How long does a powered anode rod last?

July 19, 2023

Our response

Powered anode rods are recognized for their longevity, effectively protecting your water heater from corrosion for many years. Unlike sacrificial anodes which deteriorate over time, powered anodes can potentially outlast the lifespan of your water heater.

This lifespan often extends over a decade, with some high-quality brands like Corro-Protec offering powered anode rod designed to last more than 20 years. However, the precise lifespan can vary based on factors like water quality and usage patterns. Regardless, the long-lasting nature of powered anode rods contributes to their appeal, as they require less frequent checks and replacements compared to traditional sacrificial anodes.
