Yes it needs a new anode and when you replace it make sure you wash out the water heater tank with a hose a few times.

After washing out the lines with acetic acid, the remaining calcium will gradually disolve back into the water if you are now using a water softner. After a period of time the lines will self clean.

Calcium is brittle.

If you can get to the lines to bend them the calcium will break loose. Check the screens in your faucets, that is the first place to clog. Especially if you break some calcium lose.

Your water pump has a small line on it to winterized your water system, run vinegar thru thou the whole system . make sure to remove all the tap and toilet filters and clean them.. Drain the system before you add the vinegar. GOOD LUCK
