For me, it's just not worth the investment right now. I would have to add a 240v GFCI breaker to the box, add an outlet, redo my keggles to take the 5500watt elements, and add controls (which would mean automation, if I do it, I'll do it right).
Probably at least $200, plus the time. Just to trim 20 to 30 minutes off the brew day.
Frankly, my two 2000watt element, manually controlled rig works fine. For now.
