We expect our heat pumps to typically last around 15 years. Naturally, this all comes down to the conditions the heat pump is in, and regular maintenance. We have many heat pumps in the field that have exceeded this expectation and are 20 - 25 years old.
Tankless water heaters operate based on bare wire heating technology. The unit is activated through the flow of water and bare wire heats the water instantly as it flows through the unit.
When a hot water faucet is turned on, a flow sensor in the heater detects that the water is moving and turns on a bank of heating elements or modules. The water passes over the heating modules, usually in series, and exits the heater at the desired temperature. Since tankless water heaters do the entire job of a conventional tank-type water heater in just seconds, they require very high powered heating elements. A collection of sensors and a microprocessor will control the output water temperature to ensure that a precise output temperature is maintain during operation. When the water is turned off, the unit turns off completely and consumes absolutely no power again until a hot water faucet is turned on.
Hard water is water that has high mineral content (in contrast with “soft water”). Hard water is formed when water percolates through deposits of limestone and chalk which are largely made up of calcium and magnesium carbonates. The total water hardness is the sum of the concentrations of Ca2+ and Mg2+ and is usually measured in ppm or parts per million.
Total dissolved solids (TDS) is a measure of the combined content of all inorganic and organic substances contained in a liquid in molecular, ionized or micro-granular suspended form. TDS, like hardness is also measured in parts per million. Hardness is usually a subset of TDS.

Water Softeners only treat the calcium and magnesium content in the water reducing it to a tolerable limit. It does not treat the bacteria and other microbiological contamination in water that must be treated for the water to be potable – allowed for drinking.
