Home Master TMJRF2 Review
Fluoride has been added to the public water to stop tooth decay. It is also found in most of the toothpaste in the market. Although the World Health Organization and FDI World Dental Federation confirmed that it is safe to consume, we still don’t wish to consume any fluoride in our bodies.
The Home Master Water Filter System TMJR2 is one of the few countertop systems which removes 93% of the fluoride. Besides Fluoride, the single canister filter also reduces arsenic, chlorine, and chemical such as VOC, TOC.
Meanwhile, it retains all the beneficial minerals such as magnesium and calcium in the filtered water.
3 Stage System
Although all 3 stages are in one canister filter, it does a good job in removing major contaminants found in city waters.
- Activated Alumina – Reduce fluoride and arsenic
- Coconut Shell Carbon – Reduce chloride, VOC, pesticide, herbicide and other chemical.
- 5 Micron Compression Disk – Filter larger particles such as sand & dust
The Home Master Water Filter TMJR2 is portable like some other countertop water filters in the market. With a few twists from the faucet, you can easily remove the whole system out of the house.
There is only one step of installation after the pipe is connected to the filter. You just need to connect the faucet piece to your kitchen faucet and it is done. You can refer to the installation video below:
