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.

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 4.8 out of 5 by 221.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Whole House System I thought the sales people were easy to deal with online and did not try to over sale product. The whole house system was an easy DIY project to install with good directions. After install I had a small leak, customer service was quick to deal with the issue and overnighted the part at no cost. I like the idea that I can reuse the tank and only need to replace the media.

We recently moved into a house with well water, and it did not taste good at all. We could immediately taste the difference.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great to be able to drink tap water again Early to really judge. Based so far, its good. We enjoy the change in water taste. The one thing I would say is there should be 2 hose attachments, not 1. I ordered a second, so was delayed in my install. Without the second, I would need to let the water flood my floor when I'm flushing it out.
Date published: 2021-04-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more cat pee smell in our water! We have been extremely pleased with the ability of the PC1000 to filter our municipal tap water. Our local water utility normally uses chloramines to treat our water but temporarily switched to chlorine only during March. We immediately noticed a significant chlorine smell when running water from a tap, especially when showering. It almost had an ammonia/cat pee smell to it. Already fed up with the hazards of chloramine byproducts we researched in earnest whole house filters. We selected the PC1000 based on features, price and longevity. It has the ability to filter both chlorine and chloramines, the price is below competitor products for chloramine filtering, and it will last over twice as long up to a 1M gallons. Customer support has been stellar, replacing our initial filter that was damaged by the shipping company, and providing answers to numerous questions along the way. We did the self-install and the process was very smooth with the online videos being very helpful as they provide additional tips not present in the provided manual. Besides recommending the product be packaged better to avoid damage in shipping, so far we have no complaints about the performance and look forward to having clean healthy water for a long time!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install My name is Duke Woodrick, and I purchased two PC1000 Whole House Water Filter systems on Wednesday, March 17, 2021. UPS delivered the two systems to my address on Friday, March 27, 2021. I hired a plumber to install the two systems (one at my house and the other at my Daughter’s townhouse). We filled the two tanks with water according to the instruction manual. Then we moved the two tanks to another location to wait out the 48 hours for the carbon inside the tanks to soak. That’s when we noticed the two systems were different in size (one a ½ an inch taller than the other). The outer chrome shell or casing is loose on the taller of the two, not attached to the bottom black boot or the In/Out valve assembly. There didn’t seem to be any leakage, so I decided to use it rather than sending it back. Other than the tank and casing not correctly assembled, the system was easy to put together. Note: Obvious, this system was not well inspected before it left your property. Duke

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My water is so much better My water had harsh deposits, odor, and made my hair feel like straw but since my whole house filter was installed (no softener) my water is so good, it feels like I have a water softener, the odor is gone, and my water tastes fine although I still do use a brita filter too because of copper pipes. I was itchy and actually getting rashes from the water before and now I just feel clean after a shower, this filter works great, 1 month and so far I am so happy I got it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to setup and install. Amazing results The hardest part was waiting for the 48 hr soak so I could test the system. 50 plus hours later and some plumbing updates the system is in and running well. Within the next few weeks I will have the water tested. I must say that the water smells better and tastes better. We were getting an odd smell if you left water in a glass over night and the taste was very metallic. Both are gone. The other great thing is no more refrigerator filters. They became costly and very hard to find and I think the last batch we purchased might have been fake replacements. So far this seems like a great investment.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No pressure relief valve The only problem my plumber found was that there’s no pressure relief valve on the pre-filter. My old system had it and it was helpful in changing filters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from City water smells and tastes like a swimming pool This is a nice filter system. I would have given it 5 stars but the stainless housing came with a large dent in it. I was more concerned about the filtering than the looks so I kept it instead of returning it. Our city water smells and tastes like a swimming pool. I understand the need for chlorine but wanted to filter it out of our house. I installed this system myself. Followed the install instructions to a T as far as soak, flush and backflush goes. I put it in service and did get some of the gray water it mentions but that only lasted a couple of days. My water is chlorine free and who knows what else it is removing. The showers are much better on the hair and the skin!! I can drink water out of my bathroom faucets. Thank you!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from From Sandbar Townhomes Only thing we did not like is the plastic to metal connection on the in and out, would be nice to have metal threads for a very solid and secure connection. Now I guess I need replacement filters, would have have thought at least one replacement would have come with the system. Did not even need the installtion kit, it got thrown out by the plumber. Otherwise, easy online purchase, excellent ontime delivery, very solid and well made system, fairly straight forward to install by a professional plumber.

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 copper-zinc reduction oxidation media for the purpose of chlorine.

As a market leader, Pelican Water uses only the top-rated valves and tanks in the manufacturing of each Pelican system. For full warranty information click here.

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.
  • Replacement is extremely easy. When it comes time to replace the filter, all you have to do is replace the media inside the tank. There is no plumbing required and no need to replace the entire tank, as there is with other whole house systems.
Can you imagine spring like water coming through every faucet of your home? That’s what you’ll have when you use Pelican Water’s Premium Whole House Water Filter System. Say goodbye to dry, itchy skin and unpleasant odors caused by the chemicals in your water, and hello to sparkling clean water that you’ll enjoy drinking.

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 time.it 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-P 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-P Premium home water filtration system will remove Copepods.
