Pelican water softener is one of the trusted water treatment systems you can count on.
The Pelican water softener is well known as a salt-free water softener that naturally softens hard water without salt but still the brand has Pelican Advantage Series Salt Water Softener which most people don’t know about it.
This system requires no salt or electricity for it to operate. What it does the system is designed on the NaturSoft Template Induced Crystallization Media (T.I.C).
The presence of NaturSoft Template Induced Crystallization Media in your hard water allows the water to start forming calcium carbonate crystals. Meaning the hard water grains become crystallized so the presence of the mineral in your hard water is not removed and no chemical is added in your water.
The crystal work as the media itself and lack an electric charge.
The crystals that are created by the T.I.C media are released down in the water where they serve as a template like seed shape/crystals.
Since the crystal lack an electric charge they flow suspended through the water and cannot attach themselves to the plumbing surfaces but carried along with water.
The crystals help absorbs additional calcium that would form scale returning hard water to a neutral state.

Water hardness level you want to remove
This is not something to consider when you are buying the NaturSoft Salt-Free Water Softener System.
When using the NaturSoft Salt-Free Water Softener System the water hardness level will not change since the system does not remove them from water. It neutralizes hard minerals instead of removing them.
Since the minerals are neutralized they are converted to a crystallized form which does not form scale on to the home appliance.
If you decided to buy pelican salt-based water softener you must consider water hardness/grain level.
The grain level is a mineral that makes your water hard. A salt-based water softener is categorized according to how many grains it will remove in the hard water. Make sure the water softener you choose is capable to remove the hardness level you want.
When water passes through the water softener system more process takes place this can reduce the flow rate, therefore, less gallon per minute treated.
Chose a model that will provide enough water throughout for your family.
