I would call Cheyenne. He builds quite a few and order a lot of 28 inch pots. My own experience suggested to me that a regular session with an infra red laser would tell you if you have issues that would cause it to draw heavily when it shouldn't. That whole area around where the walls meet the floor was always an issue for heat loss as well as the passage brick areas. The elements do seem to have a life span but the 9/18 runs for a long time with no issues. Not so much with the 6/12. The Chinese customs has changed its policies on export making it a greater nuisance to get them.

I stopped using the moly when fuel prices just got too high. The electric is indeed far safer but it's so nice to use gas and make nice color again.
