I don’t remember right now. I don’t think it was specific to Rheem. It was many statements made by many of the sights like this that the newer Tanks are using Aluminum now.

Does Rheem still use Magnesium rods primarily? I know they make other rods for water issues like Sulphur water issues and such. I don’t have any of those issues with my city water. I just really try to restrict the amount of Aluminum I intake due to the research relating it and the possible links to Alzheimers. It’s pretty common in some parts of my family.
