The numbers tell you how much the contaminants were reduced by the filters during the test. The main area where it’s not as good is in the reduction of radioactive substances. It’s also the only one that has been tested for microplastics. Alexapure comes with a single carbon block filter encased in a hybrid ceramic shell. Another thing that bothers me is that there is essentially no warranty on this product.It reduces the widest variety of contaminants and could be used as a survival filter.
This is a nice feature that makes it easier to lift it up for cleaning and replacing the filters. It’s different from all the other brands we’ve looked at in a couple of ways. It’s also supposed to improve your metabolism, memory, and blood pressure, among other things. I wouldn’t use it with well water, either, unless the well has been tested and you’re sure it doesn’t have any biological contaminants.
You can see that it’s almost the same as the other brands, but a bit less effective in removing aluminum.They only guarantee that the system will arrive free of damage and defects, or you can return it within 30 days. It is going to make your water taste better, and it will remove some contaminants. So if you want to spend the least amount of money possible on a decent filter, this might be the one for you. There’s no plumbing involved and you don’t need electricity to use them. But, if fluoride isn’t an issue for you, then you might want to consider it. What kind of maintenance do you have to do on gravity filters?
You won’t find every single contaminant listed because there are just too many. One problem you run into doing this comparison is that identical tests were not run on each of the systems. For example, if it says “glyphosate 75%”, that means 75% of the glyphosate was removed, and 25% remained after filtration. The main part is stainless steel, and it has a plastic spigot.
You can add more filters for a faster flow, if you like.
It does a great job removing most contaminants, including fluoride and radioactive substances. It reduces both chlorine and chloramine, lead, and fluoride, along with many other toxic chemicals. Silver is incorporated in the filters for self-sterilization. There are 5 stages that the water goes through in this system. This may boost your immunity and improve your overall health. This could very well be true, but they have not published any lab test results that would back up their claims. The results are included in the contaminant reduction table above. The lack of a warranty and especially the lack of lab test reports to back up the company’s claims are why it’s the lowest rated of the bunch.
You just put unfiltered water in the top, and gravity pulls the water downward through the filter element(s) and into the holding chamber. What kind of maintenance do you have to do on gravity filters?
You’ll need to take the filter elements out every now and then and give them a good scrubbing with plain water. All of these filters are going to make your water taste good.
