Magnesium pencil in Aqua Marine Water Heater

Hi,
does anyone know if the Atlantic Marine Water Heater (T Series) has got a magnesium pencil somewhere? I can't find one and it is mentioned in the manual.

Thanks a lot for your help,
Luis

For a boat's hot water heater, I'd expect that you'd need a special small size that had ot be ordered from the maker. You might want to order the new one, and then see if there's a bolt on the top of the tank that looks like the end of the pencil. Often they just screw into the top on domestic hot water tanks, and just look like "another bolt" until you take them out.

Thanks hellosailor,

sorry, what I was trying to say is that it is NOT mentioned in the manual...
I have an idea how it should look like, but I doubt that this particular heater has got one.

Regards, Luis

Does Atlantic Marine, Richmond, still exist? Can't find their website.

Do all marine water heaters have magnesium pencils somewhere? (I know they should have one... )

Thanks for your help, mates!

Dunno, Luis. I'm not familiar with that brand, have never "taken a poll" to see what it usual with them.
