I think you can’t beat countertop water filters for balncing real, effective filtering power with convenience and price. This kind of filter can purify pretty much anything, no matter how dirty the water. If you get a high quality one, it’ll be incredibly low-maintenance (our Berkey filter, which I will always recommend, is basically zero-effort! I haven’t had to do a thing to keep it running. Not one thing!) It’ll probably come as no surprise that I think the Berkey is the best countertop water filter on the market, but read on if you want to see how the others shape up. There’s a lot of good options, and my family has tried most of them over the years!
The Alexapure Pro is a lot like the Berkey, it’s stainless steel, filters pretty much everything including flouride, and stands up to any abuse. It’s a tossup between this model and the Berkey, but I tend to prefer the Berkey. The Alexapure is slightly cheaper usually, so that’s one thing in favor of it. At the end of the day, these two are the top of the line – affordable, effective, and convenient. There really isn’t much more to say than that!
