Hey, spending some tax returns this year on a counter top gravity fed ceramic "miracle" filter of some sort. I always assumed Berkey was THE brand to get, but have heard quality, reliability, and consistency not what it used to be. I'm leaning now towards an Alexapure Pro. It's a little more affordable and on paper does everything I need it to. Can I get some experience from any of you on these matters and/or brands. Others to look into? Also I know some of you make your own water filtration systems with buckets and sand and what not and I think they're really great but that's not an option or what I'm interested in talking about here... Cheers and thanks in advance.
