Anode life

Ok I know the corrosion is at a normal pace. Mine is a little over a year old. Do I have another season is this one or should I order another? Thanks

You're still good for another year. Maybe two years, even. Replace when it's used up 75%.

Looks like what I found yesterday. I think we're both good to go for another round.

As the anode rod is consumed some of it drops off and forms contamination in the tank. This can clog faucet screens etc. Although you and get another year or so our of some of the photos posted, for the cost of an anode rod and the effort to remove and replace it, I have always replaced them when I removed them and there was any significant depletion. Also when you purchase a replacement rod, always get two. Odds are that you will find you need a replacement and not have one on hand.

It seems to me some of the stuff falls off new anode rods, too... so I don't really think a new rod solves the problem.

X2. The rod is going to lose material at more-or-less the same rate whether it's brand new or not.
