Products > Sediment Control
and Replacement Dip Tubes

sediment flush kit

What you'll find here: Sediment flush kits, straight and curved dip tubes, and ball-valve drain assemblies. Replacing the dip tube on an old heater may give more hot water. Curved dip tubes expel sediment. What does all that mean? Well, take a look at the picture above. It comprises all the pieces listed below. The whole kit is all this, but you can also buy separately a curved dip tube, a straight tube, or a ball-valve drain assembly. The dip tubes have an integral PEX-lined pipe nipple of 4 or 6 inches. If you're not sure what you need, think about buying a consultation. We'll repay the fee if you buy what we recommend within 10 days.

Shipping

Shipping is by UPS Ground within the contiguous United States and Priority Mail to Canada, Alaska and Hawaii. UPS does not deliver to post boxes. Allow about a week for shipping. We try for shipment within one business day of receipt, and when we've set up the order, we can give you estimated delivery date and a tracking number. The shopping cart generates an invoice and automated response, but you should hear from us fairly soon thereafter. If there is any hitch with your order, we'll tell you immediately. If you don't hear from us, check your e-mail junk folder. Occasionally spam blockers divert our mail.

Miscellaneous

Doing it yourself: The products offered here are designed to make water heaters last longer, or solve specific problems. Installation is potentially do-it-yourself, but if you have the least doubt about your abilities, we suggest that you obtain expert help.

Also, it's better to make sure you can loosen the factory anode or pipe nipples before you order. That's easier than ordering and then having to return it. But, too, a plumber can probably get it out even if you can't, so consider that as an option.

Anodes and flush kits are of a standard size used by the whole American water heater industry. They will fit all residential tanks with 3/4-inch plumbing.

Return Policy

Merchandise in original condition can usually be returned within 120 days for a full refund of the purchase price, not including shipping. Write to mail@waterheaterrescue.com for instructions and authorization. If the electrode on a powered anode has been immersed in water, the device cannot be returned.
