Can I use a powered anode if I have a water softener?

Published and updated

Our response

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 rotten egg smell in hot water. The Corro-Protec Powered anode rod will automatically adjust to provide optimum rust protection.
