      I have a hot water tank that was installed just last year and the element needs changed frequently. Is this normal and how do I change it myself instead of calling the landlord everytime I run out of water?null

      Something is wrong if you have to change them all the time, I had mine for 6 yrs. and have not changed it. First thing is shut off electric, drain water, take wires loose and you need a 1-5/8″ socket and hope it comes loose. You better have el. checked going to water heater, might be wrong voltage.

      If yiou have high TDS’s or agressive water, you need a special element.

      Remove the anode rod in the top of the tank and describe to us the condition of the anode rod.
