Anode Rod 1

Here is something to think about...

  • You want your water heater to last a long time
  • It will cost you less to replace the anode rod than your water heater
  • Water softeners can accelerate anode rod corrosion
  • The water heater makes loud or multiple popping noises when heating up
  • Your water heater is more than 5 years old
  • Acidic water can accelerate anode rod corrosion
  • Your faucet aerators seem to clog more frequently
  • You or your spouse notices a slimy gel substance when cleaning the faucet aerator
  • Your hot water starts smelling like "rotten egg" odor

So what is an anode rod and what does it do?

Most water heater tanks are steel with a thin glass lining to protect the metal from corrosion. Since the lining eventually cracks, tanks have a second line of defense against rust: a long metal “anode rod” that attracts corrosive elements in the water.

How important is this service to the life of my water heater?

Replacing your anode rod at regular intervals may increase the life of your water heater, saving you money, time and the inconvenience of having to replace your water heater. One of the most important considerations in having a normal life span for your water heater is whether the anode rod is performing it's job - to divert corrosive action away from the tank walls to the anode rod.
