OK, I think that's where we diverged.

77F = 25C
167F = 75C
75C-25C = 50C

So, for a 20 gallon boiler, which I expect to fill half full of wash,
4kw in heating elements to get up to runable temerature (and then
expet to run at 1 kw) isn't outlandish?
• Right. the issue is that the subtraction should be done in kelvin, making your 50C number correct. F is such a screwy scale. My bad... Paul
