Same here, But make sure you use food grade activated carbon because the stuff used in fish tanks and ponds isn't recommended for humans. I buy it from home brew suppliers and the alcotec pure carbon (pure Karbon) is also superb for making nasty cheap Vodka taste like premium Vodka once filtered.

How easy are the filters to take apart and refil? How much do you put in one filter?

Easy, on the top of the Brita filter is a round piece of plastic covering a hole that has four tabs on it, just cut it out with a sharp knife and empty all the old carbon away then fill it up to the top with the new carbon.
There's no need to replace or cover the hole with anything because you'll never need to tip the filter upside down unless you're emptying it again.
I would imagine most filters are easily dismantled in a similar way.
There's a few videos on youtube where they cut the entire top off but I find it's not necessary.

Where do you buy these carbon/charcoal? Any recommendations?
