Either in a separate anode port on top of water heater, or connected to cold water nipple with combo anode.

No No No. Turn off power,drain tank,unscrew two pipes,power cord should be long enough to alow you to put the tank on its side if needed,replace anodes located under plastic covers in the top of tank.I have just replaced my rheem heater after twenty five years because of rot from the outside cover causing it to fall over.Worked fine.

SOURCE: where is anode rod located on 100 Gallon rheem

Anode rods for tank-type water heaters are located on top of tank.
This is true since anodes are about 44" long.
Top of anode is standard 1-1/16" hex nut.
Anodes can be located in 2 different places: either directly screwed into top of tank -or- attached to hot water nipple.
Most times the exploded parts diagram in manual simply shows 'anode rod' without specifing exact location. If your tank has long warranty, then it can have two anode rods, and 1 will be on top and the other probably attached to hot water nipple, or there could be two anodes screwed into top of tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html

If anode is screwed into top of tank, then it will be under a plastic cap -or- it will be concealed under the top cover of tank.
Look for plastic cap, and if none shows, then remove screws holding down metal cover and look there for 1-1/16" hex nut.
Lastly, remove hot water nipple and check for anode located there.
If you have 2 anode rods, then replace with same metal for each.

Where is anode located mdel no. 82yp30-1


Question posted under Rheem water heater.
Model number does not describe water heater.
Model number posted in question does not appear at Rheem, and does not appear in a web search for water heaters.
Here are options:

1) Add a comment and describe water heater in detail so expert can access more information

2) Contact Rheem.
http://www.rheem.com/Contact.aspx

3) If this is tank-type water heater, the anode is located on top of heater.
Look for 1-1/6" hex nut located under a plastic plug.
Some anode rods are connected to the hot-water nipple.
Sometimes the top cover has to be removed to find anode hex nut.
I have used impact wrench on anode, and could not remove in some cases.

I need anode rod for my rheemglas fury model # 81V52DT. do you know what the part # is or maybe the dementions. There seems to be several diffrent ones out there. Thanks


Anode rods are generic and available from local plumbing supply store or internet.
Just cut it off so it drops into the tank without touching the bottom or sediment on the bottom.
If there is not enough room above the tank to install new rod, then buy anode rod with sausage links.

Where is the anode rod located on the rheem 81VP20s


Anodes are located on top of water heater.
There are no hard fast rules for location, either by model number or brand.
Most times the manual is likewise vague.
1) There is hex head visible on top of tank.
2) Hex head is located under a plastic cover
3) Hex head is located under metal top, so remove screws holding top, and lift top off to view hex head
4) Anode is connected to hot water nipple.
5) With 9-12-15-and lifetime tanks, you can have 2 anode rods, and each has to be made of same material to work properly. Usually magnesium-aluminum instead of aluminum.
But if you inspect and change anodes frequently to prolong life of tank, then one is as good as the next.

Tech resistor anode rod has resistor added to prolong life of anode.
You can cut rod off to fit size of tank. You want anode 5-6" from tank bottom so sediment build-up doesn't reach anode.
Anodes are standard 1-1/16" hex head.

Water stinks


If water has odor, then check anode rod or hire plumber to replace anode rod.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html

Bacteria reacts with metal on anode rod, causing odor.
Good news is that anode rod is still functioning, so water heater is not rusted.
Once anode rod is depleted, you get no more odor, but tank is rusting and will need to be replaced.
Changing anode rod periodically will let tank last much longer.

I have whirpool hot water heater mmodleezf 40RDO45 V six months ago I had to buy and new anode and now the water is stinky again like rotten eggs, am I going to have to buy a new one every six months? ...


The smell is from bacteria.
1) The tank needs a new anode rod, but it also needs a periodic dose of hydrogen peroxide.
Recommend you reconfigure incoming water pipes where you can easily add 2 bottles of hydrogen peroxide and then flush water heater each 6 months. The peroxide kills the bacteria. Peroxide is not harmful to you since it is also used orally. You don't drink a bottle of peroxide, but it will not cause harm in trace amounts left in water heater.
2) There is something else to consider. If yours is a 12-year tank or lifetime tank, then you probably have 2 anode rods. Replacing one anode rod will not solve problem.
3) Another solution is a power anode rod. If your tank has two anode rods, then replace one with powered anode, and then remove the second anode rod.
According to the seller, he's had only one person where the water heater smell came back.


Here are links to information and to the powered anode rod:
http://www.waterheatertimer.org/Replace-anode-rod.html
http://www.waterheaterrescue.com/pages/WHRpages/English/OrderPages/XCart/Power-Anode.html

Manufacturers are starting to add powered anode rods to their top models to assure longer tank life and better customer satisfaction.

Does the 501 ahve an anode rod. If so, how do I replace it


Every water heater has an anode rod.

Reliant manuals

http://www.reliancewaterheaters.com/lit/om.html
Reliant is made by American

I don't find a 501 manual under gas water heaters at reliant.

The Reliant manuals that are available do not show the anode rod in the drawing.
But they do show an access port on top of tank.
The anode rod is usually under the access port which is a round plastic disc.
On some water heaters, the anode rod is under the steel top and you have to remove the screws holding the top on.
Some water heaters, the anode is connected to hot water outlet.
