I bought the filters and I had two plastic carboys from my beer making days. I added a faucet on the bottom one. A LOT cheaper. I'm ready for AHBL day (All H... Breaks Loose). I have several sets of filters and 25,000 gallons of water out back (swimming pool).

I think mines a Aquacera. Its plastic and uses Doulton filters. Its not the container that matters, its which filters. Filters with carbon filter out chemicals and metals and the others dont. i really like mine. It sure beat buying water.

I also have a sawyer point 1. I havent used it yet but will this summer canoeing. They have great reviews but will not filter chemicals or metals. Its a little cheaper, more portable and faster way to filter. Last forever if you dont freeze it or so Ive read.

The large Berkey filters are excellent and filter out EVERYTHING! They're not cheap at $100+ a piece but you get what you pay for. These filters are for serious large volume, long term usage.

Bought this one. So far I like it. I don't have issues with my water. But with all the gas drilling up this way I would rather be sure.
