One Year With My Pelican Water System


Professional cyclist John Arias has been the proud owner of a Pelican Water Filtration System for one year. Here’s what this pro athlete had to say about making the leap and filtering all of the water in his home with the help of Pelican Water.

Cycling has been a part of my life for almost 35 years. I have had my fair share of ups and downs during this time — every professional athlete will look at a good performance and only think about how it could be better. How do I train harder? How do I overcome a performance plateau? How do I gain that edge that fuels my success and keeps me healthier in my day-to-day life?

 

I always knew how important hydration was before, during and after training and racing, but I never really thought about what was in my water. After all, it’s just water, right? I didn’t think it could be that serious.

 

When I learned about the Pelican Water Filtration System I was shocked to find out how many chemicals and contaminants can be found in plain tap water, even after it’s treated. In America a lot of us assume that our water is clean and pure, but what was lurking inside my tap really surprised me.

 

I’m not a chemist, but I know this much: chlorine, mercury, lead, herbicides, pharmaceuticals and other common contaminants are horrible for your body. So, if you assume you’re doing something great for your health by drinking your 64 ounces of tap water a day, think twice. What type of water are you actually consuming? Drinking, cooking, showering, cleaning — water is all around you during the most important activities you carry out each day.

 

Thanks to Pelican Water Filtration System, I no longer drink, shower or cook with harmful chemicals that can cause serious health problems. That’s one less thing to worry about, both for my overall health and my ability to rehydrate effectively when I compete or train. We installed our Whole House Filtration System about a year ago, and it’s been a rewarding journey to say the least.

 

Just knowing that I’m using water filtered with the latest technology every day in my home brings me a wonderful peace of mind that allows me to focus on the next challenge. It’s one of the best things I’ve done for me, my family, and our pooch.

 

I don’t know about you, but I like to look fit in general. Who doesn’t like to feel good about their body? Take my word for it — showering with filtered water free of skin irritants like chlorine helps me look young and healthy.

 

When you shower with regular tap water, the unnecessary and harmful chemicals wash away the natural oils from your hair and skin. So, instead of just getting clean, you’re also getting rid of your healthy oils that are there to protect you. If looking vibrant and healthy is important to you, I advise you to take your self-care to the next level and invest in a Pelican Water Filtration System. I couldn’t be happier with the way my Pelican Water system has helped me achieve greater health. With a filtration system in your home you can see for yourself how purer, cleaner water can transform your life.
