Never done a drip leg before. I've only changed an HVAC gas valve last season.

Is there a difference in construction between a 6 or 10 yr? Or, are you paying for the warranty that way?

I'll look at the drip leg.

Not really. Higher end models probably are. Idk. Usually just an additional or longer anode rod adds to the warantee. Just my opinion.

Depends on the manufacturer. Some send a premium anode rod. Some it's just extra paperwork you have to register. Best to check with where you are buying it from or maybe the manufactuers website.
