Finally, an alternative to salt softeners. I hated, hated, hated feeling SLIMY everytime I got out of the shower. I never felt like I got the soap completely off, plus all the salt does is mask the hardness, it doesn't eliminate it! With this Pelican unit, I don't have the slimy feeling, the hardness is actually removed and I don't have to buy salt pellets, store them and lug them around anymore. FREEDOM!

We love this product. I was at first hesitant due to the one negative review. Clearly that person didn't read the detailed explanation offered by the manufacturer. I was concerned about spotting, but we use the Lemishine that was included in the pack and we have none. We wanted to keep the healthy minerals in our water as we have kids, so this was a primary driver for us. The water tastes great and best of all doesn't stick like scale any longer. We couldn't be happier. My only regret is that I didn't buy the accompanying carbon filter up front. We bought that later and now we're totally happy.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruhi "Saltless" Softeners Do Not Work
Bought the saltless system thinking it is the latest and the best. It does not work as it is claimed. I have before and after digital hardness meters. Incoming water is about 350ppm, after is 290ppm. I also have a carbon filter as well. It looks pretty in the utility room, though. The technical support constantly told me that it will get better and the hard water I am getting from the faucets are just becasue softened water is dissolving accumulated scale. One dishwasher is wasted already and going through the second one. I am going to get rid of it. Also, it is disproportionally expensive. Stay away!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MrZ2 Easy to install / use
This system is very easy to install, there is no wiring and no additional plumbing required for the drain. My is outside where the city water comes in, all I had to do is cut the line, plumb in the sediment filter and then the main tank. Another great feature that I like, there is no salt to replace or flush, hence no need for a drain. In my install I would need to run plumbing another 30 feet to get to a drain as my codes do not allow for the discharge to be out on the ground, not sure why or if the salt systems would kill the grass.
What I really liked was not having to run electricity out to the site for the timer to flush the system and waste more water.
This is also a beautiful shiny stainless steel tank that looks like it will last forever.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SpinDoc Nice system
First, this is not the cheapest rescaled-softener out there, but ,I did my homework and shopped around including quotes from Home Depots Rainsoft contractor. For my NJ home where our city water hardness is off the chart, it was the right system for me. It arrived in less than 2 days. And I was able to install it myself. Im in no way a plumb r but I consider myself to have a better than average ability when it comes to home projects. After reading the instructions a few times and back to hd to buy the install kit it took about an hour to move the supply lines and hook everything up without leaks. BTW the install kit is simple screw on and push-to-connect. Thus far the system works great. I bought replacement filters that are less expensive for 4 than others out there priced for 1. That was a nice surprise.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by mrLee Water softner part did not work
Water in Utah is very hard & I was tired of climbing on a ladder to clean my 8' tall hard water/ clogged up rain-shower head every 2 months. I also like the "no salt" theory so I bought the system from the manufacturer a year ago & had it professionally installed. I got the system with the water filter & softner. The filter part works great I feel good about drinking water out of any faucet in the house & not having to buy those expensive frig water filters. The softener part did not work for me, still having to clean out my clogged shower head every 2 months. I will give Pelican the benefit of the doubt that the water may be scientifically soften, just not for my shower head.

This softener met our needs and made life easier since we don't have to constantly refill salt pellets like our old softener. Be sure to read the instructions and change any inline filters to appliances (fridge, etc) and flush water heater.

Installed unit 2 years ago. Huge waste of your hard earned dollars. Had my water tested for hardness before and after installation, zero difference. After 1 year of use had to change my electric hot water heater element due to lime build up. Still have lime build up on shower heads and faucets. Changing the filter is easy not sure what the "filter" is designed to do, If I wanted a whole house filter I would have purchased one and saved some serious coin. I tried leaving a review on Pelican website and they will not post it, that alone should tell ya something. Your money is better spent on Lotto...
