Tankless water heaters are favored over traditional tank water heaters, but are more prone to mineral build up from hard water because of the large amount of heat generated. With greater temperature, comes greater chance of limescale sedimentation which greatly reduces the efficiency of your water heater. This reduction in efficiency results in more energy costs causing you to waste real dollars. Tankless water heaters are created to perform at high efficiency, but the heating elements are greatly affected by hard water by working against that efficiency.
Prevent tankless water heater build up with a pre-filtration system for water heaters. It works by treating the water before it enters your water heater, removing dissolved solids and preventing limescale accumulation around the walls, heating elements, and bottom of your water heater. Investing in a quality pre-filtration system saves you money in the long run by maintaining the efficiency and extending the life of your water heater.

Siliphos inhibits or binds calcium and magnesium hardness minerals, preventing them from precipitating out of solution and building up on metallic surfaces. Siliphos also forms a thin protective layer on the pipe wall or metallic surface with helps to eliminate hardness build up and corrosion. Average cartridge life is 4 to 6 months.
Pre-filtration is necessary when utiilizing tankless water heaters to prolong the life and efficiency of your equipment. Many tankless water heater manufacturers will void the warranty if the water supply is not pre-treated to eliminate any sedimentation, or scale build up that can damage your equipment.
