    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.
