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 Pelican 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 Pelican 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
