Thirty inches is plenty for pulling the anode out and checking its condition. You don’t have to see the whole thing. So leave the factory anode alone and replace with a flexible one when the time comes.

When the time comes, there will be so little left of the factory rod that you’ll easily be able to bend it and remove it.
