What’s this about heaters not working without flow?

TacomaToker

I have many heaters in stagnant water and they work perfectly to evenly heat the water to a desired temperature. Why do so many people say you need flow on the heaters?

Mostly so they don't have to work as hard.

Never heard of that.

I suppose the train of thought is it helps disperse the warmer water throughout the tank.
Kind of like if your bath water is getting cool, you turn on hot water and use your hands to swish the water around
