G'day folks, Rod from My Water Filter here.
Today we are comparing two different styles of Benchtop Gravity Filters and how to avoid overfilling a benchtop gravity filter.
- The Ceramic Benchtop Water Filter (Top Tank Inside the Bottom Tank)
- Plastic Benchtop Water Filter (Top Tank On Top Of Bottom Tank)
The Ceramic Benchtop Water Filter (Top Tank Inside the Bottom Tank)
The Ceramic Filter we have featured in the video below has the top tank inside of the bottom tank which means no matter how many times you fill it; it will never cause the bottom tank to overflow and spill out onto your benchtop. When you load the top tank, the water flows through the candle and into the bottom tank. When the bottom tank is full, the top tank will also remain full.
Plastic Benchtop Water Filter (Top Tank On Top Of Bottom Tank)
In cases where your benchtop water filter has the top tank on top of the bottom tank, you will notice that you can continuously fill the top tank and it will always filter through, even if it means spilling out onto your benchtop.
These systems have a little overflow hole, and the water will start to slowly trickle out onto the benchtop if the bottom tank is completely full.
They are still a great system, but you just need to be aware of how much water you put in the top in relation to the holding capacity in the bottom.
Just make sure there's enough room in the bottom tank to contain and hold that water once it filters down from the top tank.
Which is the Best Gravity Water Filter?
If you are looking for a Benchtop Gravity Filter that doesn't overflow, we highly recommend the Ceramic Benchtop Filteroo Water Filter which has the filler tank inside the bottom tank.
