Great element, works as described. However, do not purchase this for use in a brewing setup. The plating on the element cannot handle acid well and as wort is very acidic, it will break down over time and when the plating comes off it will burn your wort. Took 6 brews to happen to me. And the last 3 brews had a very odd off flavor so I can only assume that the plating was slowing coming off and flavoring the beer. Go with the darker ULTRA low watt density elements.

I'm sure this water heater element should work fine, and as far as heating water goes, it works great. I'm using it to power an all-electric RIMS brewing system and I've been satisfied with it's operation except for one issue - the male threads on the element aren't quite properly machined to fit a 1/2" fitting. I have two other camco elements that are used in the system (a 1500W/120V and a 5500W/240V) that both fit the RIMS tube perfectly but this 4500W element only threads about half-way before getting bound up, preventing the included rubber gasket from creating a leak-proof seal. It was fairly easy to fix with plenty of teflon tape and elbow grease but overall I was disappointed with the improper machining.

Element worked as described, easy installation good price. We have very hard water and they only last about one year. Big cost savings versus lowes/home depot.

Great element for making an electric beer brewing kettle. Brings 5 gallons to a boil in about 15 minutes. I ordered 2 so I'd have one stand-by just in case because the price is so reasonable. Seller delivered in a few days.

You should change out your water heater elements, or at least check them and or clean them at least once every 2 years. This is especially true if you have water with a high calcium level. The hotter you have your thermostat set at, the faster these will fail. When you notice your water not getting as hot or not lasting as long, probably time to check, clean or replace the element. Some heaters have one, some two and I have even seen them with three elements.
USE extreme caution when servicing your unit as you can be burned from the hot water or electrocuted if the breaker is not turned off and checked with a volt meter.
