Raritan water heater anode replacement

I got a new anode for the Raritan water heater. The PO used "Seatech" fittings and PEX tubing 3/8" ID which is 1/2" OD. This is the hotwater outlet. Is the Seatech fitting reusable?

SeaTech fittings are reusable. I can't tell from the photo but that one may have a safety ring in place. You'll need to remove the ring before you can release the tube.

I see I'm late to the party as usual.

Ok. So. Have the anode out and replaced, certainly not before it was time. I have also obtained a new heating element. Based on the condition of the anode, should I prophylactly change the heating element? It still works but perhaps not as hot as I'd like.

I'd leave the element alone. When ever I change something that's working, I usually break it or something else. If the water isn't hot enough, turn up the themostat.
