The topic of drinking clean healthy water has been a concern of mine for numerous years. Even though, I never really did much about it until recently. Having found myself in a worsening financial situation combined with the articles I have read about the dangerous chemicals added to public’s drinking water supply I decided to begin searching for a way to save money and my health at the same time. The link to the video I created is at the end of this article
The answer was to go back to collecting rain water as I had unsuccessfully done about 5 years ago. This time was different it wasn’t just an experiment it was a commitment. I decided to find the best long lasting filter that I could afford before I fully run out of money since I was recently let go from my job. It needed to be a system that wold give me the best bank for my buck by filtering as many things as possible. When my research was concluded I had settled on the AlexaPure Pro for few primary reasons.
First, it was stainless steel. This was important because when it comes to food, water or anything which I will put into my body I only use stainless steel, glass, or ceramic. I hate to use plastic or anything that is made from chemicals, chemicals which could blend with my food or water and I end up consuming the chemical without noticing. Second, the AlexaPure Pro is off the grid meaning it doesn’t use any electricity. I like this a great deal because I like the freedom of being able to get up an go with anything and not even having to think about wether an item will work or not. I am not a fan of batteries and even less electricity that is generated in a power plant. Those power plants damage the people and the environment around them. That is why I am a big proponent of solar, water and wind energy. Third, it is easy to assemble and disassemble by hand within seconds for easy portability and maintenance. Fourth, it is rated for filtering 5,000 gallons of water, which is outstanding! 5,000 gallons at one gallon a day is 5,000 days, which comes out to just over 13 years of clean water. Fifth, the system is expandable, meaning you can use up to four filters at once. The top part comes with four holes one for each filter. When you buy the system it comes standard with one filter, but I went ahead and bought three more. By having four filters I extend the life of the filter because now the work of filtering the water is being distributed between four filters, so more water is filtered faster. Sixth, the companies website has a report of about five pages long, which shows the many, many, many things that this system filters along with the percentage that was filtered out. The report also includes the name and address of the Lab in New Jersey which did the testing and the name of the Lab Director.
When I first received the system, I cleaned it and flushed it by letting water run through it twice. Then I collected about 20 gallons of water from the rain caused by the recent Hurricane Mathew. Collecting rain water every time it rains will save me a ton of money every year simply because I won’t need to use as much tap water or bottle water. I also hate bottle water because we never know what those water bottling companies put in the water.
I highly advise everyone to get the best water filter you can afford and start drinking safe clean water like nature intended it to be.
