The under-bench option is a kitchen-only water filtering option which means you only get one tap giving you filtered water. Secondly, the filters usually do not filter out as much as the more comprehensive Kiwipure Virtual Ionizer System.
Something also to consider is that under-bench filters can actually be more expensive than our whole-house filters to replace each year depending on the type and supplier. The whole house unit's main benefits include:
1. Your kitchen, shower, outside taps, laundry and basin faucets all have pure water flowing from them.
2. If you add up the components one-for-one including the KiwiPure Virtual Ionizer the cost is comparable;
3. You don't need to change filters as much as under bench.
The Kiwipure system is complete out of the box without the need to run any other systems (except UV options if required). The system not only purifies but also conditions your water which is unique to the Kiwipure Virtual Ionizer System.
As you might have seen HRV are pushing healthy homes which includes water. Their system which licensed from Kiwipure is effectively the same system.
