The Pelican Water 5 GPM 0.75 in. Water Heater Shield is installed on the feed water line just prior to the water heater (tankless or traditional). The 5-micron filter removes dirt, rust, salt, silt and sediment. Siliphos media within the filter chamber prevents scale and stops corrosion by forming a thin protective layer on the metallic surfaces within the water heater. The filter housings are tested and certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 58 for material and structural integrity requirements and are FDA approved. Its 5-micron filter reduces dirt, rust, silt and sediment particles down to 1/20th the size of a human hair. The filters are tested and certified by NSF International to NSF/ANSI Standard 42 for material requirements only. Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
