When to Change Anode Rod in Water Heater?

Published and updated

Our response

It is important to inspect the sacrificial anode every 1 to 3 years and replace it after more than 50% of its wear and tear to prevent corrosion of your tank. Its lifespan depends on the quality of your water. On average, the magnesium or aluminum anode must be changed every 3-5 years. For a powered titanium anode rod, it must be changed every 20 years.

Depending on the corrosiveness of your water, a regular anode rod may only last a few years. Our titanium anode rods work with electricity to stops corrosion, reduces limescale buildup and solve hot water smell. Corro-Protec reduces your chances of water heater leaking and extends the life of the tank.
