Thanks Guy !
These elements are for potable hot water heaters. I don't know if there is a zinc coating or not, but if there is, I doubt it would cause a health risk. The daily recommended dosage of Zinc is 15mg. It didn't take much more than that to plate that element and the coating will last for years.

Rotate the output upward so the air bubbles have an escape route...

The drawing is for illustration purposes only. I agree with you, and hope that if implemented the user will realize that.

What did all that stainless cost you? I make them out of copper for $50 or $60 in material. I can't imagine what the stainless would have cost!!

Consider me dumb as a stump.

Dang it, you guys are just going to get me in deeper and deeper, arent you?!? Not that I am complaining...

Great post!! I am going to get this project underway once I am in a house and not an apartment (October cannot get here soon enough!)

Look at the bottom of Post #1. I have the prices listed there. It was not that expensive.

Any benefits/issues with rigging up two of these in-line for other use such as heating HLT or bringing wort up to boil temp faster?
