Always like to prepare for the worst cuz that is what usually happens. I know the top element in my 10 year old water heater is gone, and lukewarm showers suck. Due to work hours can not get to until Saturday, as flushing a couple times replacing elements etc can take a few hours. When the element blew, it melted the wiring off of the screw. Since I already had on hand a spare anode and two elements, the right thing to do is go through the process and see if it was a fluke. If the water heater does not respond properly, obvious replacement. I have no problem installing an electric. I have a problem with horrible reviews I read on big box models. I am thinking Marathon for the lifetime tank warranty. As a water heater is always an emergency to address, would appreciate some fast comments.
Thanks as usual!
