Removing anode rod........
I've searched and read the previous posts regarding anode rods, but I haven't come across how to get a 'stuck' anode rod to break loose from the water heater.
It needs to be changed............odor in hot water........all other tests for bacteria are negative. They have well water and the system is on a water softener (lots of iron). HW heater is only 5 yrs old.
DS has tried a socket wrench, in addition to using a pipe on the handle for leverage. Nothing is moving except the water heater.
Any suggestions before we call in the plumber???
