Surburban Anode Rod

 

Suburban Anode Rod For All Suburban Hot Water Systems. 
Genuine suburban anode rod for all suburban hot water systems.

All Surburban RV Hot Water Systems have an anode rod which absorbs all the corrosive action of hot water.
It is located on the bottom of the HWS under the main burner, you simply unscrew this to drain the tank of water.
If the rod is mostly eaten away, simply replace it with a new one.

 

Dear Valued Customers

It has come to our attention that an increasing number of Suburban Hot Water Systems are being fitted with anode rods that are not genuine Suburban products.

Did you know that there are many anode rods on the market? Cheaper imitations may not always be the best fit for a Suburban HWS. Not only are some imitations the incorrect length which could crush the cold water inlet collet, you also need to be wary of the thread type (at the head of the rod). 

The Suburban range of HWS’s are made in the USA and they use the NPT style thread for the anode. Most other parts of the world use a BSP style thread. If a BSP threaded anode rod is fitted into a Suburban HWS it will do irreversible damage to the pitch on the internal thread of the tank and cause future leaks.

The best way to ensure you don’t damage your Suburban HWS is to only use Genuine Suburban Anode Rods. 

Kind Regards,

The Team at Coast to Coast
