Mineral Deposits in Water Heaters

I have two water heaters. A Whirlpool that I installed in 2011 and a GE "Smart Water" that I installed in 2006.
I flush them every 4 to 6 months. I get almost nothing at all from the GE, but I get LOTS od stuff out of the Whirlpool. Any idea why there is such a difference between the two?

It could be the temperature setting, the hotter the setting the more minerals.
