Flexible Hex-Head
Aluminum/Zinc Anode Rod

U.S. SALES ONLY

Overview and closeup of flexible hex-head aluminum/zinc anode rod

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

  • a segmented, hex-head aluminum/zinc anode rod (about 12 inches of overhead clearance needed). This anode is .75-inch-diameter by 44 inches long.
  • pipe-thread seal tape
  • service sticker
  • instructions

This replaces the anode that came with your tank. Fits all brands. It is 44 inches long but can be cut or segments broken off to fit shorter water heaters.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

  • The anode will keep your tank from rusting and breaking, while reducing or eliminating odor problems because of anaerobic bacteria found in some water that react with regular magnesium or aluminum anodes to produce hydrogen sulfide gas and a rotten-egg odor.
  • The tape will enable you to remove the anode in future to check it.
  • The sticker will help you remember when you installed it.

TOOLS NEEDED

Socket wrench and 1 and 1/16-inch socket.

ORDERING DETAILS

The products offered here are designed to make water heaters last longer, or solve specific problems. Installation is potentially do-it-yourself, but if you have the least doubt about your abilities, we suggest that you obtain expert help.

Remember also that if you have difficulties with installation, odds are that a professional or handyman will know a way to do it.

Prices include shipping is by UPS Ground. Allow up to about a week for delivery.

IMPORTANT: BEFORE YOU ORDER

Are you ordering the right anode? This anode must replace the one that came with the tank or the smell won't go away. Make sure you have a hex-head rod in your tank and not a combo anode.

If you soften your water and have odor, consider a powered anode. The aluminum/zinc anode might not stop the smell. We don't want you to waste your money.
