How that this product works, do I need to change filters, how longs does it last? .Is this an actual water softener or just a water conditioner?

Asked by epmaciel July 22, 2015

Answers

I bought the system that has the water filter and the water softener. I bought it to keep my shower heads from clogging up with hard water. It doesnt work for that !! I still have to clean & unclogg my 2 shower heads in the house every 2 months.

What is actually in the tank? Is it charcoal, filter media, chemical, or other?

Asked by Curious January 20, 2016

I'm in water treatment and have sold several of these. 95% of the Customers that purchased them were dissatisfied and ultimately replaced it with a traditional softener.. It absolutely will descale plumbing, and keep plumbing clear. Using the water is the same as before treatment, except for the dishwasher - basically unusable... If your hardness is no more than moderate and you handwash dishes this may be acceptable for you.

It is not the water system. You need to use Cascade Platinum and you will no longer see this film. It's the hard water in the desert, but it will go away if you use the right product! Good luck!

Will 10 gpm be enough for a 1600+ sq. ft. house?

Depends on family size and number of bathrooms. I have 2 baths and 1680 sq. ft. house, but only 2 adults and no children. 10 gpm is plenty for us.

does it whiten your laundry and make water hotter and save water in home

Asked by tony August 28, 2016

Answers

Not sure about the laundry, but it won't make water hotter but will increase the life of your hot water heater and furnace, just remember to open the drain periodically and check for any buildup.

How to determine whether to get the 10 gpm or the 15gpm unit ?

Asked by JAG July 7, 2019
2
Answers

Well I believe the way to determine is by how many bathrooms you have. But we took ours out because it left powdery residue on dishes, glasses, We even bought a new dishwasher thinking it was that. But the residue left in the tub took major scrubbing also, so we should have realized it wasn't the dishwasher. We would not recommend this product. Thankfully HD gave us a full refund after having it installed in the house for 4 months.

All systems are in place. We have yet to experience the wow factor but know it's got to be better for us and our appliances. Still waiting on the pipes to be wrapped.

NaturSoft self-install
Customer review from pelicanwater.com logo
Great until, already notice the difference in water quality! Unit designed with 1” male or female pipe threaded connections on the main tank and pre-filter. Would like to have seen the same exact connections on both parts, which would have simplified a self-install, or including the adapters to reduce system to 3/4 pipe thread. But overall a great system for the price and have been enjoying the benefits of a soft water system.

Awaiting the benefits!
Customer review from pelicanwater.com logo
The install was not too bad (installed it myself!). Now I’m waiting to see if I notice any difference over the next couple of weeks. I’m hoping to have less calcium buildup around faucets, clearer glass shower doors and dishes. I ordered the install kit. It did make the install easier. I added a bypass valve just in case something goes wrong or major maintenance is required. Overall, I’m happy with the system and would recommend it to family and friends, and a neighbor too!

It is easy to install and doesn't take more space like the salt softener I used to have before. The water looks more cleaner and tests better than it was looking and testing when we were using the other softener with salt.

Salt Free Water Softener
Customer review from pelicanwater.com logo
Wonderful product! This is the second Pelican Salt Free water softener that I have owned. My first was in my previous home when I moved in and I loved it! There was no slick feeling of not getting all of the shampoo out of my hair or all of the soap off of my body as with salt systems. I loved it so much that I bought another one for the house I am having built. An added plus is that it is earth friendly.

Peace of mind.

We built a new custom home and decided to put in a Pelican whole house water filter and salt free, softener. It gives us reassurance that the water will be clean and mineral free to make all of our new appliances last years longer.
