Professional Cyclist John Arias Joins The Pelican Team


By John Arias

As a professional cyclist for over ten years, I’m always searching for new ways to improve my cycling performance as well as my personal health. Sometimes, there is only so much you can do to control what you put in and perhaps on your body. This time, I was looking beyond my apparel and gear to add something new to improve my health and overall performance as an athlete. In my never-ending search for new things, I came across Pelican Water Systems. As much as I can control what I choose to fuel my body with, I never really put too much thought into the water I drink.

It was only after hours of research that I realized how little I know about the water that runs through my house, cook with, make tea with, and last but not least, shower with. Everything you can think of, you use water for.

When doing research for something that I know has the potential to be used for years and can have a major impact on my life, it usually takes me at least two weeks to come to a decision. This amount of time is necessary to gather information, compare different products, as well as sort through the countless number of reviews. With Pelican Water Systems, only a few days into my research, I confidently decided on the Whole House Filter and Salt Free Softener system and to pursue a partnership with them. Just a few days later, the product arrived at my doorstep in mint packaging.

To be honest, I was a little intimidated at first at the thought of installing it by myself, however, I decided to give it a shot. I contacted their customer service team about how to install the system, and they assured me it was a simple step-by-step process. After all is said and done, I will say it was surprisingly an easy install even with very little plumbing experience.

It has now been three weeks since I’ve started using filtered water and I must say, I am thoroughly impressed. It feels like my overall health has improved and I can’t tell you how much better my body feels. When I come home after hours of mountain biking, and training for my racing season, I look forward to taking a hot shower or soaking in the tub. I don’t have to think about all the chemicals that are in the water or what its doing to my appliances. That thought alone gives me peace of mind, and I know my body thanks me for it.

Now, my family and I can enjoy clean, safe water, for eating, cooking, and giving to our dog. We don’t have to rely on buying water from the grocery store, especially since the water we have in our house actually now tastes better than bottled water!

I highly recommend Pelican Water Systems. If you’re ready to bring your physical performance, and overall health to a higher level, don’t hesitate to invest in this product. It will benefit you and your entire family.
