Customer Questions & Answers

We have a slight sulfur smell from or well, which anode is better, aluminum or magnesium? Thanks Bill

Asked by: billy
The anode rod has little or nothing to do with such odors. The anode rod prolongs the life of the water heater. If you want to remove odors or minerals, try using a filter.

Can this be bent to get into tank with not enough clearance to the ceiling?

Asked by: DIY
Nope. You can cut it shorter (but it will not last as long). There are some rods available in flexible sections. [FYI, The architect, contractor and city inspector all should not have allowed the water heater to be installed in such a small space.]

can this aluminum rod be cut to length

The 3/4 in NPT is right but I'm not sure about the length. The one I removed is 33", but it looks like it has deteriorated in length. The water heater is a 40 gallon electric and the 42" may fit. If the 42 " rod is too long can I cut it to fit or does it have to be sealed with epoxy or something else???
Asked by: joe
Yes, I used a hacksaw to take the last 6 inches off of the rod. Does not change the performance at all.

Asked by: Cop
No, this does not limit how hot your water can get. It only attracts corrosive material in your water heater. It sacrifices itself so your water heater will last longer.

3/4 in. - 14 NPT x 42 in. Long Aluminum Anode Rod is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 28.

Went into my Whirlpool water heater after the old one had served five years and really showed it. Make sure you have good clearance above your water heater to get the one-piece rod in. If you don't have the clearance, look at getting a segmented anode. Item tightened up with no leaks. Make certain you have a 1-1/16 socket head and a good solid breaker-bar to get the old one out and the new one in properly. Having a friend handy to make sure the water heater doesn't move around when you try to get the old rod out might be a good idea too.

Replaced magnesium Anode with this Zinc one due to Sulfur smell in my water. While the rod is out, drain the tank down a few gallons, and put 1-2 cups of Hydrogen Peroxide per each 10 gallons of your hot water tank. Put the new rod in and recharge the tank, the smell was gone in 2-3 minutes and has not come back.

Hardest part on installing this was removing the old rod from the water heater. You'll probably need someone to help hold heater while you try to break it loose with a cheater bar or you'll need to use a impact to get it loose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from IT WORKS FOR ME! I purchased this anode rod for a electric water heater that I purchased from Home Depot about 4 years ago. I live in the northeast and my rod was corroded with only 30% remaining. The problems started with little air coming out of faucet when I turned on the hot water. Then I started getting rusty (hot only) water. I changed the anode rod and within two days the rusty water stopped and within a week the air stopped coming out of the faucet when I turned it on. Its been a month and a half and no rusty or air in the water.
