OK. As a test… after the heater has had plenty of time to reheat, see that the meter is spinning, turn off the breaker to the heater, unhook a wire at the heater (on top of the tank) and cap it, turn on the breaker again and check the meter. Is it spinning or no? There may be some other load on the circuit that you don’y know about. If unhooking the wire at the heater slows the meter, I’d check both elements for electrical leaks to ground. There are instructions for how to do this in “Tanklets”. Hope that helps 😉

Yours, Larry
