Benefits of the Pelican 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. Our Salt-Free Water Softener Alternative can give you the conditioned water you desire without the slippery feeling. For the best results, Pentair recommends that you test your water hardness level using the Pentair 16-Point Rapid Water Test before purchasing a salt-free softener alternative, to be sure the NaturSoft 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
  • Durable stainless steel design
  • DVGW certified to be 99.6% effective at reducing hard water effects
