|Review fused element dry fire|
is thinking using the 105 marathon as the primary grid powered and the
50 gallon using a techluck preheat. Im
see how the whole thing will work.
Where have you seen fused elements?
All the consumer marathon come with standard fused upper elements. Its possible to replace with titanium fused upper and I think I will get the titanium for the upper because of the way I use my water heater as an energy battery, the upper does come on a lot. Much more so than in a standard instantaneous grid install.
The only question I have why dry firing a upper element is more prevalent than dry firing a lower. Is it because if the upper element fuse trips on dry fire the lower never gets power and therefore never gets dry fired?
Dry fire is probably big problem at corporate:
|1) Thanks for fused
I think these elements are dry fire 'resistant'
Some of the new electronic water heaters show dry fire elements... but with further reading, they say resistant.
Will keep my eye out for information about this
2) Upper element dry fires.. but lower element rarely does
Because most water heaters are non-simultaneous: the upper thermostat sends power to upper element first, and only after upper part of tank is heated does the upper thermostat switch and send power to lower part of tank
