in my bad water. the water heater is american EE123-50h 045dm. the only difficulty is the access hole to lower element.you can't get your fingers
near the element base to hold it straight.. I ended up using a automotive 38 mm deep socket and a screw driver through the 1/2 square hole
to balance the element to start it.It took a lot of time but it is worth it.
This is my second set . The original set lasted me approx. 1 1/2 years but my water heater control package constantly is switching the elements on and off for energy savings. the lower element opened internally so I replaced both.
The original elements would be hissing in 3 weeks so this is the best fix I have found to date.
P.S. the 02963 version started hissing early so I do not recommend their use in hard water.
Installation was more difficult then a straight single/double pass element. Since there is so much more element its quite heavy when all you have to hold onto while you line the threads up is the tiny end, and when that is recessed into a well insulated water filter its even more challenging. You need some patience.
It does exactly what you think it would do compared to a normal element, it heats water up faster, or keeps the water warmer longer. Handy for the long shower taker in your house.
As long as these last at least 5 years, I will buy again.
We used to run out of hot water with our other heating element, but after installing this one, we never seem to have that problem. It works excellent!
This is something even beginner DIYers can do. I just had to flip off the circuit breaker, turn off the water at the top of the heater, and drain the tank with a hose. I had to buy a special socket to remove the old one, which was sold on amazon for less than $10.
The only issue I ran into was trying to get this element screwed on straight. With the way it's curved, the weight distribution makes it tough to screw in. But it's not too tough.
