OOPS!

I rather dislike it when that happens.....

I think the socket I tried was a 6 point, if I recall. Definitely was marked 1 1/16 though.

Any chance the water was still hot in the heater, before you attempted this? I'm just spitballing here, and thinking maybe if the heater was hot, the anode rod head metal may be expanded a hair.......and if you put a cold Canadian socket on it, that was the minute difference.

I think he said he used a 27mm socket which is 0.010 too small and not a 1-1/16" socket.

That wasn't the OP who made that statement. The OP (thumperpaul) confirmed he tried a 1 and 1/16th a few posts up in post #12.

If I am understanding correct, the member (Canadiancrew) in post #9 who did use the 27 mm, was successful in it.

Just used a 27mm socket to remove mine with no problem whatsoever. The water in the tank was hot as well. Once drained wrapped the threads in PTFE tape and loosely fitted it back in, ready for next season.

I just checked mine and it's 1 1/16. Tried both six and twelve point sockets. As stated before maybe a burr or something.
