Home Water Filtration Systems Compared


Home water filtration is the best way to ensure that your family is drinking delicious, cleaner water, free from harmful contaminants and chemicals. A good water filtration product will remove the majority of contaminants, such as:

  • Disinfectant byproducts: While water chlorination can eliminate many contaminants, its use can introduce harmful chloramines into the water
  • Fecal matter, which can be accidentally introduced into the system by a bad water line
  • Hazardous fertilizer and pesticide run off
  • Waterborne bacteria, including legionella, giardia and norvovirus

If you decide to filter your water, you will remove most of these contaminants without removing naturally occurring minerals that are important for good health. You’ll also have direct control of your water quality. Purchasing bottled water is a risky proposition: One never knows for certain what is in the water—some studies have shown that up to 40% of bottled water is just refined tap water!

Setting up a filter at home is easy and convenient. A countertop or under counter filter with faucet filter can be set up in minutes, and a whole house water filtration system can be installed in an hour or two. Once the water filter is in place, there is no need to buy bottled water or stress about water delivery services. All you have to do is change the water filter as needed, which can be made even simpler with our Water Shield Auto-Ship Program. No more worrying about when to replace a filter again.

And of course, filtering water at home is extremely cost effective, costing just pennies per gallon. (1 cent per 100 gallons using Pelican Whole House Water Filter)

Depending upon your budget and needs, Pelican Water offers a number of outstanding water filter options. Which is the best fit for your home?

Water Filter Options

For the Tap

The newest addition to the Pelican Water filtration family is the Pelican Premium Drinking Water System. This filter fits conveniently on the counter or under the sink, and is perfect for an apartment or condominium kitchen. With a two-stage filtration system that removes more than 60 contaminants—including most chlorine and chloramines—it not only provides your family with better-tasting, purer water, you’ll also enjoy cleaner fruits and vegetables washed under filtered water.

This effective and affordable carbon water filter is a great addition to the Pelican line and will make a great addition to any kitchen!

Another great water filter option is our Pro- 6-Stage Reverse Osmosis System. It has an updated membrane technology that filters 99.9% of harmful contaminants to provide the highest quality filtered water.

Our RO system connects to the kitchen tap and has a four-stage prefilter, membrane, and postfilter in a single cartridge. The fifth and sixth stage filters are between tank and faucet. Wih the 6-stage RO, minerals are added back into the drinking water to create a balanced, pH neutral drinking water.

Because an RO system has longer water contact than a carbon-based water filter, it is able to remove more contaminants, including copper and sodium. The price is higher, but the water filtration quality cannot be beaten.

Whole House Water Filters

For those who want to enjoy the many benefits of filtered water throughout the home, we recommend the Pelican Carbon Series Whole House Water Filter. This affordable, low-maintenance, no-electricity system provides cleaner, purer water for the shower, appliances, and every tap in the home.

Our affordable, whole house water filtration system has a 600,000 gallon capacity, which effectively serves a home with 1-3 bathrooms. The large-diameter tanks hold more water filtration carbon media than our competitors, which increases overall filtration performance. And the cost of the replacement filters is a fraction of what our competitors charge.

Whatever your budget, Pelican Water has a home water filtration system to give you cleaner, healthier, and tastier water today!
