Hey guys, I have a Eagle Signal Timer for sale. I bought 2 off of ebay and only need one. I thought I was getting 1 but I missed the part where it said "lot of 2". It's used and I will sell it for $50 used. Retail $161.

Back to the subject of heating elements.

Check out this Rheem stainless steel heating element that is 120v, 2000 watts, LWD.

What do you think of this, will this work? This seems to be the cats meow. I have been searching and search and couldn't find anything 120v LWD.

Might give plumbingsupply.com a phone call. IIRC, the ELD 120vac element is incoloy.

So the base is stainless steel? If so, very nice.

I'm just wondering if 2000 watts is to much for a RIMS tube.

2000watts should not be a problem for a RIMS tube (obviously you will need temp control)... I use a 1500watt element simply so I can run it, if needed, on a 15amp circuit. 2000watts will require a 20 amp circuit.
