Did you get a tankless hot water heater in your new house? Thinking about putting one in? Live in San Antonio or surrounding area? We suggest putting a water softener in to help protect your new investment. Tankless water heaters are expensive and special care must be taken to protect them. San Antonio and surrounding areas have some of the hardest water in the United States. The average is 17.5 GPG hard.
Limescale build up has bad effects on a tank-less 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. Read your warranty.
