Short-term exposure to drinking water with a nitrate level at or just above the health standard of 10 mg/l nitrate-N is a potential health problem primarily for infants.

Nitrate in groundwater originates primarily from fertilizers, septic systems, and manure storage or spreading operations. Fertilizer nitrogen that is not taken up by plants, volatilized, or carried away by surface runoff leaches to the groundwater in the form of nitrate.

As advertised

System continues to work well, and as advertised. We change our sediment filter every 6 to 9 months, and changed the charcoal at about 3 years. Our system treats all domestic water, and our landscape irrigation emitters. Significant reduction in scale at faucets at landscape emitters. The other day we had guests at our home, and I parked my car in front of a neighbors house. I was shocked to see the mineral deposits on my car from a bit of irrigation over-spray from their untreated water during the night. No such deposits around our house, at our shower heads, in our coffee pot, or even in our recirculating water-wall fountain. Thank you, Pelican.

Solid sales/customer service

I spoke with Phil on the phone and received helpful information regarding the NS3 and local installers in my area while researching what unit to purchase. I later purchased the NS3 with Phil's assistance and had additional questions quickly answered. Easy, simple process.

Wonderful!!

What a Blessing! On a Saturday afternoon while my plumber is replacing the 2nd heating element at our rental house in 6 months due to heavy sediment {just replaced hot water tank last year & 2 other times in the last 9yrs)--I got online & stumbled on Pelican's website. I called and got "Phil". Thank God!! I explained my situation & he directed me to what system I needed, he is so knowledgeable!! The best part was he recommended the less expensive system, based on our well GPM-instead of upselling me!! Integrity & honesty is so rare these days, & he showed true concern & helpfulness. His knowledge of plumbing, wells & water tables is amazing! He also advised us how to install it over online chat (fittings and all! I am a customer for life. He is saving me so much money in the long run! Thank you Phil, you're a wonderful person-you made my weekend! Lisa Frye

So far, so good

I ordered my NS3 water softening system yesterday, and spoke with Phil. He was extremely helpful and answered all my questions. He gave me his phone extension should I have any problems. He made me feel very confident that I had made a good choice. I expect to receive the equipment next week and am looking forward to enjoying my new water softener. Hopefully there won't be any problems with delivery, installation or performance.

No maintenance

At my age hauling bags of salt is no longer practical. It also saves water since there is no longer any need to back flush the system. For older folks it's great to have a hassle free system!! Bill

Love it!

The water filter system is awesome. The only maintenance required is 1 time every 5 years! Customer service is exceptional. I spoke with Phil who offered to walk me through the replacement of the carbon filter. Doesn't get better than that!

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. If I am on a sodium-restricted diet or suffer from hypertension is there a substitute for salt that I can add to the Pelican?
Yes, You can use potassium chloride instead of salt. The benefit is that you will be adding potassium to your water instead of sodium. Potassium chloride is a more expensive alternative but well worth the cost when weighing the benefits.

Q. What type of salt should I use in the Pelican?
It is recommended that coarse salt be used, which most grocery stores carry in bulk. Block salt should never be used.

Q. Will I notice a pressure loss after installing a Pelican?
With all brands of water softeners there will be a pressure drop. The Pelican PN Series are of the highest quality available on the market therefore the pressure drop will be very low compared to most other brands.

Q. Can the Pelican drain line be drained into my septic system and what type of effect will it have on the drain field?
According to the Water Quality Association Technical Papers concerning septic tanks, etc.: Concerns about salt and soil absorption rates were dispelled. The increased sodium content in the tanks discharge was shown to have no detrimental effect on the soil's ability to absorb water in a normal drain field. Interestingly, certain soil conditions benefited from it. Additionally, when the softener's calcium-rich regeneration backwash emptied into the septic system, the discharge could actually improve the soils percolation the conclusion drawn from these tests is that the softened water is not harmful to a normally operating septic system or drain field.

Q. Can the drain line be located above the softener?
As long as the water pressure at the softener is not less than 40 PSI and the run of the drain line does not exceed 15', your discharge line may be elevated up to 4' above the system. For each additional 10 PSI of water supply the line can be elevated an additional 2'.

Q. Is water with sodium recommended for use on my plants or lawn?
If you are using sodium chloride to regenerate you resin, overtime, softened water could be harmful to your plants and other vegetation. It is recommended that the outside faucets be bypassed from the softener.

Q. How much salt will I have to add to the Pelican PN3?
A typical home with a family of 4 with 2.5 bathrooms and a nitrate level of 10 will require a 32,000 grains system that will regenerate every 11 days. The system uses about 9 lbs of salt per regeneration, so if your brine tank is full (400lbs) from the start, you will not add salt for about 10 months.

Q. Do I need to know what size my plumbing fittings are before I order the Pelican Water Softener?
No, the Pelican System comes complete with 3/4" and 1" copper and CPVC plumbing fittings and also a 50' drain line for your convenience.
