Benefits of the Pelican Salt-Free Water Softener Alternatives + UV Combo Systems
85% of Americans have hard water1. Negative effects of hard water include etching and scale buildup on water-using appliances, dry skin, dull and brittle hair, premature damage to water heaters resulting from increased scale buildup, among others. The Pelican Salt-Free Water Softener Alternatives + UV Combo Systems resolves all of those problems while adding the peace of mind of UV. We recommend that you test your water for hardness levels 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.

How it works
5 Micron Prefilter System
The prefilter system reduces debris, sand, silt, and sediment in the water supply down to 5 microns in size (20 times smaller than a human hair). The prefilter helps protect plumbing and appliances from excess sediment, increasing their effectiveness. With average use, the prefilter will last approximately 6-9 months before needing to be replaced.
Calcium Carbonate Crystal
The crystals on the media attract dissolved “hard” minerals and initiate crystal growth, removing hardness from the water. The movement of water and friction among the media granules rubbing against each other cause fragments of the newly grown crystal structures to be fragmented off the media and released into the passing water.
UV disinfection does not affect taste, color, or odor of water.
Movement and Friction
The free flowing calcium carbonate crystals from the Salt Free Alternative system continue to travel through the plumbing system as suspended particles which buffer the effects of hard water scaling. This effect is most beneficial when you get to your water heater. When heated the waters scale potential increases and the seed crystals absorb the additional calcium that would otherwise form scale.

Frequently Asked Questions
What model is right for me?
The NS3-PUV-7-P is ideal for homes that have 1 to 3 bathrooms and standard water usage. The NS3-PUV-14-P is the right choice for homes with 4 to 6 bathrooms and typical water usage.
How does the Water Softener Alternative not create wastewater?
The up-flow design means there are no moving parts in this system. This design eliminates backwashing, so no wastewater needs to be flushed or an electronic head.
