Many electric builds use this power source for a 240V element up to 5500Watts. You just can't run multiple elements at the same time. Also make sure you have GFCI protection.
If you still have the water heater, it might be handy to start strike water at 160 degF instead of 60 degF.
What is the difference between the dryer breaker (its the 30A breaker above the off one) that has "30" only written on one of the two jumped breakers and the off one below it that has "30" written on both of the jumped breakers? and I was hoping 12-14 was 60A total.
I am planning on putting a Spa panel in for GFI...can i just connect it where the old WH wires terminate? There is a dead end junction box there now.
ANd i do not have the water heater amymore but the on demand water heater delivers 100 - 140 degF water whenever I want it.
