    the harbor freight one is not bad and for the price you can't beat it.

    a 3/4'' electric impact will also do the trick much easier.

    i hope you're not planning on doing anode change outs. good luck.

      $490. Well worth if you plan to remove more than one. I haven't found a better way.

      He has anode rods and drain ball valves with garden hose connections.

      My experience though is that water heater maintenance is a tough sell/payback/payoff for residential. but, for commercial it pays.

        I would suggest a impact wrench, 1/2" electric usually will work fine, much easier than trying to hold the tank from spinning,

        there are some automotive 1/2 drive torque multipliers, I Have seen for use on car lug nuts, my torque mu plier is a little larger,

              here is another unit that may work and not extreamly bad price, for what it is, one would have to get the correct socket.

                  I think that in 35 years I may have changed two. I sell water heaters

                    Impact wrench on your anoids? Damn, that's gotta hurt.
                    Hope you use anesthesia first. I think I would prefer a scalpel.

                          I was wondering how long before someone jumped all over the spelling. Usually Mrs. Seatdown makes the correction. For the record I believe the word we are looking for in anode and the medical one would be adnoids
