The main difference between a countertop water filtration system and a faucet-mount filter is strictly related to the installation process. While faucet-mount filteres are added to the sink faucets, countertop filters are only connected to the faucet via a small valve. We suggest opting for a countertop water filter that has the ability to filter fluoride, chlorine and other chemicals that are found in drinking water. The best solution is the Home Master Jr. F2, that filters all the chemicals mentioned earlier while ensuring that the minerals that are beneficial for your health are not entirely filtered. Try to replace the filters every 500 gallons(this is the equivalent of almost 3 months). Compared to faucet-mount filters, countertop water filters can improve both the taste and smell of drinking water.

Faucet-mount filters are the best solution for cleaning water when you are living on a low budget. This inexpensive water filter is mounted directly on the kitchen faucet, providing filtered water whenever you choose to. You can quickly switch from unfiltered to filtered water in just seconds. One of the most popular faucet-mount filter is the Culligan Faucet Filter FM-15A. This small filter is efficient at removing pollutants, bacteria and chemicals from water. According to customer reports, this filter is very easy to set up. If you can’t find the right adapter at first, try looking for one at your local hardware store. The Culligan faucet filter comes with a minor drawback. Some users complain that the filter has a slow flow, but if you come to think of it, most faucet-mount filters have a very slow water flow. This can also be the result of clogged filters, so be sure to change them periodically.
