Can’t Loosen Anode Rod From Water Heater.

To loosen the anode rod of your water heater, it is important to wear a pair of gloves to protect yourself from heat, a socket wrench and a power bar for better support in confined spaces. Seek professional help if necessary.

    I’m struggling to loosen the anode rod and scared if I force it, I could do damage? Please advise if there is a risk if I put more force to turn thread?

    Please advise.

      Have you tried an impact wrench?
