Question and Answers

Q:

Can you tell me how to hook up my electric water heater so that the elements operate simultaneously?

A:

Water heaters are not designed for the elements to work at the same time. The load created would be too much for the wires and breaker, creating a hazardous condition. You can install the 4500 watt elements, if the wiring and breakers connected to it now, are large enough to handle the extra load. I suggest checking with an electrician first. Connecting elements so they come on simultaneously is not recommended.
