Complete Beginner’s Guide to Under-Sink Kitchen Water Filters
When it comes to water purifiers for homes, most people go for wall-mounted water purifiers and table-top gravity filtration systems. However, little do they know that there is another type of water filtration system that is budget-friendly and serves the purpose of providing clean drinking water well. It’s called an under-the-counter water filtration system, or better unknown as a kitchen-sink water filter. And because of its cost-effectiveness, it’s now sneaking its way in homes quite rapidly. Let’s see what it is and why should you get it for your home:
What is an under-the-counter water filtration system?
It is a point-of-use water purification system that eliminates a range of contaminants from the water that comes through your kitchen faucet. It is installed under the kitchen sink, which keeps it out of sight, unlike other filters that occupy space and are visible.
How do under-sink kitchen water filters work?
Understanding the working of an under-sink kitchen water filter is easy. It collects water from a flexible water pipe, which is connected to the cold-water pipeline under the kitchen sink. It uses constant pressure to push water out of the filter as soon as you open its dedicated faucet installed on top of the sink.
Benefits of an under-the-counter water filtration system
Convenient and efficient: these systems provide continuous, instant access to clean drinking water from a single source. Plus, you no longer need to refill water, which is the case with table-top filters.
Target filtration: unlike a whole-house filter, which also filters water for your bathroom, toilet, and laundry, an under-sink kitchen water filter removes contaminants from water at a specific point in the home, most commonly the kitchen.
Save space: an under-sink kitchen water filter is an excellent way to access safe drinking water without having to place a filter on your kitchen countertop or install one on the wall. Since it needs to be installed under the sink, it saves counter space and makes the kitchen less cluttered.
