Everything You Need to Know About Our New NFC Functionality


Unless you work in the tech industry or live in the UK you probably don’t know what the acronym NFC stands for. In fact, even if you live in the UK you likely have no idea what we’re referring to, so let’s provide context: NFC, or Near Field Communication, is an emerging technology that allows devices equipped with the technology to interact with other NFC-enabled devices nearby.

Not many applications for this technology have breached the mainstream, but the benefits provided by it are hard to overstate. Let’s circle back to the UK for a good example – there, most debit and credit cards have three curvy lines that allow users to make contactless payments merely by placing their form of payment close to the payment processor. That’s the power of NFC at work.

NFC isn’t only for contactless payments — smartphones and other devices can transfer data and information to each other with a simple tap. We at Pelican Water have long recognized the potential of this exciting technology, and have been hard at work incorporating NFC functionality into our best-selling Smart Combo™ Whole House Filter and Salt-Free Water Softener.

What Does NFC Functionality Do?

NFC functionality will provide proud owners of a Smart Combo™ system like you complete control over every aspect of installation and maintenance all from the convenience of your smartphone. By scanning the product sticker located on your filter and softener combo system you will connect your smartphone with your particular unit. From that point you can easily access important product information and maintenance reminders, increasing the overall longevity of your Pelican Water system.

Here are just some of the Pelican Water resources you can access via NFC:

  • Up-to-date installation manuals for customers who prefer the DIY approach
  • Schedules for routine maintenance of your specific system
  • FAQs to get quick help for your filter and softener

In order to use NFC you don’t need to use Wi-Fi, LTE, or 3G — your smartphone will wirelessly connect all on its own once you are within the NFC field. You don’t have to pay anything for this service, as NFC technology is incorporated into most modern smartphones. In a few taps you can access everything you need to keep your filter and softener operational.

The integration of NFC technology with the Smart Combo™ system from Pelican Water will improve the overall performance of the filter and softener, allowing it to last even longer. Did we mention that Pelican Water is the only water filtration expert who will have this technology on the market for use with a whole house water filtration and softening system? It’s true!
