Dip Tube - How Long?

Unknown AO Smith 55 gallon tall electric. Dip Tube is disintegrated so unknown original length.

Tank is 58" tall. Lower element is ~45" from top.

Should I get the 45" tube or the 52"?

Thanks!

That's what I was thinking. It's 6" shorter than the tank so seems like should fit but cutting should be easy.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I've been away for awhile and forgot how great you guys are.
