Question about Heating & Cooling
Have 50 gallon Whirlpool gas heater. Rusty water only from hot water . called Whirlpool -they say I need to replace anode probably due to water softener. Heater is 5 years old. Is this worth doing? From comments i've read seems to be very difficult.
With the right tools and elbow grease its not that big of a deal.
Most folks try tackling it with chanel locks and a pair of pliers. without the right tools, it can be a challenge.
You may have an hours work, and less than 30 bucks in the job.
A new heater will run you 350 bucks easy.
