  2. I would love to know what about this water heater makes it “self cleaning”? I just bought one, FYI, the 40 gallon one. Just curious…

  3. EE2H50RD045V whirlpool water heater.. need magnesium/zinc anode rod ARGH! Spent 400 on this heater now I have to buy a different anode rod for 50 because I have well water!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Julie, why is your anode rod incompatible with your private well? Did the manufacturer make this determination? Do you have excessively high mineral content? Are you using a water softener? Is that problem or another solution?
