You are not the first one this has happened to, and won't be the last. several years ago, I helped my brother change his water heater in a mobile home. He went from a small 110v one to a larger 220v one. We did the same thing. The thing was that they were out of hot water for a day because of it. Or should I say his wife was. He and I were in hot water for some time over that. LOL

Glad it worked out for you, It was kind of handy having an electrician close by I think most everyone had already figured that it was a voltage problem from the way you had described it but it really is dangerous to try and trouble shoot a problem like this without being there to see it first hand. With most problems someone can be walked through the process but when dealing with electrical power it is just too dangerous IMO to try to do this from afar and I will always try and discourage it. This does not mean that I think that not everyone can properly do electrical work it is just that with electrical power being as unforgiving as it is there is a lot to learn first and just jumping into it with help only from someone who is not there to observe is definitely not the thing to do since it is easy to damage equipment, damage wiring, start a fire or get hurt.

Now that you have it going , if you need help with plumbing or any other problems you may encounter setting up your system we should be able to help you out.
