Which tools do I need to install the Corro-Protec anode?

Published and updated

Our response

To successfully remove your old anode and install your Corro-Protec, certain tools are required. A ratchet wrench fitted with a 1 1/16” socket will be necessary for the removal process. Meanwhile, a socket of 1 3/16” size or an adaptable wrench is recommended for the installation of the Corro-Protec. In addition, a square-headed screwdriver and universal pliers should also be at hand for the operation.

If you have an impact wrench, this could help you remove a stuck sacrificial anode rod.
