Finally got my dad to change his anode rod!
After hounding my dad for two years he finally let me change the anode rod in his water heater.
Bradford white power vented 50gal model installed in early 2007. I removed the hot side connector and nothing was left! I looked down in the tank but there was nothing to be found though I didn't feel like completely draining to heater to see if anything had fallen.
I put the new rod in but something tells me that tank isn't going to last a whole lot longer. They have well water and he seemed to recall the PH being on the low side.
How common is it to find not only the rod gone but even the wire gone on these heaters?
