Good morning, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer; my name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

So that I can give you accurate guidance, I need some specific information:

1. What is the make and model of your unvented vessel?
2. How long did the factory installed immersion heater last?
3. What was the make and model of the most recent immersion heater?
4. What length of element did you fit?
