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 the best value of any whole house water filtering system in the U.S.A.

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 is the best value on any whole house water filter system in America!

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 140.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Filtration System I ordered a new filtration system with two charcoal filters, one fiber filter and an ultraviolet light. I received a drawing which showed how everything had to go together and I took that to a local plumbing shop and picked out all the product I needed. It went together very well and the system works like it is supposed to. We love our system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good whole house water filter This my second P-600 filter. First one worked very well the 5 years advertised time period. So it was time to replace filter. However instead of buying just a replacement media I decided to buy entire filter. This way I had uninterrupted filtered water supply and no rush for emptying old tank. However next time I will buy media only.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from water tastes great I bought this seven years ago in Ohio, moved and installed it to my home in Florida 4 years ago and it works great. Our guests comment on how good our water tastes. A Costco subcontractor selling water filtration systems offered to test our water free without obligation. He was amazed as to how pure the water is. No chlorine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tasting Water Again Since we moved to South Florida the water we used always had a funny taste, color and smell. Thus we never drank from the tap until we bought our whole house filter system. The water tastes great, clothes look cleaned and the skin feels great after a shower. I highly recommend you getting one of these systems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5 year review I guess a good review is one over the long term. Well 5 years later it time to replace the carbon bed and because the 600 is down to soak the carbon I can tell you our city water tastes horrible. The chlorine is really evident even in our coffee. Another day to get 600 back online and I can’t wait!!

I have check it coming directly from the Pc600. Not sure it takes out all the impurity. It does take out chlorine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a difference! Planning out the install was key. I went with all copper. Install labor was expensive. I highly recommend installing a 3 way bypass. The installation kit made it easier. Get an extra hose bib connector, it will make it easier. Water tastes great now and clear! NO REGRETS.
Date published: 2018-06-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well Bought this about two weeks ago and so far I have No complaints. Must be installed in the exact orientation as shown in instructions. My allowable space did not conform, so I had to add extra paths for the Sch 40 pipe. No big deal if one can get all the cutoffs integrated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Attractive tank. So needed this! And so glad you had a sale. Rio Rancho water is very, very hard and some sediment actually got into my washing machine hose and had to be flushed out. Have noticed a difference immediately in the taste and texture of my water. Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good looking piece of equipment. Installed with ease and neatly sits in corner of my garage taking up very little space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clean, good tasting water in an area where the water is awful and over-treated. Thank you Pelican! It was installed quickly and efficiently. Changing the filters is easy - only two places to turn off, I'm 78 yrs old. That is important to me.

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.
  • 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.

Premium Stainless Steel - Limited Lifetime Warranty back to top


The Pelican Premium Water Systems are wrapped in premium stainless steel to ensure long life, durability and unsurpassed quality ... Not to mention they look amazing!


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 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.
