Why not take you replacement anode to Bunnings and get the socket that fits it.

As mentioned by cherrywipe, 1 1/16 deep socket $16.50

Thank you again everyone. Just to let you know I needed a 38mm or 1 1/2 inch socket. plumbers no go. Took new anode to a friend who is a mechanic found 38mm socket, went home and bingo with in 10 minutes all done.

Ya probably going to need something a stronger than a tube spanner. .... big sockets are easy enough to obtain from any decent tool shop

As for element ...... most come out with 4 much smaller bolts ...... are you sure you are not looking at the sacrificial anode.

Bantam, they are a screw in element and a tube spanner undoes them with no problem at all. Probably cheaper to buy a socket though.

if you haven't already purchased a spanner you could try pawn broker Cash Convertors etc

they normally have a box/bin full of loose sockets all varying sizes at cheapish prices
