Q & A: Are tankless water heaters better for hard water areas?

Question by laser381: Are tankless water heaters better for hard water areas?
I live in an area with very hard water, and have had to replace two water heaters in 6 years due to sediment buildup. Would I be better off with a tankless water heater, or would that succumb to buildup, too? Thanks.

The prob is hardness in the water . Anything that heats water will collect minerals from the water on the heating surfaces that get hot. The only cure is to put in a water softner. But thay take a lot of mantainance also.
