Default Water Softeners/Filters

Water Softeners. Greetings Neighbors: I am finding the tap water in our neighborhood harsh to drink. I am bringing our Brita Water Filter down to give that a try. Of course I prefer not to live on bottled water our entire time in Florida. So I am writing to ask for any success stories in eliminating the harshness of tap water in our neighborhood. Thanks

Call Nova Water Filters. They will install a 3 stage water filter in your garage and it will make all the difference you want. Their price is the most reasonable of all the water companies. Your entire house will be filtered. For us, the filters last about a year before they need replacing.
352-566-2649

They also offer water softeners if you also want that.

Agree, great systems from Nova, they are not hard sell, very reasonably priced and great customer service. It does make a huge difference in your water.

Pelican Water Systems

Their whole house filtration system was excellent for drinking water.

We had a softener up North, but decided we did not need it here.

Good website

According to their websites, Nova has a whole house filter for $645 and Pelican has a Whole House Filter for $1130. Any reason for the significant discrepancy in prices?

There is a whole topic still going on here on that same subject: Water softener or water filter system?

Possibly because the former is built and sold by a local company mostly locally and the latter is a national brand with a lot more expenses (retail markups for the seller, overhead, distribution, independent installers that have to be paid, advertising, employees, fancier packaging and CEO's that make zillions etc). It's a WATER FILTER and not a rocket ship.

We had a pelican system installed and like it very much. It has a carbon media tank that takes out all chlorine and other tastes and contaminants then a treatment tank that conditions the water so all minerals stay in suspension and do not settle out in the water heater, plug shower heads etc then a sediment filter. There is no salt tablets to mess with , no electric involved and practically no maintenance. The carbon media is good for 6 - 8 years and fairly simple to replace. The treatment media is good for life and the sediment cartridge one year , only about $20 and simple to replace. We are only here 6 months a year so 12-16 years for the carbon and 2 years for the sediment cartridge. The water quality and taste is bottled water quality and no salt in the water.

Water softener requirements depends on where you live, south of 44 you may want one
Nova installs both

I meant to add a photo of the Pelican system. As you can see it takes up very little room.

We drink the filtered water that comes out of our refrigerator door. It runs through a filter. Just make sure you change out the filter when it prompts you. It’s as good as a whole house filter when it comes to taste of your water, and a lot less expensive.

We have the Nova system and the water tastes great!
Before the system was installedI I had a hard time combing my long hair after showering and now the comb just glides right thru!!!

Because Pelican is a ripoff. Nova uses excellent quality products. Go with them.
