      I live on a farm and have bore water thatis rich in calcium.
      My electric hot water system blows elements about every year.
      The calcium is a HARD deposit at the bottom of the HWS vestle.
      It is impossible to remove through the small element hole.
      How do I stop it happening ?
      How do I get rid of it when it does happen ?
      What HWS system is best to buy in this situation ?
      Regards

      An ion exchange water softener will eliminate your hard water scale problem. Even the “best” water heating system on hard water will scale up.
