I am going to guess it would be more like an hour to get 12 gallons up to boiling temp using only the 3500W - since the theoritical formula is a straight multiplication/division.
That hour seems a reasonable guess since it takes me about 25 minutes to get 6 gallons to boil with a 4000W element

Yea to clarify, when I originally posted, I thought the OP was switching between the two elements, not running both simultaneously for the big 9kw. Hats off to that!
