One of the elements is shorting out.
No, they each need their own breaker of the right amp. Neither of them would cause the breaker to trip if there was a problem.
No, that is perfectly fine as it is an electric heater, However if you had water near the electrical appliance, that would be dangerous.
I would run 10 AWG wire and use a 30 A 240 Volt Breaker.
The part that generates heat... depending if it is a gas / electric heater
A stove is a two pole 50, and hot water heater i would recommend the same.
When you switch on the electric heater, electricity passes through the water in the bucket for warming.If any one comes in contact with the water when the switch is on, he/she is supposed to get electric shock. Nonsense! There are electric heater resistance elements in the water. No electricity is intentionally introduced to the water, if there were the water would be electrified throughout the piping network all the way back to the source including every house connected to the system. Before it ever got that far out of hand the circuit breaker would trip due to the direct short circuit eliminating the hazard. It sounds more like you have an element starting to fail and/or a grounding issue.[
first I would see if there is hot anywhere. if not the problem is with your water heater. if its electric check your breaker or fuse box. if gas call your friendly plumber
The yellow pages under swimming pools. Or if you live in Calif, Nev, Fl, Tx, Az look up IPSSA.Com or IPSSA.inc Do you have a portable spa? Electric heater could be the problem. A gas heater would not trip the breaker. K
Check that there isn't water around the water heater first, which would mean that turning it off and closing the water valve would be a good idea. Then, check the fuse box to see if the power has tripped--that is if it is an electric water heater.
If your having condensation at the bottom of the unit it could be that the bottom element has gone bad and when the cold water comes in and hits the warm tank it is condensating. Also if heating element has gone bad that could be a definite cause for the breaker to keep tripping.
