Carbon Adsorption Filtration back to top
The Pelican Carbon Series Premium Whole House Water Filter utilizes the highest grade carbons available on the market which were designed/developed to significantly reduce chlorine, chloramines, sediment and/or particulate matter, tastes, odors and hundreds of potential chemicals that may be present in the water supply entering your home. View more WQA and EPA recommended uses for granular activated carbon.

The Pelican Carbon Series uses a granular activated carbon produced from coconut shell by a high temperature activation process under stringent quality control. It has a large surface area, high mechanical hardness, high pore volume and chemical stability.

In addition the Pelican Carbon Series utilize Non-chemically impregnated activated carbon. It has been surface modified during manufacturing, to significantly enhance the carbons' capabilities for rapidly decomposing noxious compounds. The carbon media used also has a much higher surface area than most other competitive brands on the market. This enables them to reduce larger quantities of other organic species which may be present in your water. Learn More

Upflow vs. Downflow back to top
The Pelican Carbon Series Whole House Water Filter Systems are specially designed as an Up-Flow System that does not require any special process or instructions for replacing the media. Other Down-Flow Systems on the market do not allow for the media replacement as an option because the homeowner would have to have special knowledge or tools to complete the task. Many water filtration experts agree that down-flow systems often have channeling issues in the media making them less effective in filtering out chemicals in the water because the water is unable to reach the unexpired media.

Channeling is the process where small tunnels form in the media allowing water to flow in the same channel every time. Water always takes the path of least resistance. The Pelican Systems force the water in an Up-Flow direction up from the bottom of the tank in a swirling motion causing the carbon media to swirl. This motion allows the water to have maximum contact with the carbon media resulting in a very effective filtration process without the possibility of channeling. This is found to be the most effective design in whole house water filtration systems.

Replacement Media vs. Replacement Tank

It is important to understand how the carbon media inside the Pelican Carbon Series Systems works; Adsorption: the process by which matter (chemicals) adheres to the surface areas of a solid adsorbent material (carbon media). In layman's terms the chemicals in your water are adsorbed into the carbon media on contact. The carbon media does not release any chemicals back into your water once they are adsorbed. We offer the replacement media as a more cost effective and environmentally friendly approach. When it comes time to replace the media, you are not throwing away a tank, fittings, or having to try and dispose of a complete system. Not to mention the cost of hiring a plumber to remove the old tank and install the new one.

Some companies are trying to discourage this process and use tactics to scare the consumer into thinking that they must buy a completely new system when the media expires; this is unnecessary and not very cost effective. The media is the fuel for the system (it's like the gas in your car). If you had to replace your car every time you ran out of gas that would be crazy, the same goes for the filtration system. The tanks and fittings are designed for this specific application. The cost of the system does not only include the media inside the tank, it includes many factors: the tank, fittings, media, and labor to build, shipping, advertising, and overhead. The media inside the tank is only part of the cost of a complete system therefore you cannot rate the effectiveness of the media based on the low cost to replace it.

Water waste
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.


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.
