The Tank where's my anode? Reply To: where's my anode?

Hello: I’d look at the possibility of the anode being part of the hot outlet. Disconnecting the hot line and poking a stiff wire down the pipe will tell. If the wire goes in only a few inches, there is an anode underneath. If there is a heat trap involved, it’s better to unscrew the whole thing to see. Sadly, that can damage the nipple, requiring replacement. Bring along an extra helping of both luck and skill when unscrewing the anode 😎

Yours, Larry
