Top 5 Benefits of Drinking Filtered Water


Filtering water before consumption has significant benefits, from protecting your health to making tap water taste much better At Pelican Water, we offer a range of water filtration systems to meet your needs, including economical and compact countertop filters, reverse osmosis and whole house filtration systems. Read on to find the five most important benefits of filtering water.

Bye-Bye ChemicalsBenefits of filtered water

Water treatment facilities use a mix of chemicals to kill microorganisms, including chlorine and chloramine. While these are effective disinfectants for large-scale water treatment, they should be filtered out of your drinking water. In addition, there are a number of other contaminants and chemicals showing up in water supplies at an increasing and alarming rate.

A carbon filter, like the one in a Pelican whole house filtration system, removes chemicals before they enter your home plumbing, preventing exposure to substances that could harm you and your family.

No Microorganism Threats

While the U.S. public water system is one of the nation’s great achievements, our water delivery infrastructure is aging. As pipes corrode, leak, and break, the risk of harmful microorganisms entering the water supply increases. There have been a number of waterborne E.coli bacteria outbreaks across the nation in recent months.

To protect yourself and your family from unwelcome pathogens, use a filtration system with an ultraviolet purification feature. UV rays destroy a microorganism’s ability to reproduce, keeping you and your family safe.

Avoid Boil Water Advisories

When microorganisms are found in public water, you may find yourself under a bothersome boil water advisory. Not only does boiling water take time, the resulting water has a flat, unpleasant taste once it cools. A whole house filtration system with UV protection will destroy 99.9 percent of viruses and bacteria to protect your home’s water against contamination.

Taste & Smell

One of the great disadvantages of public water in many parts of the country is unpleasant taste, possibly in combination with disconcerting odors and color. Pelican’s filtration systems, from our whole house systems to our countertop filters, ensure that every glass of water is as pure, clear, and tasty as the last.

Saving Money with Filtration Systems

Finally, there’s the question of cash. A whole house filtration system is an investment, and one that pays dividends. A quick look at the price of bottled water in the store indicates how expensive the alternative can be.

The greatest savings come with a whole house filter/water softener combination system. Hard water, coupled with foreign particles in public water supplies, damages plumbing and reduces the lifespan of water-based appliances such as dishwashers and water heaters. By adding a water softening system to your home’s filtration system, you can avoid costly repairs and premature appliance replacements.

From keeping your family safe to keeping your wallet comfortable, there are many important benefits to filtered water. Contact us at 877-842-1635, and one of our team members will be happy to help you choose the right products for your home.
