The Pelican Fluoride Series uses bone charcoal or bone char is reported to be an effective means for the reduction of fluoride. Bone charcoal contains a carbon structure while supporting a porous hydroxyapatite matrix (a calcium phosphate hydroxide in crystalline form which is rich in surface ions which can be readily replaced by fluoride ion). Adsorption and ion exchange are thought to be the mechanism for fluoride reduction by bone char.

Effects of Fluoride in your water back to top

Fluoride In Nature
Fluorine is a natural trace element and exists in almost all soils. In elemental form fluorine is a flammable, irritating, and toxic halogen gas that is one of the most powerful oxidizing agents known. It therefore occurs naturally only in the reduced (fluoride, Fl-) form in combination with other minerals. Fluoride is classified as any binary compound of fluorine with another element. Fluoride compounds make up approximately 0.08 percent of the earth's crust. Fluorspar, cryolite, and fluorapatite are the most common fluoride producing compounds known. Fluorspar contains the highest percentage of fluoride by weight, as calcium fluoride (CaF2), of the minerals mentioned.


Fluoride In Drinking Water
Perhaps the most widely known use of fluoride is its addition to public drinking water supplies at about one milligram per liter (mg/L) of a fluoride salt, measured as fluoride, for the purpose of reducing tooth decay. This is achieved at the municipal treatment plant by injecting or feeding a solution of hydrofluosilicic acid, sodium silicofluoride, or sodium fluoride into the treated water stream. It is the fluoride ion in mineral ionic form that occurs in water, bones, teeth, and public drinking water supplies. About 144 million people it was estimated in 1992 drink fluoridated water at levels ranging from 0.7 to 1.2 mg/L.


Effects of Fluoride
Some water systems with naturally occurring fluoride must treat their water supply to remove the excess fluoride to comply with the Safe Drinking Water Act limits. Children under nine years of age exposed to levels of fluoride greater than about two mg/L may develop a condition known as mottling or discoloration of the permanent teeth. In certain cases the teeth become chalky white in appearance. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has advised a secondary maximum contaminant level (SMCL) limit of two mg/L to protect against this aesthetic or cosmetic adversity from fluorides in drinking water. Further, federal regulations require that fluoride not exceed a concentration of four mg/L in drinking water. This is an enforceable maximum contaminant level (MCL) standard; it has been established to protect public health.

Exposure to drinking water levels above four mg/L for many years may result in cases of crippling skeletal fluorosis, which is a serious bone disorder resembling osteopetrosis and characterized by extreme density and hardness and abnormal fragility of the bones (sometimes called .marble bones..) When a community water system exceeds the MCL of four mg/L, it must notify each of its customers by issuing a public notice to those customers. This notice outlines the limitations and health effects from high fluoride levels in drinking water and points out home treatment systems and bottled water as possible drinking water source alternatives.



How does it work? back to top

Pelican Fluoride Series System - BoneChar Adsorption Filtration
The Pelican Fluoride Series Premium Whole House Water Filter utilizes the highest grade Brimac BoneChar carbon available on the market which was designed/developed to significantly reduce fluoride, and known to help reduce heavy metals that may be present in the water supply entering your home. View Glasgow University known uses for BoneChar carbon.

The Pelican Fluoride Series uses bone charcoal or bone char (carbonized animal bone) is reported to be an effective means for the reduction of fluoride. Bone charcoal contains a carbon structure while supporting a porous hydroxyapatite matrix (a calcium phosphate hydroxide in crystalline form which is rich in surface ions which can be readily replaced by fluoride ion). Adsorption and ion exchange are thought to be the mechanism for fluoride reduction by bone char.


Upflow versus Downflow
The Pelican Fluoride Series Whole House Water Filter Systems are specially designed as an Up-Flow System that does not require any special process or instructions for replacing the media. Other Down-Flow Systems on the market do not allow for the media replacement as an option because the homeowner would have to have special knowledge or tools to complete the task. Many water filtration experts agree that down-flow systems often have channeling issues in the media making them less effective in filtering out chemicals in the water because the water is unable to reach the unexpired media.

Channeling is the process where small tunnels form in the media allowing water to flow in the same channel every time. Water always takes the path of least resistance. The Pelican Systems force the water in an Up-Flow direction up from the bottom of the tank in a swirling motion causing the carbon media to swirl. This motion allows the water to have maximum contact with the carbon media resulting in a very effective filtration process without the possibility of channeling. This is found to be the most effective design in whole house water filtration systems.


Green Water Filtration Technology back to top

Replacement Media Vs. Replacement Tank
It is important to understand how the carbon media inside the Pelican Fluoride Series Systems works; Adsorption: the process by which matter (chemicals) adheres to the surface areas of a solid adsorbent material (carbon media). In layman's terms the chemicals in your water are adsorbed into the carbon media on contact. The carbon media does not release any chemicals back into your water once they are adsorbed. We offer the replacement media as a more cost effective and environmentally friendly approach. When it comes time to replace the media, you are not throwing away a tank, fittings, or having to try and dispose of a complete system. Not to mention the cost of hiring a plumber to remove the old tank and install the new one.

Some companies are trying to discourage this process and use tactics to scare the consumer into thinking that they must buy a completely new system when the media expires; this is unnecessary and not very cost effective. The media is the fuel for the system (it's like the gas in your car). If you had to replace your car every time you ran out of gas that would be crazy, the same goes for the filtration system. The tanks and fittings are designed for this specific application. The cost of the system does not only include the media inside the tank, it includes many factors: the tank, fittings, media, and labor to build, shipping, advertising, and overhead. The media inside the tank is only part of the cost of a complete system therefore you cannot rate the effectiveness of the media based on the low cost to replace it.


Water waste
The Pelican Fluoride Series Systems use an up-flow design and do not waste any water while filtering and softening/conditioning the water for your entire home. While other systems use a down-flow design requiring them to backwash once or twice a week wasting 100-300 gallons of water each time they backwash. The fact is that we cannot afford to waste one drop of water. Water is one the most important resources we have on earth.

 


Electricity
The Pelican Fluoride Series Systems eliminates the need for an electronic head for backwashing because of its up-flow design. No moving parts means less maintenance and no service calls for damaged moving parts that render the system unable to filter your water.

Great feeling and smelling water

I live in Asheville, NC which is supposed to have some of the best water in all of NC, however, the water coming into my home consistently had a strong chlorine smell and taste. However, once our whole home filter was installed we could tell a big difference. It even feels different to take a shower; feels more like fresh lake water than pool water. Hard to explain, but my wife and I are very pleased with the purchase.

Long over due

Where we live we've been fighting taste and odor problems for years. The City introduced new filter systems and even new city wells. Finally I said enough is enough. Stared investigating filter systems for my house and found most of them literally thousands of dollars. I finally ran across Pelican whole house filter system. Ordered it, installed it myself and wow. I can actually go to any faucet in my house and get a glass of drinkable water. Take a shower without stinking up the bathroom. Our washed cloths smell really fresh and opening up the dishwasher without the stench of chlorine and other odors is no longer a challenge. How simple and inexpensive a fix. No more bottled water. I should have done it years ago.

Good product

I am very pleased with the Pelican water filter. I love the fact that I can get good-tasting water anywhere in the house without any ugly faucet filter stuck on the end of the faucet. Everything went without a hitch except when I first turned the water on, I could only get a trickle of water our of the faucet. I read the troubleshooting part of the book and saw that a high flow of water during the first 72 hours could cause a blocked screen in the carbon container. This occurred because there was air in the lines and produced the instantaneous high flow. I turned the supply off for 10 minutes and I used the convenient by-pass valves mounted on the filter container for the process of turning on the supply until all the air was out of the lines. Then I turned the valves to direct water through the filter. Everything has worked well since then. I have contacted Pelican once or twice with questions during the installation process and received prompt and helpful replies. So far, I couldn't be happier with your product and service. Thank you.
