Before you remove the anode rod from the water heater make sure the water is NOT hot. Open the relief valve to remove pressure in the tank and remove the anode rod, stand back or it will give you a unexpected bath. The anode rod is an expendable item, when you remove it examine it for erosion. If you can see the metal center of the anode rod it is time to replace it. You can get replacement anode rods from a big box store, just make sure you get the right length rod, cost is around $10. When you winterize your TT screw the rod back in at least partially to prevent critters from getting into the WH tank.
