We're getting ready to do the water heater move. I've got hot and cold copper pipe roughed-in and ready to be connected in the attic and at the new location outside next to the bathroom, and I've got the plan in my head for the rooflet and door to enclose it.
A friend of mine has given us a never-used, new-old-stock 40 gallon Reliance 501 water heater. It's a "low boy" form factor, 24" diameter, 32" tall. He bought it in 1994 for his shop but never ended up putting hot water in. I'm attempting to figure out what kind of anode it came with so I can supplement it with one on the hot water side, and I figure I should probably replace the plastic drain valve with something metal, and I should see if I can find a dip tube that has a curve on the end to help with sediment build up a bit.
Any other suggestions, or does anyone know how to find out the kind of anode that it has inside?
