A Warning

If you buy one of these, don't play with it. It is possible you could pull the links apart. If so, you can't return it.

The products offered here are designed to make water heaters last longer, or solve specific problems. Installation is potentially do-it-yourself, but if you have the least doubt about your abilities, we suggest that you obtain expert help.

Remember also that if you have difficulties with installation, odds are that a professional or handyman will know a way to do it.

Shipping is by UPS within the contiguous United States. UPS does not deliver to post boxes. Allow up to about a week for delivery. Canada, Hawaii and Alaska are only served by Priority Mail and can use a post box.


The shopping cart generates an invoice and response, but we will give you delivery date and tracking information within a few days of your order by e-mail. We try to ship within one business day. If there is any hitch, we'll let you know immediately. If you hear nothing, consult your e-mail junk file. It's not uncommon for spam blockers to reroute our e-mails.


Are you ordering the right anode? This anode requires its own port in the water heater and is usually a replacement. Make sure you have a hex-head rod in your tank and not a combo (outlet) anode.
