Removal of fluoride (defluoridation) and iron (deferration) of water are carried out simultaneously in the same electrolytic cell. Aluminium and graphite (or TSI) anodes and aluminium cathode area employed. The results indicate that it is possible to bring down the F- from 90 ppm or more to less than 0.8 ppm and Fe++ from 10 ppm to almost negligible quantity in about 2 to 3 hours and with an energy consumption of 3-6 KWh m-3 of water depending on the contents of F- and Fe++
