Pelican Water has revealed the results of a new scientific study into the performance of various salt-free water softener systems. The findings confirm the leading performance of Pelican Water’s NaturSoft system, which is DVGW-certified to prevent 99.6 percent of scale.

Pelican Water released the findings of a new research study that compared the effectiveness of various salt-free water softener systems, including Pelican Water’s own NaturSoft water softening granules. The scientific study—designed to test the legitimacy of performance claims from other salt-free water softener manufacturers—was conducted at the Technologie Zentrum in Mainstockheim, Germany from March to June 2014. The study used verifiable scientific methodologies representing annual water usage by a family of four.

The research concluded that other salt-free water softeners do not offer the same level of performance as Pelican Water’s NaturSoft system, which proved 99.6 percent effective in reducing hard water scale. The NaturSoft system is the only salt-free water softener that has been certified 99.6 percent effective by the DVGW, which is Europe’s top water industry certification association. The NaturSoft system offers this unparalleled level of performance with a natural process, which uses micro crystals that bond with scale-forming calcium to create more micro crystals; this bonding process continues until all of the calcium present in the water has been neutralized, thus leaving the water softened.

According to the United States Geological Survey, over 89 percent of American households have hard water, or water with a high mineral content. This water can cause corrosion and scale buildup in appliances that use water; these developments can reduce efficiency, create premature wear, and ultimately generate unnecessary utility or repair expenses for homeowners or renters. Hard water can be softened with inefficient salt-based softeners, which replace minerals such as calcium and magnesium with sodium, resulting in water that feels slick and is entirely free of minerals. Salt-free water softening systems provide a more eco-friendly solution by using a low-maintenance and chemical-free process to neutralize hard water minerals without actually removing them from the water. Pelican Water’s NaturSoft system offers various benefits over old technology salt-based water softeners, such as the elimination of waste water, the ability to function without electricity, and the production of natural-feeling water that is healthier to drink. Additionally, the system’s leading performance ensures that renters and homeowners get the best results currently available from a salt-free water softener system.
