Products and Return Policy -- Rescuer kits can be used to retrofit an older tank or prefit a new one. They include an anode rod, sediment flush kit, Water Heater Workbook, instructions keyed to the book, a service sticker, and pipe seal tape. Their component parts can be used as needed. Aluminum/zinc anodes solve or reduce smelly water problems, and powered anodes do that in softened systems. The flush kit blasts sediment out of the tank. The book, by Larry and Suzanne Weingarten, is a cornucopia of information.
