I have a 50 ga. electric water that deveoped a lime build up and shorted out the lower element, no big deal cleaned the heater thoroughley and replaced the element with a name brand element.Six weeks the element goes out again minor lime so reclean, and this time I replaced with a sand hog element which I have never had a problem with.It last three months and shorts out, I have replaced three sand hog elemets all lower in the last nine months. The last one the end of the element was blown off not normal at all, this one has got me stumped, looking for suggestions short of replacing the heater which is in like new condition.
