This is my 8th year installing the anode rod and every time has been a struggle. Worst is when I've installed a used one with plenty of life left. The material initially deteriorates at the bolt head making the rod even more out of balance. This year was a little easier than prior years so maybe I'm getting the hang of it.
And why 1 1/16? They couldn't do an even inch so there would be a chance I already owned the correct socket?
