The Techs that installed the HW Tank came this morning...They installed a new tank with the Anode Rod completely Removed...They said the Warranty is still valid, as this issue is not new to them and this is a common recourse..Sure with the rod removed the concern about a shortened life span but we should get 8 / 10 yrs if all goes well..We do have a UV Light & HD Softener prior to the HW Tank...Cheers Thanks.

Well, a forum committee would have to issue a Declaration of Greatness. Should I get started on the paperwork?

Finally caught my Neighbor, he had replaced his HW Tank about 14 months ago, prior to installation he removed the Anode Rod..His previous tank lasted 13 years...
