Where is Anode Rod on Reliance Water heater?

The anode rod in your Reliance brand water heater is located on top of your tank. When you are facing the front of your water heater, the sacrificial magnesium or aluminum anode is located between the cold and hot water connections. In the case of a gas water heater, the anode is located near the ventilation system.
