^^^ I agree with everybody. I've changed a bunch of rods in commercial heater/tanks and sometimes they do that. I always change them, as long as I have the water drained down. Craig

Changing rods sure beats changing large heaters and tanks every 4-5 years! Craig

lots of life left for those two rods


Yep, if thats from one season of use it looks like they would be good for another 8-10 years, but if folks feel better wasting money every year for a new rod more power to them. Those rods will perform just as well as a new one.

I would change them at about 50% use. there cheep insurance.

its a little deciving how they wear out, mine look simular to his after 1 season. after the next they are about 50% gone. it also depends where I go camping nd what the water is like there.
