    Water Treatment for Energy 2010 Experience Center

    As we near completion, the “Experience Center” is being provisioned with the most advanced “Green” culinary water filtration and water softener alternative technology/conditioning system available. The Pelican NaturSoft® Combo Series, Model PSE2000 Premium Whole House Water Filter and Water Softener Alternative with Salt Free Technology/Conditioner. The dual tank system which includes a Custom Pelican Carbon Series Whole House Filter and a Pelican NaturSoft® system are being sponsored by WaterfilterUSA.com a division of Pelican Water Systems.

    Problem: Municipal treated water supplies are treated with chlorine and or chloramines which are chemicals designed to kill living organisms. The American Journal of Public Health published a report in 1992 that showed a 15% to 35% increase in certain types of cancer in people who consume chlorinated water.  The National Cancer Institute estimates the cancer risks for people who consume chlorinated water to be up to 93% higher than for people who drink de-chlorinated water. Simply stated chlorine is a pesticide, as defined by the U.S. EPA, whose sole purpose is to kill living organisms.

    Solution: The Pelican Carbon Series System utilizes a combination of high-grade carbon media. This premium system is designed/developed to significantly reduce chlorine, chloramines, sediment and/or particulate matter, tastes, odors and hundreds of other potential chemicals that may be present in your water. This deluxe, high-capacity, virtually maintenance-free system is easily installed in any home and has a 600,000.1,000,000 gal/5-year Performance Guarantee, the best value on any whole house water filtration system in America! A 5-micron pre-filter system is also included with each system to filter out dirt or debris from entering the home.

    Problem: Traditional salt based water softeners, on average, dump 100-300 gallons of heavy salt brine water into septic and sewer systems every time the system backwashes, leaching heavy amounts of sodium into the fresh water supply. Did you know a traditional salt water softener backwashes 3 to 4 times a month wasting and polluting an average of 4800 to 14400 gallons of fresh water every year? Studies have also been linked to high blood pressure among other health issues. Thus some of reason many cities throughout the nation are now banning the installation of these types of salt based systems.

    Solution: The Pelican NaturSoft® Water Softener Alternative with Salt Free Technology/Conditioner uses a granular media that acts as a catalyst reducing the degree of super saturation required to form solid calcium carbonate crystals. By forming these submicron crystals, NaturSoft® removes the excess calcium from solution that would otherwise be the cause for an elevated scale potential. NaturSoft® maintains the holistic nature of the water; it neither adds, nor removes anything from the water. Yet, it provides most of the pertinent benefits that would ordinarily cause users to consider purchasing conventional salt based ion exchange water softeners. The Pelican NaturSoft® based systems do not require water intensive backwashing, electrical energy, salt or any other chemicals to create these benefits. Therefore, Pelican NaturSoft® is one of the “greenest” technologies available today.
