Is it possible I damaged my heating element?
Hi all. Just returned from camping for the weekend. Realized about an hour after I got home I forgot to flip off the electric switch for my hot water heater about an hour after I plugged it in at home. As soon as I realized it, I ran out and turned off the switch, opened up the relief valve and drained out about a SOLO cup full of very hot water. Did I get lucky having that bit of water in there or could I have damaged it? Maybe I won't find out until our next trip. But what I drained was very warm.
