Last week we received a call from a woman, in the Des Moines, Iowa area, about needing a water softener for her new tankless water heater she had purchased. We briefly mentioned the energy savings of a tankless heater in a previous blog in April, in honor of Earth Day, which is April 22nd.
There is more information to pass on to you about the importance of soft water and a tankless heater. According to a study done at the Battelle Memorial Institute they found that tankless water heaters will completely fail to function without softened water after only 1 ½ years with hard water. With softened water the tankless heaters last the full factory rating of 15-years, on average.
You can find the study for this at our link here, if you would like to read more.
See you next week at ‘The Water Blog’!!!
