Water Filter Comparison - Benchtop Water Filter Vs. Benchtop Gravity Water Filter

Today, we will look at all the differences between a Mechanical Benchtop Water Filter and a Benchtop Gravity Filter.

Benchtop Gravity Water Filter

If you're a single person in a home, even a couple of people, a benchtop gravity filter will work well for you. They are great little systems because they’re very clean, neat and easy to use. You can upgrade to a quality cartridge that takes out the fluoride, heavy metals, and other contaminants.

When you fill the top tank in a gravity filter, the candle in the top will generally filter the water at about 1 litre per hour. You fill the top tank up before you go to bed, come out in the morning, and the bottom tank is filled with beautiful, freshly filtered water.

They create magnificent water too!

A Benchtop Gravity Filter is excellent just for drinking water and highly recommended.

Benchtop Mechanical Water Filter

The mechanical benchtop filter connects onto the spout of the kitchen sink tap.

Once you connect this under the kitchen tap spout, turn on the cold water, and the water will drop straight into the sink like it always does.

When you want to get water out of the filter, you simply lift the diverter lever, and the water stops flowing in the sink, and travels through the white pipe, through the filters and gets filtered, and we have quality drinking water flowing out of the faucet.

A Benchtop Mechanical Water Filter is more suitable for those who’ve got a family with children. You know the old story where mum’s the only one filling up the gravity filter, and it hasn't got the volume there to keep the quality water up for the whole family.

Another big benefit of the mechanical filter is that as soon as you turn the kitchen tap on, the filtered water is flowing, and it just keeps going. You can use it for washing fruit and veggies, whereas you wouldn’t do that with a gravity filter with limited volume.

Another factor for the mechanical filter is that you can get a whole range of cartridges for different purposes.

You can have one housing, two housings, three housings or four, and put whatever cartridges in it you like. When you turn on the water, it will just keep on pouring, and you’ll never run out of water.

Whereas with a Benchtop Gravity you’ve got the standard cartridge and they're filtering the water for you and taking the contamination out.

A benchtop gravity filter is a cheap way to have a good quality filter and we do like these systems.
