Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dick Routine maintenance part for me.
It appears that very few people do this maintenance chore to extend the life of the tank and heating elements. The aluminum anode is recommended for the hard water in this area. It is a relatively easy job to change the anode rod in a water heater. The standard length of this rod is now 48 inches; I could have used a longer rod for our water heater.

Not sure that the threaded head was propertly designed for the standard fitting. The threads are slightly too large or don't match the tank opening. I unscrewed the fitting several times to make sure that I was not damaging the threads, but each time I observed a reduction in thread depth due to gouging.
l am a big strong man and I was only able to get about half of the threads into the tank opening before I cried uncle. I have not leaks and no worries. I would do it again!!

In order to install the anode rod you have to first remove the old on with a 1 1/16 socket with either a breaker bar or an air powered impact gun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tom2012 Simple item to change
The items was easy to replace and hopefully will extend the service life of our water heater. This is pretty much a universal fit item that can be cut to size.

I got a tip this would help reduce the sulfur problem in my water. It's been in for 10 days, and it really helped.
