The Aquaversa Countertop features a stainless steel housing, the same as the Below Sink model. This unit sits on your counter next to the sink with an included acrylic base. It connects to your existing faucet using a hose diverter valve that allows you to easily switch from filtered to unfiltered water.
The countertop Aquaversa is generally intended for use where below-sink installation restrictions are present, e.g. rental housing such as home or apartment, college dorm, or lack of below-sink space, although it can be converted for below sink use with additional parts.
