Hello: The “snail eggs” (new description!) are indeed form an aluminum anode. You will likely have mure success flushing the tank if you install a curved dip tube and ball valve for the drain. Those parts are sold elsewhere on this site. They work together to stir sediment up and get it out. It’s not really important to remove every last bit unless it’s rumbling a lot. Replacing aluminum anodes with magnesium will get rid if the source of the snail eggs. 😎

Yours, Larry
