    Home Water Filtration Systems Compared

    Home water filtration is the best way to ensure your family is drinking safer, cleaner water that’s free from contaminants. An effective water filter system will remove the majority of chemicals and particles, including:

    • Disinfectant by-products (DBPs) from water chlorination
    • Fecal matter and other organic contaminants
    • Hazardous fertilizer and pesticide runoff
    • Waterborne bacteria, including legionella, giardia and norovirus

    Installing a filter at home is easy and convenient. A countertop or under counter system with a faucet filter can be set up in minutes, and a whole house water filtration system can be installed in a couple of hours. Pelican Water filter systems require little maintenance — you only need to occasionally replace the water filters and flush the system.

    No two homes have the same water quality profile. With the wide selection of water filtration systems available, conducting a water filter comparison is one of the best ways to narrow down your options. It’s good to consider your budget, lifestyle, and local water issues when determining which water filter is best for you.
