Where is Anode Rod on an Electric Water Heater?

Published and updated

The anode rod in your electric water heater is typically found at the top of the tank, concealed under a plastic cap and insulation. You will need to remove these components to access the rod. This is the case for almost all electric water heater models. However, it’s important to note that for Bradford White tanks, the anode rod is usually located in the hot water outlet port.

To determine the exact location in your specific model, please refer to your water heater’s user manual. For your convenience, here are links to anode rod locations for several popular brands:
