The U.S. has one of the best water treatment systems in the world-waterborne threats such as cholera and typhoid are almost unheard of elsewhere. That doesn't mean, however, that our water can't be contaminated by microorganisms and with our water treatment infrastructure aging rapidly, it's highly possible we're going to see an increase in boil water advisories in the future. Pelican's Drinking Water Purifier is a water purification treatment system that is unlike UV or other methods of treating water with chemicals. It physically filters out the bacteria and viruses from water using a patented and certified filtration technology that incorporates the best methods of mechanical filtration. Meets the EPA's Guide Standard for microbiological purifiers. This system will reduce chlorine, lead, virus, bacteria, cysts, particulates and numerous organic compounds. This state-of-the-art filtration system uses a triple filter design to reduce unwanted elements in your drinking water. It will discontinue water flow when its capacity to filter unwanted elements is exhausted, which will safeguard your family against contaminated water. Our system has been rigorously tested and certified to ensure your protection against viruses, bacteria and lead and comes with a built in meter to prevent untreated water from ever getting into your drinking water when your filters life is exhausted. The filters last six months or 1,000 gal. and are quick and easy to replace. Color: Oil Rubbed Bronze.
