The Tank

Welcome to The Tank, a forum and community for those with water heaters. Feel free to post questions about problems you’re having or comment on just about anything. We intend this to be a place where problems are resolved and the exchange of ideas and information comes to a full boil.

Anybody can view posts and likely, by searching, find solutions to their problems. But if you want to ask a question, you’ll have to register. It won’t be used for any sort of solicitation. Once you’ve registered, to post, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Advertising is not allowed. If you violate the rule, we may delete your registration without warning. That includes dredging up old topics and inserting inline links. This site is supported by sales of anodes, dip tubes, books and DVDs. There is a fair amount of information about such things elsewhere on this site. Consultations are also offered, so don’t ask for product guidance here. We’re not giving away here what we’re selling there.

We know that other, highly qualified professionals visit this site. We invite you to weigh in on the various topics. We will attempt to answer all questions that come our way, but other opinions are always welcome!

Last year, when The Tank moved to WordPress, a number of people reported problems logging in or changing their password. We think we fixed all that, but if you have trouble, contact us at
