When installing a water softener, is it a good idea to replace the water heater too?


When installing a whole house water filter or a water softener, it can make sense to install a new water heater at the same time. When soft water runs through plumbing pipes and water heaters that have scale or hard water build up, the soft water will remove 1 years worth of scale in about a month. While this is certainly a good thing when you purchase a water softener, the scale that it removes is dissolved back into the water, so the water is not as soft as it could be. If their water heater is over 10 years old, many homeowners will have the water heater replaced at the time the water softener is installed. The water heater can usually be installed at lower cost since the plumbers and installers are already on site.
