              does not last
              I purchased the tune up kit 6 months ago and installed it. I am working on my water heater today, and found the elements are decayed so badly, I could not believe it!!! I should have kept my old elements. Do not waste your money like iI did!

                Excellent replacement water heater kit. Just replace both thermostats and elements at the same time to avoid work at a later date. Easy to install after draining the tank. Common sense required working with electricity and plumbing and you’re done!

                Lasted less than one year
                Replaced coils and thermostat with this product. Worked well for about 9 months. Started giving me problems finally pulled everything out and coil is distroyed (see photo). Original GE lasted 7 years. Good thing I saved the old GE parts, reinstalled and works.

                    The 2 heating elements worked fine. If you do not have a socket large enough, buy the tool. It has a hole to place a screwdriver in to loosen the elements. I just used a 18 inch pipe wrench . The problem was that the thermostats did not fit the old water heater. They were to long. Make sure you clean all the sediment ( calcium carbonate ) out of the bottom. You will need a shop vac with a piece of garden hose attached to suck the stuff out.
