Will a 240V water heater operate normally with a 120V 208V service coming off a three phase transformer?

yes, they are purley resistive. The wires would draw more current in order to put out the same amount of power. Dont hook it up off of 208 unless the manufacter says you can.

The main supply will first come from the power company to a transformer to reduce the voltage then from the transformer to the weatherhead then through the house meter to the main disconnect on the outside of building then to the switchgears main. The cable coming from the transformer to the meter and to the top of the main disconnect is the Main service cable
