First Geno and Randy thank you both for a quick and informative response. I’m a retired machinist and have a tendency to over build whatever I do. You ought to see my smoker.
That being said I will not sell this house I’ll live here till I die.
I know the Bradford White has the magnesium anode, but it will be used up in time. I don’t have clearance to pull out and replace the anode when that happens.
This may sound stupid but what exactly can I do to make this water heater be the last one I ever buy? My water hardness, according to the Dallas Water Dept. considered to be moderate.
Maybe a powered anode with the flush kit?
