Will your tank work with the Sun Bandit SB 1200-B?
The Ohms of your tank's element needs to fall within the range of 12-58 ohm.
Here is how you can check the element:
Voltage squared divided by wattage.
For example: If you have a 3,000W 240VAC element.
240VAC X 240VAC = 57,600
57,600 Divided by 3,000W = 19.2 ohm so this is compatible.
