Once the faucet filter is installed and ready, just turn on your faucet to enjoy your clean drinking water.

A single-stage countertop water filter is suitable for people who need basic water filter but don’t wish to change their filter that often.

The countertop water filter usually come in higher capacity, allowing longer usage before the filter needs to be replaced.

Single-stage Under Sink Water Filter

Usually, for a single-stage filter, the under sink set-up is more preferred by most people as the countertop space is more precious.

By installing and hiding the water filter, piping, and valve at the under sink area, it makes the kitchen look better aesthetically.

Multi-stages Countertop Water Purification System

If you need a more advanced water filtration for your home, you’ll have to go for the multi-stages water purification system which consists of 2 or more water filters linked together.

There’s no single filter that can effectively remove all type of contaminants in water, so you have to use multiple filters with each of them deal with specific contaminants to achieve greater filtration capability.

But more filters also mean bulkier, so if your countertop doesn’t have much space, just go for the under sink set-up.

Gravity Drip Water Filter

Gravity drip water filter is a multi-layer water filtration system that is mainly used for outdoor and traveling purposes.

It’s also suitable for people with no kitchen access and renting a room due to its portability, all you need to do is pour the unfiltered water into the container area, wait for a moment, and get your clean drinking water from the collection area.
