    Home Water Purification Solutions

    There’s nothing quite as refreshing as a crisp, cool glass of water on a hot day. When you need to parch your thirst, you shouldn’t have to worry about the quality of the water you’re drinking. Although water treatment facilities have strict codes that must be met when filtering public water, there still can be plenty of nasty contaminants that slip through the cracks into your home’s water supply.

    Even properly disinfected public water supplies can contain:

    • Naturally occurring chemicals and minerals dangerous to health: Radon, arsenic, uranium and others.
    • Disinfectant byproducts: While chlorine eliminates many contaminants, its use during water treatment can introduce harmful byproducts into the water.
    • Fecal matter, which can be accidentally introduced into the system by a bad water line.
    • Hazardous fertilizer and pesticide run off.

    All of these contaminants can be harmful to your family’s health. Also, drinking and bathing in chlorinated water can dry out and damage hair and skin, not to mention the potential long-term health consequences. According to the EPA, studies have found an association between long-term exposure to chlorine byproducts and certain forms of cancer.

    How to Purify Water at Home – Pelican Water Solutions

    For purer, cleaner water, Pelican Water offers a number of highly effective filtration options that are easy on the pocketbook. For filtering water in the kitchen, we highly recommend our new Pelican Premium Drinking Water System. This is the perfect solution for people who cannot install a whole house water filtration system, such as those on a tight budget or who live in an apartment building. This technologically advanced countertop drinking water purification system filters more than 60 contaminants from your water, attaching directly to the faucet. Some of the contaminants it removes include:

    • Lead
    • Chlorine
    • Chloramine
    • VOC’s
    • Microbial cysts
    • Mercury
    • Giardia

    Our countertop filtration system provides you with safer, purer drinking water at a great low price. Also, the Undercounter Drinking Filter System provides the same high-quality water filtration, but out of sight in the cabinet. Our customers find that the water in either system makes  everything in the kitchen taste better…from a morning cup of coffee or tea, to a dinnertime bowl of rice or pasta. It will reduce your need to buy bottled water, so you’ll be doing your part to help the environment as well.

    For those who want to enjoy purer, cleaner water throughout the home, we recommend the Pelican Carbon Series Premium Whole House Water Filter. Our system requires no electricity and wastes no water, while removing contaminants, silt, sand, and debris—down to a tiny five micros in size. This system uses Granular Activated Carbon Medias (GAC) with high-grade coconut shell-based activated carbons to filter out the chlorine and any contaminants in the water.

    Also, for tap water that has especially high levels of chemicals and/or contaminants, consider the Pelican Pro 6-Stage Reverse Osmosis System. Our undercounter RO system produces the highest quality drinking water, with a thorough six-stage filtering process that removes 99.99% of cysts and 97.8% of arsenic, as well as 96.5% of TDS (total dissolved solids).

    And for those who want the extra protection of ultraviolet water disinfection, we recommend the Pelican Whole House Water Filter with UV. This system uses ultraviolet light to destroy any unwanted bacteria in the water, ensuring that your water supply is cleaner and safer. UV protection is particularly useful in areas that commonly issue boil water alerts, which occur when public water lines are compromised and contaminated with bacteria.
