People who choose premium, choose Pelican!

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.

Note: This product is not certified for the reduction of Nitrates for sale in California.

Great water

We are extremely pleased with our system. Our son had eczema and after installing our system, it has completely gone away and our water feels even nicer on our skin. Would recommend this product to also make sure you have safe drinking water.

Top notch products from a top notch company

I originally purchased a Pelican water system for my house 7 years ago. Pelican Water was the only company to give me an honest assessment as to what I needed, it included the Iron/Manganese filter along with the PC600. Since then I have enjoyed life with clean and safe water. Throughout the years I've replaced parts of the system due to wear and tear, most recently the head on my Iron filter died from a power surge during a storm. Pelican (Trevor from support) pointed me in the best way to get the system running, replacing the head instead of selling me an entire new filter tank and head. Pelican support is GREAT to work with, always having the answers and making sure it is what is best for the customer. Thank you for all of your great products and services!

Awesome

Getting it installed in my complicated basement of my old house required the help of a plumber but it was worth it. We used to have to use vinegar in a jar in the dishwasher to keep a white coating from covering the dishes. Now the dishes come out spotless. I feel there will be so much less buildup in the dishwasher as well as the washing machine. Taste of water without chlorine and whatever white good was in there makes for perfect drinking water. Experienced no decrease of water pressure. Don't have to worry about boil bands when something goes wrong with city water. Sometimes we don't find out about it right away. No more buildup at the faucets and toilet tank. Excellent product. Reviewed every similar product out there and was glad I chose Pelican. Customer service is also a joy to work with as I was trying to decide which model to buy.

fast & helpful

I was tempted to buy the cheaper version of this bulb on Amazon but I'm glad I didn't as many of the reviews made it clear that "you get what you pay for". I also liked the videos on youtube that shows you how to do the intallation step by step. Fast delivery. Pelican does great1

It is working

Dear Sirs, I have been using the system for the last four months, in my country, Bahrain, Arabian Gulf, and I am happy to say that it did work, despite the geographical location, and the difference in climate and water quality from that of the US. Thank you

Pelican tank system

We had 2 Pelican tanks installed in our home before we moved in. Our daughter & family had their system since 2005 and are very pleased with the results. We had 2 tanks installed in 2012. We and our younger daughter, her husband and our 9 year old grandaughter live with us and believe me, my son-in-laws, one a teacher. the other an attorney, research everything. Since we all ordered Pelican, I have to believe it is the best water filter system available, and customer service is excellent.

Happy Customer

Very pleased with my whole house filter system from Pelican and so happy to be rid of all those Poland Spring bottles. Not only too heavy for me as I have rheumatoid arthritis in my hands but also a pain to recycle as they are large and fill up my recycling bin too quickly.

wonders

I was out of our home because of a tornado and during that time I had 4 skin infection. The carbon filtering and Uv filtering system was moved to a Rental house and I have been free of the rashes that led to skin infection. Twice it was in my blood stream. Thanks again. GARY

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.
