Wall mounted or under the counter – how to decide your water purifier

RO Water Purifiers are not just the purifiers anymore. They have become a necessity today and not a luxury anymore. They exude a sense of style and add to the kitchen interiors.  As the demand, so is the supply of these stylish water purifiers. Traditionally, wall mounted water purifiers were more preferred in Indian kitchens than any other type of purifier. But, as the modular kitchens have numerous cabinets, the demand for under the counter has become popular and is still on the rise.

After analyzing the below points, it can be easily decided which type of water purifier you should opt for installing in your kitchen. Let’s get started.

  • Whether the kitchen is simple or modular one

If the kitchen is simple and not modular in looks, wall-mounted RO Water Purifier is the best option to go for. The wall mounted purifier can be used as the over the top counter water purifier also, if situation demands. For modular kitchens, under the counter is better as it gets hidden and the outlet pipe directly flushes out in drain. Also, it helps in saving a lot of space. The biggest advantage in both the water purifiers is that, they have their own capacity and can be used without electricity as well.

  • Convenient to use

A wall mounted water purifier provides the advantage of filling water with ease, as the water automatically flows down, whereas there is a pressure pump in case of under-the-counter water purifier and the water needs to be pressurized to flow upwards. But when it comes to filling of bottles, one can just place the bottle under the faucet over the sink and hence there is no need of holding the bottle till it gets filled.

  • Size and designs

As Wall mounted water purifier need to be light, there are limited number of size and design whereas in the case of under the counter RO water purifier, more styles, size and design options are available.

  • Draining of the water

Nobody likes kitchen to be wet and messy. In the case of under the counter water purifier, the faucet is attached with the kitchen sink tap and the excess water is drained out from the sink itself. When it comes to wall mounted water purifier, chances are there that water will get spilled and will make the kitchen look messy.

  • Servicing

As under the counter water purifiers are placed at the ground level, they can be easily serviced and maintained. Wall mounted purifier, however, need more maintenance than under the counter. More maintenance is required because every time it needs to be serviced, it needs to be detached from the installed area.

So, in terms of the need, maintenance and modernization of the kitchen, under the counter water purifier outscores wall mounted water purifier. But in the end, it is the customer who has to decide.
