Water is not always as pure as it appears. Multiple contaminants can travel into your home and your body in a glass of supposedly clean tap water. Chlorine, chloramine, and other water purification byproducts are common contaminants.

Pelican Water's Premium Whole House Water Filter helps remove such threats. Our deluxe, high-capacity filtration system is virtually maintenance-free, and easily installed in any home. With the ability to filter 600,000 to 1,000,000 gallons over water over five years, the Premium water filtration system offers a great value for a whole house water filtering system.

Pelican Waters Premium Whole House Water Filter is a deluxe, high-capacity, virtually maintenance-free system that is easily installed in any home. It has a 600,000-1,000,000-gallon, 5-year capacity, which offers a great value for a whole house water filtering system.

Reasons to Choose Pelican Water
Why choose the Premium Whole House Water Filter over other home water filtration systems? Quality, convenience, and cost. The system's large diameter tank holds a high level of carbon media, increasing the filter's performance and lifespan, while the replacement cost is a fraction of the cost of our competitors.

Ease of maintenance is built right into our home water filtration system. While water filtration systems require the replacement of the entire tank when the time comes to replace the system's filter, all you need to do with a Pelican Water filtration system is replace the media, with no need to call (and pay for) a plumber.

Damaging effects of chlorine in your water back to top

Are you drinking chlorinated water?
Chlorine is a disinfectant used to kill bacteria, viruses, and protozoans often found in the sources of drinking water. While highly effective as a disinfectant, chlorine is technically a poison. Tap water may also contain chloramine, a chemical related to both chlorine and ammonia. The carbon media in a home water filtration system removes both chlorine and chloramine from your water supply.

Chlorinated water vs. filtered water
The main function of carbon filters is to remove the bad taste and smell from the drinking water. Carbon filters do not require a lot of maintenance, and with proper sediment filter changes and media changes, can provide the best tasting water. With improved taste, the filters also remove odor providing you with fresh tasting drinking water. They provide an excellent value for your money and definitely a better choice then bottled water.

Chlorine gives water a foul taste that is transmitted to coffee, tea, and any food prepared using water. Once you compare the taste of a hot drink made with filtered water to unfiltered, you realize just how much chlorinated water affects your enjoyment of food and drink. The difference is so striking high-end restaurants, chefs, and coffee houses use filtered water to provide the best possible taste for their products.

Cooking with chlorinated water
If you've ever cooked pasta in filtered water or made coffee or tea using filtered water you can definitely tell the difference. Chlorine is a chemical that is adsorbed into your foods and make your sauces and hot drinks taste foul. All of the top restaurants, chefs and even coffee houses use filtered water now so they can produce a quality product every time.

Showering with chlorinated water
Swimming in chlorinated pools can leave your hair limp and your skin dry and itchy thanks to the high amount of chlorine used to disinfect the water. Over time, chlorine in shower water produces the same effect.

Chlorine strips hair of the natural oils it needs for shine and body, leaving hair lifeless and brittle. You may find yourself using more conditioner to combat the effects of chlorine or notice that color treatments fade faster (chlorine is, after all, a type of bleach).

Chlorine damages your skin as well. A shower.s heat and steam encourages skin pores to open up. Chlorine then enters the skin through the pores, resulting in itch, dry skin or even allergic rashes.

Pelican Water's home water filtration system removes chlorine from tap water before it reaches your shower, freeing you from the damaging effects of chlorine.

If you need to eliminate the negative effects of hard water minerals while filtering your water of chlorine and other chemicals, then the low maintenance Pelican Combo home water filtration system and water softener alternative is your answer.

"We bought our filter in February 2012. It was easy to install and has worked flawlessly. Now, our water tastes great right from the tap and there is no more scale buildup in our shower! One unexpected benefit is that my wife, who has suffered from almost daily migraines for over twenty years, now has very few headaches; they stopped within a few days of installation. Pelican has been a miracle for us! Thank you!"

David L. - Peoria, AZ

"We are delighted with our Pelican water system. My skin feels smoother, my teeth are whiter, the clothes and dishes are cleaner, and we can have a drink of pure water from any faucet in the house. The set up went smoothly too. The carbon dust didn't really accumulate in the toilets after the first night. I didn't clean the tanks until about a month later as there wasn't any problem. For us, it is part of our living a healthier lifestyle."

Bette - Clarendon Hills

"My parents water was so awful. It had a bad smell as well as taste, but with this filter system they can now drink and cook with their own tap water. Thank you Pelican Water Systems."

Pelican PC600 Whole House Water Filter is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 144.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from in Tucson the ground water is packed with sediments, constantly ruining our fixtures and appliances. I expected a large improvement in our water quality with this system, but so far it has been so much better than what I had anticipated. we'll see how long the filters last.
Date published: 2016-12-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Features. I'm happy with this product and it was easy to install with the installation kit I purchased. Patrick, the customer service person I talked to was very helpful and answered all of my questions. I also talked to Mike, a technician about the install and he was also very helpful. The PC600 does just what they said it would, my hair, scalp and skin is no longer scaly and itchy. I saw a difference right away.
Date published: 2018-07-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well made system. Looks good, works good, and has a good hook up system to plumb it in to the house's water distribution. I had no problems, I self installed the system, but you must read the instructions to prepare the filter system for installation. Pre-soaking the carbon filter media more than 48 ours will also result with less carbon being released on the initial usage of the system.
Date published: 2017-04-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I wanted. I wanted a system to eliminate the chlorine and smell that was coming from my municipal water source. We noticed several times per month the oder was stronger than others. The Pelican PC600 was the perfect solution. The oder and chlorine level went away at once. Now when we shower, wash clothes, do dishes and drink the water we are more than pleased. A note of caution is that a plumber or good handyman should install the unit to make sure that everything is operating properly. This insurers many good years usage.
Date published: 2018-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! We absolutely love our home water filter! It was easy to install and it did not impact our water pressure and the taste is absolutely phenomenal! The taste is clear and a noticeable change to everyone, even guests. The only con I can think of is the lingering black specs in the bathtub when the water is out.
Date published: 2018-06-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I only bought the regular tank filter for chlorine reduction and we had our friend who is a plumber do the installation. He bought fittings and pipes etc to install it correctly. My town water went from completely nasty to tasting like I'm drinking out of bottled water I purchased at a store. No more jugs to haul up the stairs of my town home etc. and cleaning up spilled water everywhere on my hardwood floor due to the water jug to water dispenser upside down action. I started with just the chlorine filter because I thought maybe it would be enough for my skin to get that removed and I was right--my skin is no longer raw-even after one shower use. No more slathering on moisturizer and Vaseline to my hands multiple times a day--the water does not damage my skin any more.
Date published: 2019-02-21
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole House Peace of Mind We bought the water softner first and then the whole house filter. Don't make this mistake!! Buy them together, it is well worth it. Our water tastes so much better and the whole house (appliances, etc.) is now protected. The folks at Pelican are GREAT. I have recommended to three friends.
Date published: 2019-07-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removed stinky water! We had experienced a very nasty smell to our water, hot and cold. This went on for about 6 months while we figured out what the problem was. After the filter was installed, the smell was gone within 24 hours and has not returned. Installation should be done by an experienced installer.
Date published: 2018-06-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy instalation I purchased the PC600 one month ago and followed the set-up instructions to the letter. The only particular problem I experienced was that the pre-filter kept leaking around the threads between top and bottom halves of the filter housing. It took about 5 or 6 attempts tinkering with just the right amount if tightening and copious amounts of plumber’s grease around the “O” ring to finally attain a leak free seal. Aside from that, I’m very pleased. My water is crystal clear and has no smell what-so- ever.
Date published: 2019-08-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable Performance Bought this to improve my water quality at home at first I was a little skeptical and now I am so glad I bought it, everything they claim is true my skin and hair are so soft and the water is so refreshing and yes way better than bottled water. Installation was not hard at all they have online video on how to install I recommend you buy the installation Kit it makes it so easy. and their customer service/support is world class and unmatched. They will make you feel like a valued customer.
Date published: 2018-06-01
Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product is of good quality. I was suspicious of the valve connection system for the cylinder that has compression fittings. They were water tight with little effort.The instructions are average, but they have good phone support.
Date published: 2017-06-20
Rated 3 out of 5 by from difficult install Directions said easy installation,hum.The contractor had to make 3 house calls to install over three days. Apparently missing 2 male fittings for the filter. Had to find a plumbing specialist store to find correct fitting because other home improvement stores did not carry this fitting with correct threading. Nine hours later...FINALLY finished!!.
Date published: 2018-05-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy First follow the instructions, let carbon tank soak 48 hrs min, flush, then back flush. Also some good videos on Youtube showing install and 5 yr review. To be extra sure no carbon gets into my toilet tanks, faucets etc, I added a 2nd blue sediment filter as a post filter. My Father-in-law has had this unit in 2 different houses. Between his opinion and my experience it is great. Our water was not terrible but notice a difference. Plus just installed new dishwasher and washing machine. When replaced even with okay water noticed build up and tiny sediment from not having a filter. Def worth your investment. Friends had a different brand unit professionally installed for way more money. I did mine with sharkbite and Pex tubing. Plumbing can be tough but always go with snug connections, then couple 1/4 turns. I only had two minor drips. Avg DIY guy. Again follow instructions with soaking, read some negative reviews on sites but can tell people did not follow instructions. Be patient. As Mike Holmes says, "Do it Right" Even at a super minimum the sediment filter will help. Carbon unit def plus and recommend it
Date published: 2018-07-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not the easiest to install (no fault of the mfr.) Very pleased with the product. My water is noticeably softer. The difficulty in installing this product was due to the location of where it had to be placed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like everything about my whole house water filter system except that it does not filter out fluoride other than that it's great

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Water Filter We bought a a large Pelican water filter a few weeks ago to remove chlorine and other chemicals from our community supplied water. Our entire house smelled like a pool before installing the PC1000 Whole House water filter. Now we feel it’s safe to drink our water and the house is not over powered with a chlorine odor. I would definitely recommend this product to my friends and neighbors who are suffering with similar problems. It doesn’t look bad either because it has a very attractive stainless steel shell. They even sent some wax to maintain the exterior of the tank. We’re very satisfied at this point. We’re saving a lot of money now that we’re not purchasing several cases of water per week for just drinking and lavatory use. It was an easy item to install too, (if you have some prior plumbing experience)
Date published: 2018-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install. I did a lot of research on different brands and set ups. I read 100s of reviews on all different brands and decided on Pelican water. Wow what a difference in my whole house water supply. Every person in my five member family has commented on how great their skin feels now with this system. Our city water was going through a “chlorine flush “ the last couple of months and I had to do something. Thank you Pelican water for such a great system. We can now take a hot shower and get out without smelling like chlorine. As a DIY kind of guy a did this on my own teaching my 18 year old son and it was a breeze. I only had to make 2 trips to Lowes. Lol. I also purchased your installation kit which makes the install a bit easier. Over all I am 100% satisfied with this system and highly recommend it to family and friends. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water filter installation First of all I want to commend the OUTSTANDING TECH. SUPPORT TEAM, everytime i called them they were very professional and answered all my questions immediately. Wish all companies offered this level of tech. support. Excellent documentation on how to install the filter system. Finished installing the filter syem today, and when I turned it on it all worked! Leaving it for 72 hours without any large volumes of water being used. A GREAT PRODUCT OVERALL.
Date published: 2019-01-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great water I bought this water filtration system and UV filter due to having a contaminated well. The well is cleaned, but I wanted double assurance that the water would remain potable. I love the system though I did not realize it would be such a big system. I also did not realize how much plumbing was needed to put it in. The plumbing cost was $1600 alone. Now that all of those issues have been addressed and we are up and running we love it.
Date published: 2018-09-01
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Still early but water not clean yet Installation was pretty easy, though the soaking and flushing process was a bit tedious, but I get it. The water taste is a little better, but the water has gone discolored and still tastes metallic. Sales guy told me it’s part of a “descaling” process in my pipes and will take 4-6 weeks to clear. Wish I was made aware of that up front. We will see. This review will either get better or a lot worse when I update in 4 weeks.
Date published: 2019-10-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome addition to our household's water system! Several members of our family have a Pelican water system and rave about it. We need to add a whole house water filtration system to make our water more "drinkable." You know. Taste better. Love this system. It works with our current salt water softener system which we like, and was easy to install. You won't go wrong with buying this system. Next house, we're going to make sure it's Pelican all the way!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great System Our customer LOVED the new pelican 600 water filtration system! We removed an old salty water softener and installed the pelican whole home water filtration. They contacted us the next day to let us know how good their water tasted right out of the faucet and that it made heir water softer! Thanks pelican. We’ll be ordering this System for everyone of our customers, now that we know how to set them up!
Date published: 2018-06-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!! I bought this a month ago and I’m so glad I did. The system is wonderful and I can now take showers and drink the water from my faucet with confidence knowing that all bacteria and everything that is in the water has been taken out. I love my water system. Thank you Pelican for making the system with no salt. It leaves my hair and skin very soft. I would totally recommend this product!
Date published: 2018-07-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Night and Day We bought unit and had our plumber install. After start up sequence, the difference in water was immediate. We are so pleased with the product. We had minor issue with black carbon upon start up, but it clears within a few minutes of running water. We have had salt systems before, this, at least initially, has sold us on the process. Thank you for the quick reply and shipping.
Date published: 2019-12-07
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fresh like a spring I am very satisfied with this system. Was fairly easy to install as a DIY homeowner too. I added a sediment filter so I can step up the filtration to .5 micron. We have a good amount of sediment in the water. I will have a 5 micron and then the .5 micron sediment filters. This system also did not effect the water pressure or flow in any discernible way. Great overall.
Date published: 2019-04-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from We won't own a home without one! After having this system in place for six years at our previous home, when we moved recently this was an immediate MUST HAVE for our new home! It's amazing how much difference we noticed before and after the system was installed. Water tastes and feels better, we are cleaner, our clothes and dishes are cleaner and the ice in the fridge has no sediment! Hallelujah!
Date published: 2020-01-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good as expected, one easy fixable flaw The hose bib attatchment to flush the system is great, why not sell with two attachments? why should you make a big mess, when you could just attach a second hose? the $2.00 dollar bib attachment would have made me way happier and way easier. I don't even see a place to buy a second one? I called a friend who recently bought one and borrowed his attachment...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good water. Easy install I installed a whole house system a couple weeks ago. Easy install! Noticed the water quality improvement almost immediately. We always bought water to drink and make coffee with ( we are on rural water system ). It tasted bad and we didn't like the thought of what our bodies were absorbing in the shower or bath. It now tastes better and we feel cleaner.
Date published: 2019-01-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water tastes great now! Our water had a strong chemical taste and odor. It took us several attempts to find a plumber who wanted to be bothered installing the filter, but we finally got a response from one of the guys Pelican recommended. This is NOT something you are going to be installing by yourself. Anyway, the water is now delicious and odor-free and I’m very happy!
Date published: 2018-12-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Removed chlorine and fluoride as promised! I bought a whole house filtration system for chlorine and other chemicals plus 2 whole house filtration systems for fluoride because I am extremely hypersensitive to both chlorine and fluoride and did need 2 fluoride systems to get levels down low enough I did not react. Anyone hypersensitive can not handle above .07ppm (they add .7ppm of fluoride to water on top of whatever the naturally occuring level of calcium fluoride is already in it). I had lived in the country and had spring water and was nervous when we moved to town that we would not be able to get enough chlorine and fluoride out for me to be able to use the water, but I am very excited to say that I can use it just fine!! I have recommended this company and their filters to many people, some of who I know have purchased them and are happy as well. Highly recommend this company. Their customer service is great and they are always helpful with questions and very knowledgeable.

will this remove Benzine ? PC600/TC1000

Asked by: Gene
While carbon is known to reduce such chemicals, whole house systems are not certified to do so. We would recommend having your water tested to see how high the level is and then add a drinking system to your home in combination with whole house carbon until the well water is corrected.

How It Works - Pelican Premium Carbon Filtration System

Premium 4-Stage Whole House Water Filtration System back to top

Stage 1
5-Micron Pre-filter System - The sediment pre-filter system reduces sand, silt, sediment and debris in the supplied water down to 5 micron (20 times smaller than a human hair) in size. Routine replacement of this 5-micron sediment filter will increase the effectiveness and protect plumbing and appliances from excess sediment. With average use, each filter is effective for approximately 6-9 months.

Stages 2 & 3
Catalytic Granular Activated Carbon Media (GAC) - Pelican utilizes a high-grade mesh blend of catalytic coconut shell based activated carbon in the Pelican Carbon Series Premium Whole House Water Filters. Learn More

These media are designed to filter chlorine, chloramines, pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, industrial solvents and hundreds of other contaminants that may be present in your water.

Stage 4
Pelican Media Guard - Copper and Zinc Oxidation Media (KDF-55) - We also include a patented bacteriostatic copper-zinc reduction oxidation media for the purpose of preventing and reducing the potential growth of bacteria and algae.

As a market leader, Pelican Water uses only the top-rated valves and tanks in the manufacturing of each Pelican system, all of which are backed by an industry leading limited lifetime parts warranty.

Reasons to Use the Pelican Carbon Series Premium Whole House Water Filter back to top

There are many reasons why our whole house water filter is right for you. Below are just a few:
  • The large diameter of the tank holds a significant amount of water filtration carbon media, increasing the overall performance and lifespan of the filter.
  • The replacement cost is a fraction of the cost of comparable products from competitors.

Up-flow versus Downflow Water Filtration Systems back to top

The Pelican Carbon Series Whole House Water Filter Systems is an Up-Flow system, allowing you to change the filter media with a minimum of fuss. This doesn.t just save you saves you money. Comparable down-flow home water filtration systems do not allow the consumer to replace filter media, as the homeowner would require special knowledge and tools to complete the task.

Down-flow water filtration systems often makes less effective use of filtration media because they have channeling issues. Channeling occurs because water takes the path of least resistance. Over time, water forms small channels in the media, and the water then flows through the same channels repeatedly. Channeling prevents water from reaching unexpired portions of media. As a result, a down-flow system is less effective at filtering chemicals from the water.

To combat channeling, the Pelican home water filtration system forces water up from the bottom of the tank in a swirling motion. This motion causes the carbon media to swirl as well, allowing the maximum contact between the filtration media and water. The result is a very efficient Up-Flow filtration system that eliminates the possibility of channeling.

Replacement Media Vs. Replacement Tank back to top

Some companies require the periodic replacement of the entire media tank. Not only is this ineffective, it's also unnecessarily expensive. A Pelican carbon water filtration system only requires you to replace the media, not the tank.

Why do we only require media replacement when other companies insist on replacing the whole tank? To understand, you need to know a little about how Pelican's carbon media filters water. A Pelican carbon home water filtration system works through adsorption, the process by which suspended chemicals and contaminants water are absorbed by carbon media on contact. The carbon adsorbs dissolved contaminants without releasing any chemicals back into the water.

Eventually, a water filtration system's carbon reaches a point where it can no longer absorb any more matter and needs to be replaced. Pelican takes a cost effective and environmentally friendly approach to replacing filter media. Instead of replacing the entire tank, you simply remove the old media and insert the new.

Some companies insist on replacing the entire media tank and use scare tactics to convince consumers a new home water filtration system is required with each replacement. Consumers don.t just pay for the cost of the new tank and fittings.they also must pay a plumber to remove the old system and install the new one. From our perspective, that's like paying for a new car every time you run out of gas. It's not cost effective, it's not environmentally friendly, and it's certainly not convenient.

No Water Waste back to top

The Pelican Carbon Series Systems use an up-flow design and do not waste any water while filtering and softening/conditioning the water for your entire home. While other systems use a down-flow design requiring them to backwash once or twice a week wasting 100-300 gallons of water each time they backwash. The fact is that we cannot afford to waste one drop of water. Water is one the most important resources we have on earth.

No Electricity back to top

The Pelican Carbon Series Systems eliminates the need for an electronic head for backwashing because of its up-flow design. No moving parts means less maintenance and no service calls for damaged moving parts that render the system unable to filter your water.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. Does the Pelican Carbon Series PC600 Premium Whole House Water Filters pre-filter system remove COPEPODS from the water?
Yes. Copepods are tiny crustaceans commonly found in reservoirs and public water sources. The little creatures range in size from 30 to 50 microns, meaning the largest are visible with the naked eye but small enough to move through many water filtration systems. This poses a difficulty if you eat a kosher diet (or if you just find the idea of tiny crustaceans in you water icky). The 5-micron prefilter provided with the Pelican Carbon Series PC600 Premium home water filtration system will remove Copepods. This type of water filtration system is approved for removing copepods by OU Kosher, the world's leading kosher certification program.
