The Tank Rotten Eggs smell and black 'stuff' Reply To: Rotten Eggs smell and black 'stuff'


I haven’t pulled the anode in the smaller one, but I did take a peek inside with an endoscope when I treated it with peroxide and best I could tell, it seemed to be perfect. The Anode on the bigger one I was able to get most of the way out – There was probably only 3 or 4 inches in the tank when the top hit the HVAC ducting. There was some pitting and deposits on it, but I would guess it was still probably 90-95% (unlike the anode in my now-replaced water heater that was totally gone). Since the anode is still there and not even close to used up, would the condition of the tank still be suspect?
