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.

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 Great Product Lacking on Instructions The product selection process was pretty extensive. I looked at reviews and made multiple phone calls to other suppliers as well as Pelican. We are on a private water system which is very heavily chlorinated. The water is not hard, so filtration was the primary focus. Being a monitored, although not municipal system, I was not too worried about contamination. Our house has two baths, but only two retired residents. Not high volume. The Pelican rep recommended the smaller 600 system. He did not push to upsell. I installed the filter system, and the results were amazing and immediate. Water from all faucets is very drinkable. Showers are cleaner rinsing. No reduction in water flow or pressure. Very pleased with purchase. My only negatives revolve around the install manual. I am a pretty knowledgeable handy man with a reasonable tool chest. Even with that it took multiple trips to store for valves and parts. You will need 1' to 3/4 adapters which are not called out. They also can be hard to find these days. If you are doing this install, carefully look over the manual. Be mindful of clearances and the function of the bypass loop. Notice it takes two to three days outdoors to soak the tank media. Don't expect to get one day and install the next.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Filter System I'm a home builder and recommend this filter to all of my clients. I have one in my own home which eliminated all the chorine smell and taste in my water. I bought and installed one in my daughter's house since her water tasted and smelled dirty (even though it was county water). The PC1000 eliminated that and their water now smells and tastes fresh.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Water Improvement I purchased the PC600 whole house water filter system about a month ago. I had plumbers install the system. The water taste (none), smell (none) is so much better than before. When I filled up the water bowls for my pets, after a day, there was a film on the bowl when I went to refill. Now, there is nothing, the bowl looks clean. So not only the humans in the house noticed the difference in the water, my furry kids noticed as well., as I see them going to the bowl more often now. I would definitely recommend the system.

The salesman was very thorough when explaining the unit to us and we received a good, veterans discount also. I only wish that our plumber would have read the installation instructions first as it would have prevented flushing the carbon dust through the plumbing in the house. After a month having the system installed, we are very pleased with the filtration of our water.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional quality and simplicity I originally purchased the P 600 series 5 years ago. Wants to system had gone through its lifecycle I ordered the P 1000 series to be able to handle a longer life cycle of filtered water. The system is simplistic but high-quality and we have it connected to the water line that comes directly into the house so that we can have fresh clean water coming out of every tab including watering the backyard. The only maintenance to the system is changing out the cotton filter every 90 days. How much easier can it be than that?! We will continue to purchase this product and filters for as long as we own this home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Instant change in our water! I consider myself to be a "water snob" that can instantly taste a difference in water. We regularly use Brita water pitchers but over the past several months our water began smelling terribly. Sinks, showers, toilets - you name it there was a funky smell that wouldn't go away. We researched filter systems and were impressed by the reviews and price of the Pelican system. Immediately after installation the smell in our water is completely gone! We instantly felt a difference when showering and being able to drink water directly from the sink or from our fridge without any extra filtering is AMAZING! We never realized something so small would make such a huge impact! We also used an installer Pelican recommended and he was fantastic. Highly recommend the Pelican system!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I wish you tried to up sell me a unit higher Do i like this product? You bet, 100% love this system, it works wonderfully. Then why not 5 stars? Because i was not sold the appropriate system for my needs and after 1 year I feel I have tested the system enough to give a review What do I mean by this? well what I mean is while yes I am in a 2 bathroom house, unfortunately if both of us are taking a shower, which we like to do at full unrestricted pressure then we can tell there has been a slight decline in the water pressure. Further more if we are running the dish washer or the washing machine then it is noticeable that we are not pressure washing our skin off. It is also noticeable when I go to water my mango trees while somebody is washing dishes. That said if I was a normal person who likes a gentile shower perhaps this would have been perfect and the sales man was looking out for me. Which he was a wonderful guy, very friendly, very knowledgeable, helped me not spend more than I needed to because I was tempted to just buy everything and call it a day and he pointed out some of it would not provide me any value. Getting into some of the things I like. It costs about $35 a year to maintain in mesh filters and $200 every 5 years for the carbon filter. Further I had them install it and they did a very professional job leaving everything nice and clean, everything is in nice strait lines and then they took the time to show me how to do the maintenance on my own so i do not need to call anybody when it comes time for filter replacement. Best part no tools required, everything is included with it. At the end of my day I strongly recommend. If you are eco friendly your probably fine. However if your a horrible human like I am and like to pressure wash your self and never want to see a drop in water pressure. Make sure that is very clear up front. And maybe make the decision your self to go up a tier it is worth every penny

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. This type of water filtration system is approved for removing copepods by OU Kosher, the world's leading kosher certification program.
