A powered anode is a non-sacrificial anodes that use a current rectifier, plugged into an electrical outlet, which sends current in the hot water tank through a titanium anode. Unlike sacrificial anodes, powered anodes are maintenance free and designed to last for years. Plus, they are well known to solve rotten egg odor problems in…

In most cases, water heater anode rods are universal. The only exceptions are : Buderus : They use another type of threading to install the magnesium anode. Bradford White : Some model have the anode is built into the hot water outlet. All other water heater brands use a regular magnesium anode with 3/4 ”…

Yes, it is even highly recommended to install an imposed current anode if you have a water softener. The water softener generally makes the water more aggressive to the tanks, which reduces the life of your hot water tank and creates a more conducive environment for the development of Sulfur Reducing Bacteria that creates the…

Our Corro-Protec anodes are made from titanium and coated with MMO, which improves their performance. The stability of MMO (mixed metal oxide) coated titanium anodes have been used for almost 30 years. MMO coated titanium anodes are used in various environments such as seawater brackish water fresh water carbon backfill and concrete.

Limescale may form if the anode is too close to the walls of the hot water tank and the current flows too quickly between the anode rod and the tank. Corro-Protec powered anode, unlike other anodes, has a design that prevents this type of reaction. Indeed, the white plastic present in the top of the…
