Product Details

Anode rods are the most important line of defense in increasing water heater tank life and preventing leaks. These devices work because the metal in the rod is sacrificed so the tank does not corrode. The anode should be checked and replaced every couple of years. This Everbilt 3/4 in. NPT X 42 in. 3-Section Aluminum Anode Rod features 3-section flexibility for easy installation.
  • Fits many brands of water heaters (sold separately)
  • Helps prolong the life of your water heater (sold separately)

  • 3-section flexibility
  • 3/4 in. NPT fitting
  • 1 year limited warranty

  • Aluminum anodes help reduce odors in water

          Just now got it installed...
          Picked it up locally this morning; they had four in stock. My heater is a 3 yo. (to the day) A.O.Smith 40 gallon electric, had to use a 1/2" impact driver (rated for 600lb·ft) to remove the old anode; which was shot. There's no way I could have gotten it out by myself without the impact driver which took 4-5 seconds to break it loose--no sign of sealant or tape on the old threads, they just made it "Guttentight" to prevent leaking. Time will tell as to how it performs.

            Good to be able to find this replacement
            Seems to fit my 6 yo rheem water heater. You can make a water heater last forever if you replace anode rod before it is gone and tank then rusts.

            Replaced the anode rod in my water heater and this one was a bit longer than the recommended one so it was cut to the length needed and works great

            I installed one of these previously and just checked it after almost four years. It seems to be doing its job. No issues. I like that it is bendable to ease installation in tight spaces.

            Comes in 3 sections. It was too long so it's easy to break off a section, but if it had 4 sections it would have been closer to the original length. Just like the original it is a 1-1/16 nut. You really need the socket for it since the old one is buried down. Made a mistake and waited a while after draining the top section of the hot water heater. Resulted in the top cooling down while the old anode stayed hot - so the old one was REALLY tight. Thank goodness for cheaters.

            Hex Cap broke free anode on bottom of tank
            I bought one of these this spring for my house since I had limited space and it worked fine. Today I went to replace my mothers with another one. I installed it without having to bend or flex it, but decided to remove it to flush the tank. WHen I did, the hex cap came off and the rod is somewhere in the bottom of the tank.

              In rod we trust
              You're gonna need one of these if your water heater gets on in years. It sure is cheaper to replace the rod than the whole heater, of course. The old one was difficult to remove — get a friend, a long socket wrench and a length of sturdy pipe to fit over the socket wrench.

              The Everbolt was a easy install and hopefully will do the job on minimizing smell and clean water. Will see how it last.
