Why is a powered anode rod better than a sacrificial/traditional anode?
A powered anode is a non-sacrificial anode that uses a current rectifier, plugged into an electrical outlet, which sends current in the hot water tank through a titanium anode.
Unlike sacrificial anodes, powered anodes are maintenance-free and designed to last for years. Plus, they are well known to solve rotten egg odor problems in hot water tanks instead of causing it.
