What size wire - electric water heater
I'm installing a 20 gallon electric water heater.
it is .125 volts 1650 watts and there is a 25 foot run
from the water heater to the service panel.
I have a 20 amp breaker.

Rick : Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will do my best to help you with your issue1650 watts at 125 volts will draw 13.2 amps so you will need the 20 amp circuit. You must run 12 gauge wire.
