How do I prevent salt buildup around my hot water heater?
I have a 52 gallon electric hot water heater and it sits next to a Kenmore water softener. I have noticed that crusty, yellowish-orangish-whitish crust is building up around the base of the hot water heater. What causes this and how do I stop it from happening? Green hose is overflow from softener and terminates in a drain. Help!
Softener to left, water heater to right
