David,

Thanks for the post about water filtration systems here: www.fastingconnection.com/forum/Posts-fo...ith-each-fasting-day

As a result of your advise, I now have:

1) Rhino® Whole House Water Filter: www.aquasana.com/product_detail.php?product_id=27 . I am pleased with the results, it takes out chlorine and bath taking is more pleasurable, with no dry, itchy skin after. By the way, for anybody out there, if you buy one from them, give them a CALL first. I got 30% off the web price by talking to person on the phone.

2) For drinking water only, I have RO-PERM ULTRA REVERSE OSMOSIS® SYSTEM: www.freedrinkingwater.com/ro-perm-detail.htm . I like APEC system a lot, very clear instructions on how to install everything, only good quality Made in USA components. If I knew earlier that they also had whole house filters, I would have bought that from them as well :-) .
Hey anybody out there, if you buy water filtering systems from APEC as a results of this post, please mention my name 'borota' and you will bless me with a free replacement filter as a result, with no additional cost to you... They also donate filtering systems to US persons who really can't afford to buy one and suffer from some serious ailments.

To the Fast Doctor:
Can I get those Dolomite water post filters you talk about from somewhere? The water that I get out of RO system is VERY pure, too pure, I want to add some taste to it and was wondering if I could add some Dolomite based post filter to the system.

Anybody if you know where to get Dolomite based post filter, do let me know please.

Thanks,
Greg

I am not aware of such "post filter" dear Borota.. in Nature, the best filter is soil and those of us lucky enough to live in dolomitic areas find that after the rain water is filtered by the soil it ends up in the dolomites underground where it is matured (like good wine!) and from whence we extract it.

If you can get pure dolomite fragments and simply let those lie in the ultra-purified water for a while it will likely develop the same homeostasis.

Thank you Dr. André.
I got the wrong impression you had some kind of system to get that dolomite water. A post filter, as far as I know, works exactly like you say, it just forces pure water through some minerals. Didn't occur to me that I could "build" it myself.
Looks like one can buy dolomite, for example at Vitamin Shoppe: www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=VS-1366

HI Borota well done for the filter. You can build your own in-line post filter by adding whatever you want into an empty screw on cap cartridge. You can get chunks of dolomite, and also add far infra red ceramic beads. The only problem with your RO system is that unless you are mechanically minded you have to rely on a handyman or plumber to change the pre filters for you every six months. I now us a Dupont twist on system which anyone can change.

David, the system that I bought www.freedrinkingwater.com/ro-perm-detail.htm has very detail instruction on how to install and change filters yourself. Filters are very easy to change, they give you a key for that. Also I could install the whole system myself. The instructions are to install it under the sink but I installed it in the basement and now I have pure water in multiple places throughout the house.

Thanks for the info on how to install a dolomite post filter!

David, what are "far infra red ceramic beads"? Also what are they good for?

Borota I hear what you say about the the unit you have purchased and its great that you are technically minded. I have tried most systems on the market and found that type which is the most common a headache as the housing was not well manufactured and had to add an additional sealant to make them water tight. They should just require hand tightening for a water tight seal. The carbon post filter which comes with these units is often composed of coconut carbon and gives the water a bit more punch. I am experimenting with adding my own post filter cocktail. You can purchase the post filters as empty cartridges with a water tight screw on cap. Just make sure the connections on either end are of the push fit type. When I find a good reliable source of dolomite rock I will add that to the post filter and also the ceramic far infra red beads which I have been experimenting with. Here is a link from a friend's website.

bubblehouseworms.com/index.php?main_page...17_31&products_id=48

I tend to be slightly skeptical with this type of product but I have a bottle of water which has had these beads immersed in it for a couple of years and the water has not gone off yet. Admittedly not very scientific.

The other thing I would like to add to my post filter is bamboo charcoal which is also worth googling. Anyhow well done for taking action I would not live without a water filter and some of my customers would never go back to drinking London tap water.

David,
I owe you a lot for letting me know about this kind of filters. Thank you!
It’s such a relief to not have to buy bottled water, especially for cooking, thanks to the RO system. Also the other whole house system does take care of chlorine better than expected and water pressure is not affected that much.
Up to now I didn’t have any leaking problems, but these filters do need a special key to be tightened up properly. The housing has a rubber fitting, so once tightened up property, they can’t leak at all.
I bought today dolomite from Vitamin Shoppe here in US. But it’s crashed and compressed into pills, so it dissolves too quickly. I think I need to find real rock from some place, which I guess would not dissolve so fast.
The company I bought the system from does sell empty housings too ( www.freedrinkingwater.com/products/speci...eciality-filters.htm ), thanks for the idea. Interesting about ceramic beads, I wonder if The Fast Doctor knows something about the benefits of those. I remember now, where I grew up, there is lots of folklore about the benefits of ceramics; probably there is something to it.
Let’s keep each other informed. The problem that I am having right now for drinking is that RO water tastes too much like melted snow water, so I do need some more adjusting on mineral content. I do have 1 Omnipure Coconut Shell Refining Carbon 10" post filter and 1 calcium carbonate post filter ( www.freedrinkingwater.com/ww-fi-ph-water-filters.htm ), but it looks like I still need to experiment with more to get a taste closer to good tasting spring water.

Borota you need to look for this type of in line water filter housing

www.google.co.uk/imgres?imgurl=http://im...m%3Disch&um=1&itbs=1

I tried a post calcium filter and really didn't get on with the taste.
Best to make your own post filter. Actually I only use a post coconut filter and nearly everyone who tries the water prefers it over tap water. I guess its about re-educating your taste buds. I even have a client who believed all water tasted the same :) I am experimenting with other devices too such as vortex water. The theory is that water is de-energized when traveling through a straight conduit with 90 degree bends etc. Water in nature never travels in a straight line so some water connaisseurs believe that tap water is dead water even if it has been passed through an RO unit. The experiments although a little obscure show that plants tend to grow quicker and look healthier on energized water but whether this is just because of additional available oxygen in the water I wouldn't be able to say. The best people to look up are Viktor Shauberger, Theodore Schwenk and John Wilkes. One thing I would certainly keep away from are those ionizing and alkalizing units. When it gets time to maintain your unit let me know as there are a few things I can point out. This is the unit I am currently experimenting with. www2.dupont.com/Water_Filtration/en_US/p...lters_prod_page.html

Oddly they don't display the RO version. The good thing about them is that the housing connections are built into the manifold. Downside is that the replacement cartridges are smaller than what you have got so the RO only lasts for a year. Another positive is that it only takes 5 minutes to change all filters. With the housing that you have got bacteria tends to build up in the housing so you need to give them a good clean every 6 months. And the storage tank once a year to be on the safe side.

I forgot to say you are most welcome! I love the thought that you are finally getting pure water to drink and enjoy. Well as pure as is possible in an urban environment.

Thank you David for all the info. Haven't thought about the need to clean the housings and the tank, thanks for the heads-up. The water is "treated" with UV before getting into the filtering system, but not sure if that is enough to protect against bacteria build-up. I actually already cleansed the first filter only after couple of weeks, because it became brownish...
