    Anode difference between Rheem models?

    Looking at the Rheem gas models at H.D. Does the platinum model with the 12 year warranty have an additional anode vs the performance plus with the 6 year warranty? My understanding is B.W. just gives a longer warranty, no additional anode. My State heater is 18 years old. I replaced the anode...

    Gas Water Heater: Good News / Bad News

    Good news is my heater has a 10 year warranty. Bad news is that it expired 25 years ago, and is leaking. Are there any tips on selecting a new high quality heater?

    Anode rod rusted in place... is there such a thing as an inline anode for copper?

    Ok, I have these old tanks from 1993. The anode rods are a ball of rust, but the tanks do not leak. They're Rheem Rheemglas Standard 668H-120-T. What's my best course: leave the tanks be, or try to get some anode material into some other port on the tank? Is an "external anode" a possibility...

    Tankless Anode?

    Reliance 606 Element Leaking

    Based on the various guides on this website, I'm probably looking at replacing my water heater. But this is a last ditch effort to do some DIY before calling a repair tech or dropping hundreds on a new tank. One month ago the lower element starting leaking rusty looking water. So I replaced the...

    Smelly hot water even after new anode rod

    I was having issues with a rotten egg smell in my hot water and replaced the anode rod. Although the rod had a dark scummy coating on it, it had not been reduced in length or thickness. With the new rod n place, I had almost two weeks of smell free water, but now the rotten egg smell has...
