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.

Impeccable Service

I am very impress with the level of service and knowledge, as well as the willingness to spend time answering all my questions with such valuable information. I appreciate knowing that it is not necessary to have a plumber reinstall the carbon media which will save hundreds of dollars. Thank you once again.

Amazing Product and Service

I recently discovered that the water in my house is extremely hard and was the cause of significant damage to appliances as well as staining of fixtures, basins, and dishes. I contacted Pelican Water and spoke with Patrick who helped me understand everything I needed to know about hard water and how the NaturSoft system works. After researching different types of water softeners I came to the conclusion that the NaturSoft best fit what I wanted. I wanted a system that softened my water without adding salt or potassium to the water, that required limited ongoing maintenance and expense (only requires a pre-filter change every 6-9 months), that left beneficial minerals in the water, that did not waste water, and that helps reverse the damage caused by hard water. I installed the NaturSoft and immediately noticed that the sink basins I had to regularly clean with vinegar and baking soda to remove hard water stains actually stay clean now! Within a few days of installing the NaturSoft I could see a significant amount of scale buildup dissolving in my dishwasher and the buildup continues to dissolve as time goes on. The water in my house feels and tastes the same as it did before installing the NaturSoft yet I no longer have a problem with mineral scale. It is also worth noting that I have no previous plumbing experience and the NaturSoft was simple and inexpensive to install myself. I had to do some online research to understand how the plumbing in my house works but after I read and learned a bit I was able to get the NaturSoft working without any problems; it took me less than two hours to install the NaturSoft which I think is pretty good for a first-time plumber. Thank you Pelican for helping me solve a big problem simply and affordably! A special thanks to Patrick for answering so many questions, being so responsive, and for all of your help.

Top Quality Whole House System

We purchased Pelican Whole House Water System on Oct 26,2010 & have been very satisfied with the system. We are on a community well & needed it to remove water hardness & chlorides. It has met our expectations for 4 yrs of usage. Highly recommend.

me and my dogs are happy

I'm a real skeptic because of deals gone bad but the pelican made me a believer. I' m on a well and when I bought the house there was yellow iron marks in the tub. Gone. The water is so soft and clean my dogs and I can't get enough. The well is spring fed so my water tastes better than bought water. Sometimes I just stand under the shower with my mouth open and take it all in. Changing the filter is easy and no drain or electric is a real bonus. I give a real thumbs up to Pelican.

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.
