Well we will be rolling out a kettle with a custom 1" stainless coupler that is specially designed for an electric water heater element. The coupler is designed so the electric heater element will sit flush against the coupler engaging the o-ring (no more bottoming out on the NPT threads).
Our question is, who is interested? The additional coupler and welding will be a $30-$40 charge. We also plan on welding a stud that can be used as a ground. Any input on this would be appreciated!
