|In response to Re: Water Heater Element - Flange type gaskets|
There are two kinds of 4 bolt element flanges. One is flat so the gasket with the element would be all you need. The other one has "offset" bolt holes so you need the "hose" type element. You only use one or the other and they are not interchangable between the two types of mountings.
: i just pulled out an old element, cleaned out the
: and ..
: the depth of the area that holds the hose like gasket,
: what is left of the old gasket is also about 7/16 or just a bit less.
: whats wrong ?
