Is it a Suburban water heater? If not, you don't need one!

After 3 summers, mine still looks like 5pickers. So it'll be going for as 4th. Degradation rate depends on what kind of water you encounter in your travels, how often you use it, etc.

Replacing it early seems like a waste to me.

Winterized and stored. As you can see I'm very sad but DW is smiling.




I can't tell whether she's reacting to the face I'm pulling or enjoying the thought of all that extra space in the driveway.

Mine is propane only, i will need to google what happens if no anode rod

I am wondering what is the benefit of them and what is the symptoms when there is not one. Mine was pitted pretty good last year at 1 year old

Also how often do you replace your home anode rod?

As needed by the inspection every 6 months! You can't go by what other Members do, all Water systems ,heaters,gallons used,are NOT the same,so results differ! Youroo!!

We had them put it in the deal. TV, ladder and rack ended up being a surprise. The trailer we had ordered came in but had an electrical issue and needed to go back to the factory.

Once a year regardless. We live where the water will eat up an anode in a year, easy.
One of the best ways to keep cost down and that water heater happy.(replacing a HWH can be expensive!!!!)
I only use an OEM rod. Some of the others brands aren't too good so I like to keep it simple.

I have never replaced the home anode. Didn't know that I should be checking it until it got too welded in to get out. I tried but didn't want to use a lot of force because I thought I might ruin the tank. Been lucky though, heater has over 30 years on it and still going strong!

My thought, the one pictured in the earlier posting looks almost new. Take a brush to it and it should be good for another year or so...

I feel your pain. Someone at church asked me what was new. I said, I am waiting for spring.
