  1. Hahahahaha… come on the Teflon backwards!. The funny thing is that he is explaining how to install it the correct way…

  2. Is there a way to prevent the anode threading from corroding/getting stuck that wouldn't make the water undrinkable? I'd like to replace the anode on my next tank regularly but won't have someone or something to hold the tank while breaking the old one free.

  3. Replacing the factory installed Anode Rod as it depletes will stop internal tank corrosion HOWEVER, if you have well water, it will not solve your odor problem. Our company solves this problem with our product. We use a "sensor rod" that replaces the factory aluminum/magnesium rod inserted in this video. Your water odor is gone within 1 tank cycle and your water heater is protected for years beyond the factory warranty. Our product works, hands down!

  4. What's the order for turning the heater off/draining? Kill pilot flame, turn off gas, open hot water faucets, cut off cold water, drain tank?

  5. I really enjoyed laughing while learning how to replace the anode rod. Thank you. Stinky Shit.

  6. In Canada we have cold water heaters. That's how we get our hot water – we heat the cold water that's piped to the house.  If we had hot water piped to the house, we wouldn't need of any type of heater…. especially a 'hot' water heater.

  7. The segmented anode rod has thin links to hold the rod together. Won't the links corrode quicker than the anode rod itself.
    Thank you for your reply.
