Benefits of a High Flow Water Softener Alternative 

Hard water minerals – like calcium and magnesium – can wreak havoc throughout your home. Scale buildup in your piping and appliances can reduce their effectiveness, cause dingy and stiff laundry, require expensive fabric softeners, stain your plumbing, and cause spotting on your dishware. If you have high demands on your home water, we have a high flow solution for you. With a Pelican High Flow Water Softener Alternative, you can enjoy the peace of mind of hassle-free, higher quality water throughout your whole home. Pentair recommends that you test your water for hardness levels using our 16-Point Rapid Water Test before purchasing a salt-free softener alternative, to be sure the technology is right for your home water. Other features include:

  • No electricity required to operate
  • Produces zero water waste
  • Comes with a 5 micron prefilter to reduce sediment and debris from your water (only with model #NS1354-P)
