Yeah no way. We had one 6000w element and it took many hours. Like 4-6 hours to get where it needed to be. Our dip area is 2.2 x 1m. About 525 gallons.
Should be noted that we blew through elements... about 1 every 4-6 weeks. Tried all kinds of things w difference wattage and sizes. Ended up going to two 2500 watt elements as long as we could get to fit, and they’re still looking like new after a couple months. This has been an ongoing problem for years. Ask Jim. LOL. I don’t want to jinx myself, but I think we finally got it.
You're all good! And I apologize for the direction the thread went. As an admin, I will be sure to help keep them on track. But Everyone is trying to help in their own way and just attempting to keep you from duplicating the mistakes made by others. As with all forums such as this, it's open to all who comment, good and bad. We do try to monitor it if possible. As the OP, it's inevitable that you will need to wade through some comments to get to the good answers. Stay away from Facebook... it's even worse
