I found this review from a customer who bought a Whirlpool. Is this safe? Could I do this without re-wiring?
“This is the Best Water Heater, with 2 inches of insulation surrounding the tank. as soon as I got it home I removed both the 4500 watt heating elements and installed two 5500 watt stainless double loop elements and removed the 12 & 14 gauge wire and installed 10 gauge wire with loop terminals soldered onto them..It heats up to 114deg within 25 minutes and maintains hot water even under the most demanding conditions.. I would highly recommend it to anyone..I now have only $330.00 invested in it and is better than the $500.00 water heaters the other store sells…”
