What are the advantages of a counter top water filter?

Are you looking for a water purifier, but are unsure whether to go for the counter top water filter, or an under sink system? Biopure Water for Life has got you covered; in this blog, we have a look at the advantages and disadvantages of counter top water purifiers. This will hopefully assist you to make your decision. 

A countertop water filter also known as a benchtop filter is easy to install with no plumbing required, they are cost effective, and are portable.  They can also be as effective as under sink water filter systems in removing contaminants.  Biopure Water for Life stock a variety of counter top water filters from single to twin systems.


Here are some of the advantages of counter top water filters:


Easy installation

Counter top water filters are great easy to install water filtration systems. Most require absolutely no plumbing and can be installed without a plumber in just 5 minutes.


Price advantage

Counter top water filters are also easy on the hip pocket and cost much less than the average under sink water filter.



Counter top water filters are great for travellers, renters and those who don’t want such a permanent system. Basically, just unplug the water filter and move on to your next destination with your fresh water purifier.


As effective as under sink systems

Most counter top water filters successfully remove chlorine, heavy metals, bacteria, cysts, giardia, viruses, sediment, dirt, odours, pesticides and so much more.


Let’s play devil’s advocate; here are some of the disadvantages of counter top water filters:



As the name suggests, counter top filter systems sit on your counter near the sink. These can be considered a bit of an eyesore by some. If you do not like the look of the filter on your bench top, the alternative is to install an under sink system that will never be seen.



Due to the compact and portable nature of most counter top water filter systems, they often do not have the filtering capacity of their larger, under sink counterparts. They also may lack in their contaminant removal capacity.
