  • Did you get a tankless hot water heater in your new house?

Before installing a Tankless hot water heaters, we suggest putting a water softener in to help protect your new investment.

The average is 17.5 GPG hard and this is a lot.

Water Levels of Hardness

Limescale build up has bad effects on a tankless hot water heater. Even a small amount of limescale will affect how it operates, costing you more money to operate and will significantly shorten the life of the unit. Many company’s warranties state if water hardness is beyond 10.5 you must have a water softener. Please read your warranty. Without a softener you will need to clean the hot water heater several times a year, with a softener about every three to four years.
