Question about Premier Water Heaters
Changed anode rod still getting rust one year old tank
The rust can be from rusted pipes, and not necessarily tank:
New tank has new anode rod, and is NOT likely to be cause of problem.
Anode only protects the tank... not your steel pipes.
There are mathematical formulas for figuring what size and type anode is needed for steel structures like bridges and water heater and boat hulls... if anode is too small or deteriorated, or coated in calcium, or not electrically bonded to the steel surface, or if tank is not full of water or boat hull is out of water, then anode cannot protect the steel.

It looks like a plug screwed into the top of the water heater (it IS plugging the hole so turn off water and release pressure b4 removing)

It is the 1" or 11/8" hex nut on the top of the water heater some where buy the supply line. As for the anode rod it could be either depending where it was sold. If you are going to change it out call your water provider and ask which would be better for your area and water.

I would have to go along with your brother on this one. The aluminum anode rod is by far the cheapest way to go. Other options include extensive filtration,ozone treatment and acid treatment.
The aluminum anode rod is much cheaper and I would recommend you change it yearly at least. Good luck and thank you.
