Any preventative service for Buderus powered anode?
I have a Buderus ST-200 (50 gal) indirect HW tank with a powered anode. The status light is always green. The model is now discontinued. It's about 10 years old and-- shame on me-- I'm going to clean the tank for the first time this spring. The few times we had a rep out to clean the boiler he said it was already very clean and there is usually very little build-in the tank. But I know we're overdue now.
The main reason I'm asking... we heard from our water dept. stating that too much salt is in the water and it could affect our heating system. The boiler is closed loop so we're OK there. But not sure what effect it could have on the indirect tank.
Customer Service at Buderus refuses to put me through to a tech. They refer me to my rep or the manual. The manual makes reference on how to test the anode but nothing about the powered anode setup. Is there anything we should do for preventative maintenance especially given it's age and the added salt? If there is a sacrificial anode, what is the part#?
