Keiiieh04, to clean out the (Crud/Junk) inside the W/Heater, go to any place that sells (Washers/Dryers) and ask them for a (OLD) washer supply hose,they replace them with NEW when installing! Cut the hose in 1/2 and Now you have a (Water Heater Cleaning Hose) (FREE) just screw on a garden hose and place in the (A/Rod-Plug hole) and watch the (Crud/White Crap) come out of your Heater! Youroo!!

Here is a chart to give you some idea of when to change it and some ideas on how to flush out the gunk.

REMEMBER to ALWAYS close the bypass valves when removing the anode and flushing to avoid that gunk from getting swept into your cold water pipe.
