Electric Water Heater

I have a two element water heater, can I adjust the temp down, it's dangerously hot!

Re: Electric Water Heater

Yes you can, just be sure the electric is off first. Set both thermostats to the same temperature. Between 110 and 120 is all most need. There was a time when you need hotter water for dishwashers but the newer ones have a element to boost the water temperature.
