Too long for my water heater, but just cut it by a wood saw. Not a problem. However, spent abt 1 hrs to get rid of sticker residual ! Googled and found nice way to get rid of residue using tape. Otherwise, no complain.

    Not a magnesium anode rod.
    This is not a magnesium anode rod regardless of the product description. The rod is 1/2 inch in diameter and 42 inches long.

        Confusing But Good
        Purchased this online as the ones that were advertised, as being in store, were aluminum not magnesium. Received my order and it had aluminum written on a tag, but it had the small bump on the cap that identifies it as magnesium. Tested it with vinegar and it reacted, as magnesium should. Aluminum will not react to vinegar. All worked out ok.

          Local stock shown in store is wrong
          These show as in stock at local Calgary stores, but what the stores ACTUALLY have in stock for rods is totally different - only Eastman aluminum rods 42 inches long, 1/2 inch diameter, number 091712007708. My Rheem 50 US gal Platinum Performance gas heater with 12 year warranty, comes original with a 34 inch long, 7/8 inch diameter rod. I could have cut off the Eastman rod to 34 inch length to fit. But a 7/8 inch diam rod (the factory original, and which gives it the longer 12 year life) has 3 times the metal mass (and therefore 3 times the in-service lifetime) of a 1/2 inch rod, of equal length. I returned the Eastman rod, and will seek out the correct replacement. Why would I install this shorter life part? Home Depot seems to have some mismatches in the part numbers / inventory database. Note - for most rods you will need a 1 1/16 inch deep socket, and a breaker bar for leverage, to remove the old one, and use some teflon tape when you install the replacement and don't needlessly over-tighten. You're welcome!

            Anode supplied was not correct for AP11526Y-2 part
            I bought this online for pick-up at the local Homedepot. The anode supplied was made of aluminum instead of magnesium. It was also .75 inch diameter instead of .9 inch and was over 40 inches long instead of 34 3/8 inches. All I can say is this is not the correct anode. I have returned it to Homedepot for a refund.

              This has been installed for a little over 3 weeks. So far, everything is good. My hot water would start to smell at about 4 weeks. Time will tell if this resolved the smell problem.
