I use two water filters, the on board, and an exterior unit. Change the filters twice a season (may be overkill).
As far as the hot water annode I change mine at the start of each season, and flush the tank at least twice during the season. The cost of a new annode, $20., is a small price for the insurance.

At one year old my 378 had the same problem, mine was limited to plugging the toilet intake. I removed the anode rod and it was really corroded. If you didn't know, the water to flush the toilet comes from the hot water tank, at least on the 378. I flushed it with one of the nozzles as described above, and after about 10 minutes the debris stopped coming out. I cleaned the toilet intake and water line, then blew the line out back into the hot water heater. Then I flushed the tank.

I will now drain the tank every six months or so and keep a check on the anode rod, perhaps it will not happen again.

The line for flush water for the toilet may split off from the line going into the waterheater but it certainly does not come from the waterheater outlet. I ran it for a full three minutes and no hot water flowed into the toilet bowl.

Yea, that blew my circuits, too.
There are blue (cold) water lines going to the toilet not red (hot).
