"How much will a Salt-Free Water Softener save your Family?"

Pelican Water is proud to introduce an online lifetime cost of ownership calculator that can be used to easily and effectively illustrate the real-life costs of purchasing and maintaining a salt-free water softener as opposed to a salt-based system.

The online calculator allows consumers to compare the costs of purchase, operation, and installation of salt-free softeners against salt-based softeners side-by-side. In order to determine initial savings, the dynamic calculator takes into account the number of bathrooms in the house, number of people in the household, and the type of installation that will be used—DIY or professional. Pelican Water makes it easy to install the salt-free softener DIY, which saves over $1,000 compared to the required professional installation for salt-based softeners.

Once the initial savings are calculated, the reader can explore how much a salt-free softener saves over the lifespan of the unit. These savings are based on annual operating costs, replacement filters, and the costly RO system that is required when using a salt-based softener. The results are staggering, with the Pelican salt-free softener saving consumers close to $700 annually. In most cases, the Pelican system will pay for itself in less than one year of ownership.

The calculator also provides a glimpse into the eco-friendly aspects of the salt-free softener. Salt-based softeners annually waste 7,800 gallons of water, discharging salt brine into local ecosystems. This has prompted certain municipalities to ban the use of salt-based softeners. The Pelican salt-free softener wastes no water, which saves hundreds of thousands of gallons over the lifetime of the unit and is truly a green product as it consumes no electricity unlike traditional salt-based softeners.

With 89% of American homes being serviced with hard water, it is no surprise that water softeners remain an item of great interest in the consumer market. Pelican Water is dedicated to producing the highest quality eco-friendly water systems, and the lifetime cost of ownership calculator provides a strong example of how Pelican Water is making a difference.
