    Its almost time to replace my traditional water heaters, I am on a well with a water softener and iron removal system. I am trying to figure out the plusses and minuses of a stainless unit(eternal) vs copper(rheem). seems like the heat conductivity of copper is way better, but the corosion issue may come up. Any thoughts?

    thanks
