This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the straw badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will install a new breaker and an electric water heater.  Is heating water on your wood stove getting a little bit annoying in July?  Let's put in a new water heater!

Here's a video of a guy installing one:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - install a new 220V circuit breaker
  - install an electric water heater (tank or on-demand)
  - 220V

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
  - the location where the water heater will go
  - the circuit breaker before you start
  - the work in progress
  - the new water heater installed
  - the finished panel with the new breaker
What's brown and sticky? ... a stick. Or a tiny ad.
