      i cannot seem to find the anode rod on my “bradford white” hot water tank, i have well water and the sulfur,iron, smell wont go away. My question is i was told to remove the rod but as i said before, i cannot find the rod. Do i have to take the top off and disconnect everything or is there something i dont know about. help me please.

      it should be on top of tank it looks like a hex bolt.however i don’t think that is the problem especially if cold water is smelly also.

      The anode rod is located within the hot water discharge fitting on the tank. It sure would have nice for BW to locate a separate port for the rod!

      Turn off the cold water inlet, open a hot water faucet, remove the hot water outlet-union and anode coupling. What you will be left with is a 3/4″ NPT port directly into the top of the tank.

      Replace anode using plumbers sealant on all pipe fittings, and reinstall discharge line.
