You sort of went over my head with the math. But I will take your word for it. I took an Algebra coarse on the GI bill after leaving the Army. I got all B's through the class and learned that A=B....

I couldn't agree more.

I see that what I thought was a ground clamp is actually a tap for your ice cube maker most likely.

I'm not sure what I'm looking at. The top picture looks like you drew a red box around a ground clamp and #8 wire. That is either the inlet or outlet and the other in/out pipe is obvious and since...

All the anode rods I have seen on water heaters are nothing more than a six sided nut that a 1' wrench would probably fit; protruding from the top of the heater somewhere on top near the cold and hot...
