    Here is a good read on changing out anodes.
    It pretty much tells you everything you need to know.

    Default everything you need to know

    That sounds like a Johnny Carson routine where he tells Ed McMahon, "This will teach/show/tell you EVERYTHING you need to know", and when Ed queries, "Everything", Johnny reiterates, "EVERYTHING".

    There's a neat site called "waterheaterrescue" (insert dot com as usual).

    They make the claim that regular flushing and anode replacement can keep a WH alive for 20 years or more. They sell segmented rods - one of the few places I've found them on the web.

    They're a great site. I have their book and it's really thorough.

    They also sell curved dip tubes to help minimize the buildup of sediment.
