You also need to be concerned with removing chloramine. Many/most municipalities have switched from using chlorine to treat the water to this chemical chloramine which is pretty awful. Reverse osmosis filters won't filter it. Google it.

I have a whole house filtration and softening system and a reverse-osmosis under the kitchen sink. Should we ever sell the house, it is all coming with us. Where I live, as long as it is disclosed that the systems are not part of the house and not remaining, we won't have to leave it. Real estate laws vary by locale, so it's something to look into. We paid around $7000.

I don't have one, but I did research and I believe it's several hundred dollars? (Depending on quality/company). I've heard this company is good:

The answer to your question, it depends on where your plumbing has been altered.

Do you know where your filter is? Inside or outside? Countertop or undersink? you still need to replace the reverse osmosis membrane as well.

This site says it removes 90% of fluoride:

http://www.reverseosmosiswaterfilterreviews.org/does-reverse-osmosis-remove-fluoride.html

"Yes, reverse osmosis does an excellent job of removing more than 90% of fluoride from your water. The special membranes help block dangerous toxins, minerals and other chemicals. While the water is small enough to get pushed through the membrane, most other material cannot."
