Since you have a temp gun, verify the lower thermostat cycles off at set point. First thing in the morning before using any hot water use the temp gun on the tank at both thermostats. If both readings are the same and well above set point, you likely have a leaking (electricity) bottom element. If just the top reading is high, you likely have a leaking (electricity) top element.
