I need to replace the dip tube on my water heater. It’s a Penfield model. Are the dip tubes universal? Having trouble finding one that says it’s for Penfieild.

pretty sure they are universal. have replaced a few a few years back and had no problems. bad lower element will give same problems as bad dip tube. 1 sign of bad dip tube is aerators in sink will stop up will what looks like little eggshell pieces. good luck

Broken dip tubes are as rare as hens teeth ,I would ck the bottom element,it does 99% of the heating and its thermostat is what sets tank temp
