Answer: 
I have spent hours on this problem. After researcher, with my water softener company and REHEEM water heaters...... aluminum, zinc, tin combination is the way to go for an anode rod.The sulfer smell water should be a bad dream. Although the rod should be replaced every year. Kind of pricey but well worth it.

Answer: 
Replacing the magnesium with the aluminum anode should reduce or eliminate the sulfur odor. However, if the odor is coming from the cold water as well as the hot, the sulfur is likely coming from elsewhere.

Here is a way to verify if a rigid rod is OK. I used a 5 foot piece of 1/2" plastic pipe guided into the tank to confirm that there was no interference with the internal heating elements. If you get interference, you can stop the installation. If you can't get the old rod out due to clearance problems around the water heater, you will know during the check-out procedure.

I put this rod into a 50 gallon generic electric water heater. You need lots of torque to remove the old rusted in rod. Clean the tank boss threads with a brush or a gently applied 3/4" pipe tap. I rinsed the threads with water to get a "cleaner than usual plumbing practice" nice thread for the new rod. Read Less

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???

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 21 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Lots of torque needed to remove old rod. I am using a second hand electric water heater tank in a solar water heater. Lucky I removed the old anode and checked. The water heater was much older than the seller claimed and the anode was 98% gone. I had seen excessive rust on the inlet, outlet and pressure relief welded bosses. That was the clue that the anode was eroded and failing to protect the tank. Replacing the anode requires over 200 foot pounds of torque to unscrew the old anode. I used a 1/2 inch breaker bar, 1 1/16" socket, a 5 foot 1" piece of pipe (for leverage on the wrench), a 4 foot long 2x4 (to prevent the tank from spinning), safety glasses and gloves. Clean hole with pipe tap. Use pipe dope on new item. June 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good deal Everything was as decribed but 1 of the rods were bent but we got it straghtened out and it worked. June 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. April 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Resolved the issue with hot water heater Purchased a new water heater for our country house in Alabama. The hot water had a sulfur smell when not used for a short time. Goggled it and the issue is the type of anode in the new heater. I used a impact wrench to remove the old anode and installed the new. Ended up being very simple and solved the problem instantly. I was worried about the size etc and it appears there is a standard. I recommend to anyone with the same issue. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hot Water tank replacement Anode Rod Sufficient headroom above tank to remove and insert new Anode rod, air impact wrench and 1 1/16" socket, thread sealant and new anode rod installed. Good quality, great price. December 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. November 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fast shipping great price, works perfect Works perfectly, had to cut to length, tape threads and install, threads were a perfect match, no issues installing, Got rid of the rotten egg smell. September 26, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sacrificial anode installs easily and extends the life of my water heater A good product at an excellent price. Easily installed. June 10, 2015
