Will the water revert to its unconditioned state if it sits unused in a water heater during exten...

Asked by sdoceanmike December 14, 2020
1
Answer

When it is in the pipe, under pressure (or not exposed to oxygen) it does not revert. If it was taken out of the plumbing and allowed to sit open, the process would start to revert. It takes approximately 48-72 hours out of the pipes to revert. So if it is sitting in a water heater, it would not revert. Thank you, The Pelican Water Customer Satisfaction Team

How long after installing this unit will it take before I see no water spots on my sink? It’s bee...

Asked by Jay1 January 29, 2020
1
Answer

Salt-based water softeners reduce the hardness of water by replacing the minerals through an ion exchange process that cause hardness in water, like calcium and magnesium. Pelican Water’s NaturSoft Salt-Free Water Softener system, however, neutralizes these minerals so they don’t stick to surfaces, instead of removing them from your water. This is why you still see spotting on your shower curtain. The water spotting that a traditional water softener leaves behind is a salt haze that wipes off very easily and is far less noticeable than spots caused by minerals. The THD-NS6 NaturSoft treatment results in reduced spotting compared to untreated water, but more visible spots than produced by traditional, chemically treated softened water. The NaturSoft mineral spots are much easier to clean than spots from untreated water. You can learn more about the science behind the Pelican NaturSoft salt-free water softener by calling our Retail Help Line at 844-663-3078. Thank you, The Pelican Water Customer Satisfaction Team

Not worth the money, or effort in time to install.
I am writing this review after one year of use. This softener unit does not work well. I just had to clean all of my shower heads from alkali build up, which never happened when I had my softener unit that was a salt add unit. This salt free unit cannot hold a candle to the salt add units. Lesson learned. The salt add units may be more maintenance but they are more efficient. Save your money. These salt free units are not perfected yet.

Easy to install, recommend getting the installation kit too--the flexible piping is well made and makes the placement of the filter and system more flexible to your situation. After 2 days my wife felt a difference with her hair and skin. Also we bleached the showers and toilets, and after 2 weeks still no pink showing up, so that is a first (usually every 4-5 days pink would start appearing). Having the no-salt system is a bonus as it doesn't add sodium to the water and no slimy feeling-and nothing to buy over the years. The sediment filter will last a long time, especially if you have public and not well water. So the 4-pack I got too should last 8 years.

Please rest assure that Pelican is not allowed to sell or offer any used system at all to Home Depot or anyone else. All the systems are built brand new. It sounds like the tank may have gotten damaged during shipping. Please contact the Pelican Customer service department 877-842-1635 and press option 1 for assistance.

The water conditioner was very easy to install because I also purchased the installation kit. We are very happy. Within a few days we noticed the water was hotter in the shower and the taste of the bathroom water improved (personal subjective observation). Very happy with this purchase.

No Difference Whatsoever
We have had this water softener for a little over 2 months now and it has made absolutely no difference. We decided we wanted a softener after vacationing at a friend's home that had a salt water softener. We noticed a significant difference in our skin and clothes. I had read that salt water softeners wastes water so I was excited to find this one with good reviews. But it's been a huge disappointment. We essentially paid several thousand dollars for a tank to sit in our laundry room. Very disappointing.
