What Happens When Anode Rod Stops Working?

Published and updated

Our response

When the anode rod in your water heater no longer works due to wear and tear, it is important to replace your sacrificial anode with a new one. Indeed, this type of magnesium or aluminium anode protects the walls against rust by dissolving its alloy. Another solution is to purchase a Corro-Protec impressed current anode to double the life of your water heater against corrosion and water damage and eliminate unpleasant odours.
