    Here is an easier way to clean the elements. Just remove them and scrub them with white vinegar.

    Does anyone else like this method? Does anyone have any comments? You don't have to buy a pump and recirculate vinegar, you get the heating elements a lot cleaner, it's a lot quicker, and you can see how clean you get the heating elements.

    Elements? The only electric heaters we see around here are single-fixture point-of-use units, and it costs about as much to descale those as it does to replace them.

    It only costs $1.92 for a bottle of white vinegar. You can't replace tankless water heater elements for $1.92.
