Cleaned the tank right out though! On me, the trailer stored next to mine, the driveway, and all over the tool box. Boy, there was a LOT of junk in there. Was
Brushed the threads and wrapped Teflon around the new anode; no leaks, no problems. Still didn't screw in as far, but it was better. Made note to self not to do that again.
