If you have bought a filter to take out the fluoride than I regret to inform you it won't. Reverse osmosis system is the only method available that I know of for you to purchase. Perhaps that is what you have? Check it. That was an extremely good deal if that is what you bought with $100.
The reason why you can't filter it out from water is fluoride molecules are smaller than water molecules. Fluoride molecules are small enough to be absorbed through your skin when you stand under the shower. About 50% of the fluoride taken up from the city water supply is via skin contact. BTW this should be the red flag if you are not sure why mass medicating people to address tooth decay by supplementing the water supply with the stuff is irrational just on the face of it.
Fluoride gets stored in your bones and unless you have adequate iodine in your diet from the get go and consistent too your store of fluoride just keeps building up, never passing out of your body. Eventually it is going to result in brittle bones and result in hip fractures when you should be in healthy late middle age. But brittle bones will not be the end of it or the worst.
If you have been drinking fluoridated water over time and it worries you, and it should, then find out how to detoxify using iodine and iodide mix. You can purchase Lugols solution in most countries. Check first it isn't the government stipulated(?) half mix you get in NZ from a compounding chemist. That won't do the job unless you double the dose. You need to read up before attempting detox. A detox will take time, usually at least a couple of years.
Fluoride is bad for you, very bad. Insufficient iodine in the diet is bad. The fact many haven't got easy over the counter access to iodine supplementation in many Western countries simply to balance the inadequate diet most people have, let alone to counter the effects of fluoride, is bad and bad.

Buy a filter or drink bottled water. As for me, I'll keep on "killing myself" with flouride. People are living longer lives now. There is no need to dumb down people with flouride, when video games and reality television do that job.
Sorry, but the world isn't out to get you; you're just highly paranoid.
Might point out that video games have been shown to INCREASE intelligence, and that reality TV may be a symptom of the fluoride dumbing, not another way in which we are dumbed...
