What is the Recommended Torque for Tightening a Corro-Protec Powered Anode Rod?

Published and updated

Our response

While the installation of a Corro-Protec Powered Anode Rod does not necessarily require a torque measurement, if you choose to use one, aim for about 22 foot-pounds. This range is a general guideline to ensure a secure fit without applying excessive force, which could potentially damage the water heater’s tank or threads.
