water heater issues


The anode is usually on the top where the pipe fittings are, sometimes there is a cover over it. It looks like a 3/4" pipe plug.

Great stuff..the 'nobility' of metals! I love it. Thanks for helping me to learn something about a process I had only an anecdotal understanding of. I'm gonna lay it on thick when my corrosion sub comes out to install (4) 17# magnesium anodes and (4) 6# zinc electrodes on my latest job. You the man Teetor.

Pipe, just a day in the life for me, remember my marine business? Add together an aluminum hull, SS shafting and bronze thru-hulls. Combine with 220, 110VAC, 36 and 12VDC systems, add a common ground and an electrolyte, like salt water and you had better know your stuff. My ins. co. would crucify me for sinking a $14M yacht.
