    Installing anode rode into the electric element hole. Thread FIP or?

    I'm working with a 1982 tank, still in operation, and wanting to change the anode rod. Can I use the electric element ports instead? However, the original anode is not coming out at this point, it's too late by a decade or so. It's a Rheem Solaride 120 tank, with two unused element ports...

    Can I install a 1 inch water softener on 1.5 pipe?

    We have a well and our waterline going into the house is 1.5 inches. Our interior water lines aren’t 1.5 inch so that’s why I’m thinking I can use an adapter to 1 inch. We don’t want to drastically lose water pressure though. Please let me know your thoughts and if it’s advisable.
