DELAND, Fla., Sept. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- During the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, Pelican Water Systems has published critical information regarding water treatment and safety that families in the affected areas of Texas should read to ensure their water is drinkable.
All families who own a Pelican Water filter system should be aware that after flooding all water filter systems must be disinfected before the units can effectively treat your incoming water. The steps for disinfection differ based on what type of filter system you own. Families who own salt-free water softeners, systems that use a carbon filter like the Whole House Water Filter, or reverse osmosis water filters can read step-by-step instructions by reading the article, "How to Disinfect Your Existing Water Filter System", at PelicanWater.com. If your water filter system's instructions are not included you can call Pelican Water directly at 844-219-4863 for assistance.
If your drinking water comes from a private well, it's safe to assume your water is contaminated until the well has been properly tested and treated. Call your local health department and inquire about free well water testing in your area. There is a possibility that your local officials may be overwhelmed with demand – in this situation you can order a well testing kit from Pelican Water to start the process.
Local municipalities will likely issue boil water alerts if the quality of the drinking water in your neighborhood is questionable. Take all alerts seriously. If there is a boil water alert in your area, always boil your water for at least one minute before using it to drink, cook, make ice, wash dishes, or brush your teeth. There are many other sets of protocol of which families should be aware. For more information regarding boil water alerts and well water testing read the following article, "How to Ensure Your Water is Safe to Drink After a Flood", at PelicanWater.com.
