Pelican Water Education Resources Demystify Water Treatment


We know more than anyone that the technicalities of water treatment and filtration can be confusing. As a concerned homeowner who’s ready to take your water quality into your own hands you may find the scientific jargon and descriptions of the processes that take place within various water treatment products confusing or complicating.

At Pelican Water we constantly strive to connect our customers with the right water treatment options for their state, for their neighborhood, and for their house. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to water treatment. Homeowners with well water concerned about giardia will look for a different system than a family with city water looking to reduce water hardness.

In order to make your water filtration buying decisions simpler than ever we have released extensive education resources right here on our website that explore the major types of water filtration options and products in-depth. Now you won’t have to conduct a comprehensive online search to become confident in your decision – you can access all of the valuable information in one place. Check out the details about these informational resources below:

Reverse Osmosis

One of the most preferred and effective methods of water treatment on the market today is reverse osmosis. However, the actual process of reverse osmosis remains a mystery to many. Reverse osmosis removes a great number of impurities from your drinking water, but the contaminants that are filtered are determined by the size of the impurity, not its makeup or type. Once you learn about reverse osmosis, you’ll understand why its one of the main types of water filters trusted by commercial businesses and private homeowners alike.

Shower Filters

You’re probably aware of the potential hazards of drinking unfiltered water, but did you realize that showering in unfiltered water could also cause problems? In our shower filter education page you can learn about shower filters and read up on the benefits of removing chlorine, chloramine, and THMs from your water for healthier skin and hair.

UV (Ultraviolet Light)

Many Pelican Water filter systems utilize UV treatment to render pathogens and other organisms harmless by altering their DNA. That may sound complicated, but after you learn about UV, you’ll be equipped with the knowledge necessary to make an educated choice for your water treatment needs.

Water Testing

Of course, one of the first steps when you decide to improve your drinking water quality is to verify what contaminants are present in your water. Fluoride, pesticides, nitrates, heavy metals, and animal waste are all compounds that have been found in water across the country. Our water testing education section helps users learn about water testing including frequency, types of tests, and how it works.

Well Water

15 million households nationwide rely solely on well water, and if you fall in that group you must be proactive in testing and treating your water. Luckily, you can learn about well water on our education page, which contains a crash course on well water testing, treatment options, and softening.

Water Softeners

One of our most popular products is our water softener system. Hard water is a problem many Americans face daily, though they may not even be aware. If you experience scale buildup in your home that adversely affects or damages your appliances it’s time to get serious about buying a water softener. Learn about water softeners and why they’re so popular on our new education page.

Our new educational pages are designed to help your family pick the right water treatment system for your home. We hope you find them useful and informative. Give us a call today and let us know how we can help!
