    Don’t have much hot water. I know the tank is crudded up with sediment. I attempted to remove some of it a few months ago and just made a mess. I am going to replace the anode, dip tube, heating elements and install a flush kit. I want to buy my parts from this site. But, there is the question on the combo anode. The nipple on the Bradford-White tank combo anode is about 2 inches long. I will probably destroy it when I remove the old anode to check it. This site sells a combo anode with a three inch nipple. Can I use the three inch nipple combo anode in place of the Bradford White combo 2 inch anode or do I need the OEM anode? The piping going to the tank is flex pipe so I can bend it to fit if I have to.

    TIA

    Hard soldered plumbing that one would need to rework would be the only issue regarding using my anode instead of an OEM one, and you don’t have that problem.

    Thanks Randy. I thought that might be the case but I wanted to be sure before I ordered.
