    Question tank water heater / softener

    I was always told , with hard water, that a water softener should be installed. I recently visited San Diego, CA where this very subject came up. A plumber there told me that a water softener will reduce the life expectancy of a tank type water heater significantly. Any comments?

    Thank You!

    I've had water softeners for years and my WHs always last longer than the life expectancy stated by the manufacturer.
