.5mg/l in some areas)
