There is nothing sweeter than the smell of fresh cut grass on a baseball infield, the click of a wooden bat and the taste of a hot dog at a warm sunny daytime double-header.

Yes, warranties can be voided if the anode has not been replaced. I just changed an anode rod in a house I rehabbed. But for a different reason. Just an FYI, I noticed the rotten egg smell on the hot water side only; house has a well. It turns out that the anode rod was made of magnesium, which will react with any sulfide in the water and release hydrogen sulfide gas (rotten egg smell). The fix-change the anode rod to an aluminum rod. Anyway, the water heater documents did mention to have the anode rod inspected yearly or the warranty could be voided.
