Heavy-duty, 120-volt 2,000-watt heating element for heating and heat recovery. Gets up to temperature faster than any other brand as ours has a lid with handle to keep the heat in, along with powerful Stainless steel heating elements and heavy-duty electronics. This 120-volt model needs to run on a dedicated 20-amp breaker with nothing else on it. Will take 40 minutes to 1 hour to get to 145 degrees depending on your starting water and outside temp. Again, needs to be a 20-amp breaker with no other items running on the same breaker as this takes over 2,000 watts (19 amps) to run.
