Water Softener and Filtration System Installation
Like most places in the United States, homes in Coachella Valley receive moderately hard water that causes the build up of mineral scale in pipes, water heaters and other appliances and shower heads. The minerals in hard water also make soaps, shampoos, and detergents less effective and leave spots on glasses. If you’ve noticed scratchy laundry or lots of soap scum buildup you probably have untreated hard water.
Our water sources vary from city to city and even from month so hardness, taste, and other characteristics can vary. In many cases water comes from river sources, and most is treated with chlorine, chloramines, and ammonia.

Let’s Be Clear
Everyone wants clear, sparkling, and healthy water for showering, cooking, and drinking. That’s why so many homes in the area have water softeners plus a “reverse osmosis” (RO) water purifier at the kitchen sink. That RO provides water on par with the best bottled water, with extra convenience and major cost savings.
The terms “water softener” and “whole house water filter” are often used interchangeably, so let’s take a moment for some clarification.
A water softener is a device that removes the minerals calcium and magnesium from the home’s water supply to minimize the build up of scale and maximize the effectiveness of showering, bathing, doing laundry, and washing dishes. Technically a water filter simply screens out bits of sand and tiny particulates. In most locations that’s done before the water ever reaches your home, and the term whole-house water filter is used for a wide variety of other purification technologies. Some treat very specific problems such as excess iron, sulfur, or fluoride.
Why Whole House Water Filtering Systems?
Beyond water softening, further treating all the water in your home offers several benefits. You’ll be providing pure water to all of your sinks, appliances, showers, and tubs. Chlorine taste and smell, and it’s effects on your skin, hair, and clothes will be gone as will harmful metals. You have the equivalent of clean and clear spring water for each and every type of usage. If you’re in a rural area with your own well or poor-quality service, there are potentially very significant health benefits as well.

Pelican Carbon Series
This treatment system is the ultimate for pure water throughout the home, and uses a 4-step process.
- First, a sediment filter removes as small as 5 millionths of an inch.
- Next, 2-stage activated carbon filter adsorbs chemicals such as chlorine, chloramines, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial solvents, zinc, copper, mercury, cadmium, and other contaminants. That’s the same technology used in leading-brand faucet and pitcher purifiers.
- Finally copper and zinc “oxidation media” greatly reduces the potential for bacterial and algae.
- There’s no backwash (for some significant water savings), no moving parts (for low maintenance), and no electricity.
- Each system has a 5-year performance warranty. After that, we can replace the filter media for another 5 years of service, on through the lifetime limited warranty.
