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.

3/4 in. - 14 NPT x 42 in. Long Aluminum Anode Rod is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more sulfur smell. I am thrilled by the results of this anode. The bad sulfur smell with the hot water is gone. As others said it was a bit difficult to get the old one out. I started with a breaker bar and the tank just turned. I barrowed an electric impact wrench and it zipped the old rod out with no effort. I had to disconnect the lines and tip the tank over to get the old rod out and put the new one in since it is in the basement with low ceilings.

Installed it couple weeks ago (1st week of August 2017). Easily installed and worked well after cleaning & flushing hot tank. Yah, no more smelling even just a bit smelling before. would add one more star if no more smell in the next 3.5 year.

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.
