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.

Can't locate the year of manufacture of my Rheem Fury Model 29-40S-2


Generally the year of manufacture for Rheem is 3rd and 4th digit of serial number. 06 is 2006, 92 is 1992 etc.
Older gas water heaters are better than new ones, and easier to keep repaired and maintained.

Regardless of age, the key factor is whether tank is rusted, or rusting.
Open drain valve and check if water is rusted.

Water has a sulfa oder,when not in use. what is the solution?


Generally tank odors are bacteria reacting with anode rod.
Make sure odor is isolated to water heater, and on hot water line only so you know water heater is best suspect.
Change anode rod.

Your plumber will know all about anode rods and will have tools or impact wrench for removing old anode rod.

Water discoloration. Rhreem serial rh0909ff00279 date 9/2003 model 8v520c 50 gal electric rheemglas fury. prolem occures when we use hot water. tried fixing...backwashed, drained water out completely...


Brown discoloration is evidence of a rusting or corroded steel pipe somewhere in you plumbing system. Trace the water lines back from the faucet and replace all the steel pipe.
White discoloration is minerals that separate out when the water is heated.
You can change the Anode Rod and it should help. It is not an instant fix, the rod will take a week or two to do its job.
If your water heater is still under warranty, call Rheem, they may replace the water heater free.
