I have a RUUDGLAS Pacemaker water heater, MOD # PE52-2T C.

Customer Question

I have a RUUDGLAS Pacemaker water heater, MOD #: PE52-2T C. I have own it for a 11 years. It came with the home. It came with a generic "Use & Care Manual. The manual sayes to perform an annual inspection of the ANODE ROD to check for wire exposure. Where is the ANODE ROD located on my tank? The water heater pictures in my Care manual are not of my perticular water heater.

Welcome to Just Answer, I will do my best to help you solve your problem

Rickheatdoc :

Anode rods are typically in the top of the tank under a plastic plug/cap in the jacket.

Rickheatdoc :

Once you remove the cap you will see a ~1" hex plug

Rickheatdoc :

this is the top of the rod

Customer:

There are three plastic caps on the heater, which one?

Rickheatdoc :

could be any one, most of the time it is right in the middle of the top in an electric heater like yours

Customer:

Thanks
