How Does A Softener Work? back to top

There Are 3 Important Steps To Softening

  1. Backwashing Phase: This removes dirt from the mineral tank and is part of the regeneration process
  2. Regeneration Phase: The mineral tank is recharged with sodium from the brine tank solution and displaces calcium and magnesium, which is then washed down the drain during the Backwashing Phase.
  3. Rinse Phase: The mineral tank is rinsed with fresh water and loads the brine tank so that it is ready for the next cycle.

As water passes through the mineral tank, the positively charged calcium and magnesium ions are lost to negatively charged plastic beads. The brine tank holds a solution of water and salt that will flush the mineral tank and replace the calcium and magnesium ions with sodium. Recharging cycles are controlled by the meter on the top of the tank (normally once every 7 days).

The best

I have had my salt less softener for two years now. Best money I have ever spent. I have a black Corvette that I could not wash at my house because of white spots left on my car. I can now wash my car home. Also my three toilet tanks are as clean as when they were new. Taking a shower is a whole did decent experience. It so refreshing to take a shower. Overall it's the best thing since sliced bread. I have recommended this to four friends who bought them and they say the same thing. NICE JOB PELICAN

A 3 Year Journey

Pelican friends, In Nov. of 2011 we purchased our first products (PC600 w/5 micron pre-filter & the Trojan UV device) from you. We built our house in 1986 and installed an on site well. After a water test we were told that our water was "slightly" hard and that there was the need for a SpinDown sediment filter. The negative effects were few outside of the toilet reservoirs & dishwasher, and, of course periodically cleaning of the SpinDown. The cost then of doing anything else to our water was way out of reach, especially with a mortgage & children. Fast forward 25 years. Mortgage done and costs very reasonable for improving our water quality. Within a week or so from the installation of the PC 600 the toilet reservoirs (25 yrs of darkness) were completely clear & dishwasher not needing iron out product. In Nov. of 2014 we purchased the NS3 to compliment the whole house filter & UV device. We are already feeling the positive effect on our bathing. We must admit that we are hard to please and slow to commend for a product that has proven to deliver very positive effects on a very important resource to us. Blessings!

Happy Review

We were looking for a whole house water softener/filter system that was able to give us a good quality water. We didn't know about Pelican Water Systems until we found it online and learned about the salt-free combo system. We thought that it was just great to have salt-free water for our entire brand new house. So, we contacted the factory and talked to a guy, Patrick, who gave us all the information we needed. He was very kind and professional and gave us a very good deal and we decided to purchase the product. Now we are looking forward to using and drinking the water that this product will give us.

the whole setup

Hands down the best purchase experience of this whole project. Mark -did a wonderful job answering questions-brain storming -conceptual application -myth buster -open and transparent communication -COMMUNICATION -timely -orgainzed -fun and professional. I seldom find an individual representing a company that has passion and sterwardship. So many projects of mine get shelved because we cant get past "what are you doing with this?" BONE CHAR is also awesome. Oh, and the re-use vs replace with your products hits home... no such thing as "away".

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 Water Softeners?
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 Water Softeners?
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 Water Softener?
With all brands of water softeners there will be a pressure drop. The Pelican Advantage Series Water Softeners 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 Water Softeners drain line be drained into my septic system and what type of affect 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 softened water 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 Water Softener?
A typical home with a family of 4 with 2.5 bathrooms and a hardness of 10 will require a 32,000 grains softener that will regenerate every 11 days. The softener 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 Water Softener System comes complete with ¾" and 1" copper and CPVC plumbing fittings and also a 50' drain line for your convenience.
