When the time comes to replace the anode rod in your Suburban Hot Water System, please note the type of thread on the anode rod. Genuine Suburban anode rods art NPT (National Pipe Thread). Be aware that whilst it may seem that BSP (British Standard Thread) anode rods (commonly seen in the Australian market place to suit household/domestic type units) will fit, they will cause damage to the fitting on the tank as they require some force to install tightly. NPT and BSP threads are not compatible with each other – the tread ptch is at different angles. Using a BSP anode rod inside a Suburban Hot Water System will cause the seal to be inneffective by smoothing out the pitch in the female NPT. The result could be costly. An engineer may have to be called to re-tap the pitch or rust may develop caused by leakage – in this instance a new hot water system would need to be purchased.
We recommend always using Suburban anode rods in Suburban hot water systems.

“Bondwood is a “brand” name that is unique to Boral Plywood. Plywood is the product name for the whole industry that takes logs and peels them to thin veneers then glues the veneer back together to make a strong panel.
“Bondwood” is actually Marine Plywood made from Hoop Pine. It is the highest quality that can be made regarding internal veneer construction and face veneers from Hoop Pine. Marine Plywood is actually referring to the glue being used. It is waterproof, so suitable for marine applications. The veneer or wood fibre is actually untreated against water decay etc.
We stopped marketing the Bondwood name about five years ago and now call it simply “Marine Plywood” which it is by definition. In Marine Plywood or Bondwood three face/back grades are available AA, SS and the lowest quality is OO. OO grade is suitable for overlay purposes.
Marine Plywood is the most twist resistant plywood made in Australia. Austral and ourselves (Boral Plywood) being the only manufactures of Australian Standard AS 2271 and AS 2272 Marine Plywood.
Over the years we have sold large amounts of “Bondwood” to Vic, SA and Tas, so I guess the name is living-on more in those areas compared to other States.
