  1. Daniel Brown

    What a great product. Installed new hot water tank about 6 weeks ago and the water started smelling instantly. My previous water heater only lasted 5 years due to the fact I removed the anode rod completely and did not replace it. Once my water started smelling after new tank installed I started researching and came across Corro-Protec. I read the reviews and even though a little pricey, I purchased. I installed and the smell was gone within hours! Installation was very easy. Instructions were easy to follow. This was a great investment.

  2. Jack Willard

    Will this also work in my travel trailer, we have been fighting a rotten egg smell for some time now. I have replaced the anode and still get the smell.

    I purchased a cottage that had 92’ well. The hot water had a bad smell and after installing a water softener it even got worse!! After switching anodes, reading , talking to a few so called experts I still has terrible rotten egg smell in my hot water. I came to find your electric pa ode on the internet, so I thought what have I got to loose?? Aftertastes a very quick and simple install it was ready to plug in. Within 4 hours ALL THE SMELL WAS GONE!!!!! It’s now been over a year and we still have clean fresh smelling water!!!! AMAZING PRODUCT, thank you!!!!!

  5. Jason (verified owner)

    This works. I read several reviews and researched quite a bit about this before investing the money. After installing in our water heater, the smell was GONE within about 3 hours. The instructions were thorough and easy to follow. It was nice that the company included the extra fittings needed to install in our Bradford White water heater.

    That familiar hot water sulfur stench started after only 2 years in our newly constructed home, so of course we called a plumber. Yada yada yada $300
    later, after draining the tank and installing a new anode, he thanked us for the business. That next year the mutant smell returned. This time I did the research and discovered Corro-Protect. Their web page lays out the cause and remedy, and the customer reviews sold me. Following the enclosed directions, and a great review from customer Bob Sickler – 9/25/2019, I did the installation. Instantly the smell vanished ! The worst part was removing
    the old lime encrusted dissolving anode. Oh ya, also wait for an 80 degree day with matching humidity to do the install. It will make the results that much
    more satisfying.

  7. Dennis Trom

    My last Richmond water heaters lasted 5 years and 2 years! And I kept getting the black gunk in the hot water lines even though I bled the tank every 6 months. In desperation I cut off the mag rod, left about an inch and a half. After 10 days I took the advice of the water conditioning guy and had them install the Corroprotec. I couldn’t believe the amount of corrosion in only 10 days on the stub of the mag rod they removed. The mild odor is gone and only time will tell if the tank holds up any longer than the last two.

  8. Nicole Dickson

    This was a lifesaver! I can new take a shower in fresh smelling water. No more sulfer smell in laundry, shower, and dishwasher. Thank-you!

  9. erich haller

    It was a easy install on a new 55 gal gas tank, your installation instructions are good

  10. Steve Popp

    Easy installation – the water quality seems better than a standard rod. Will find out how effective when I get back from vacation. My last anode was ineffective and cause a rotten egg smell. I am anxious to see the water quality when I get home. Will update if I have any issues

  11. Doug MacGregor

    I have no details to add. It was installed by my plumber. Seems to be working though. No sulfur smell anymore.
    Seems like a good product.

  12. Carol Donaldson

    It was easy to install, got rid of all the gunk in our hot water tank, and we didn’t even drain it first! I have already recommended it to our neighbours. This is a great product!!

  13. Ken Wreggelsworth (verified owner)

    New anode rod took care of the rotten egg smell at my cottage, worked almost immediately, but definitely within 24 hours, easy to install and great instructions

  14. John Andronaco

    Purchased for a vacation home that had an issue with rotten egg smell from hot water heater, despite heater being brand new. Under warranty, the hot water heater was changed and shortly thereafter, the smell returned. Had the corro-protect installed and immediately the smell was gone. I have had it installed a few months now and it continues to work like magic. So thankful for this product.

  15. Kevin May

    Amazing Product! We have had sulfur smell in the water for years…. We put a new drilled well in last year and only had the smell on hot water after that…Put in a new hot water tank, Using multiple filters and uv light and still the smell! Installed this product and added some bleach to the tank when we installed it… filled tank and let is sit over night…drained the tank again to get the bleach out and then refilled… This is overkill but as I said, I have tried everything.. Very pleased to say that the smell is gone!! Wish I had found this years ago! If you have sulfur smell on the hot water side, buy this now and get rid of that old anode in the tank. Highly Recommend!

  16. John McIntire

    So far so good, easy installation on my new water heater. Used a cordless impact wrench to remove the factory anode rod. Had to go back a couple of times and gently tighten the new corro-protec rod because of small seepage, but didn’t want to risk over tightening. So just a little more each time. Typical plumbing skills and techniques and you’ll be fine.

  17. J.E.

    Shipping was very quick. This device was very easy to install and got rid of our sulfur issue literally overnight. Our 2 month old water heater came with a magnesium anode and it was being eaten away at. Fantastic product!!

  18. Bob Sickler (verified owner)

    If there were 10 stars available, I’d check that. I have owned and installed the Corro-Protec since September 2019 (about six months) and not once have I had foul smelling hot water in the shower or sinks. In addition, if this device can prolong the life of my electric water heater, WOW, what a bargain for the price paid! We’ll see because I’ve had to change electric water heater tanks like socks over the years. They don’t make tanks like they used to. Ten thumbs up guys!

  19. Gary P

    Worked as promised! I have a fairly new well and for a while the water was fine. However after about 6 months the smell came and got worse and worse. We were able to isolate it to the hot water side. Our well folks suggested it was a reaction to the anode. Their only solution that works was to remove the anode, acknowledging that would void the water heater warranty. It was only months old, so I googled and found articles about corro-protect. Seemed logical since I knew my magnesium anode was the problem. I ran all the water out of the tank right after install, and the next morning the smell was gone!

    Amazing product! Sulfur stink gone in less than 24 hours. DIY TIP: Shut off power at the breaker box and close the cold water supply to your water heater tank. Remove your faucet aerators and open your hot water sink faucets and run water to drop pressure in the tank. Stop draining water temporarily and remove the old anode while water level in the tank is still nearly full. Connect a garden hose to the tank valve and position the hose outlet outdoors, open hot water (only) faucets again and open the tank valve and drain all the remaining water from the tank. Close the valve. Using a funnel in the open anode hole, pour a container of hydrogen peroxide into the tank and let it sit for ten minutes. Install your Corro-Protec powered anode per instructions. Leaving your hot water faucets open, open the cold water supply to fill the tank until it blasts thru the hot water faucets in your sinks. Close all faucets, clean aerators, and re-install them. Now turn on the electric power to the tank and plug in your Corro-Protec anode. The hydrogen peroxide helps to neutralize tank bacteria upon refilling giving the powered anode a head start to eliminate the odor. Next day showers were totally stink free! There are some smart folks up there in Canada! So far I’m totally happy with my purchase. Yes, pricey it is, but think how many times you would have to replace standard and even zinc alloy anodes for the life of the tank. My previous Zinc/Aluminum alloy anode lasted less than a year and the odor came back in spades long before that!

      Thanks Bob for those comments!

  21. Pio Urso

    Great product so happy. Wish I knew about this product sooner sulfur smell is gone
    Easy to install and fast delivery.

  22. Jeff Myers

    Easy to install, working great so far. Definitely recommend using impact wrench to remove old anode if you have one.

  23. Rosanne Kaupas

    So thankful for this product..
    I was gaging from the smell of our water after replacing our old water heater.
    Thank you so much for a great product.

  24. Tony

    At last the rotten egg smell is gone and nearly instantly. Installation was easy and for the results the price is excellent.

  25. Jeremy Bolton

    Water doesn’t stink now!

  26. Robert Post

    Corro Protect removed the sulfer smell from our water when no other solution worked. Great product!!

  27. Dechert Sharpell

    No more Sulphur smell!!!

  28. Shelley Akvik

    Once I had the old anode out the corro-protec was easy to install and the rotten egg smell is gone. Very satisfied!

  29. Kevin Vaughan

    The installation was very easy on a 40 gallon Richmond gas water heater.

  30. Arthur Hammett

    easy to insert in water heater – within 2 hrs. that bad smell was gone – what a great product – why doesn’t all new heater come with this anode rod?

  31. Tom Brichta

    Very easy to do, smell seems to be gone, will have to wait to see if it protects the tank in the years to come. Thanks but I sure wish it was available locally, have you tried to get into any of the big box stores?

  32. Michael Bergeron

    Super produit! Merci

  33. Arianne Jamison

    Yes! Water is hot, smell is gone!
    The only thing I will mention as an aside is that the original anode is not as nearly as easy to remove as all the videos and instructions made it seem. But this is not about that, this is about me (and my family of course) being able to take showers without the smell!

  34. Jerry Shader

    Fantastic product !! Completely took the bad taste out of our water within minutes of installing it. We couldn’t believe it, but it worked immediately. We highly recommend you purchase one if your water tastes bad.

  35. Laura Posey Evans

    Our house was having the “rotten egg” smell in our hot water for some time after putting in a new hot water heater 9 months prior. After several attempts to shock our water and asking around for suggestions, we took to the internet and found this product on a YouTube demonstration. Best $100.00 we have ever spent. Anode rod was easy to install and smell was 90% gone immediately. Was completely gone by my morning shower so I was happy!!!

  36. Tom Brichta

    I installed one in a new tank and it took away the smell, now I just have to wait to see if the tank will last for 10 to 20 years! Thanks…

  37. Yvan Lamoureux

    Yes, the dreaded sulphur smell is gone . I did try a aluminum anode but was still getting the smell. I ran my old water heater without a anode for over two years until i got a blast of crap blocking my tub faucet valves and elected to buy a new tank and along with a corro-protec anode. So far so good and enjoying the green lighted comfort feeling furnace room now.

  38. Mitchell Hayes

    This is a great product at a good price. Replaced a standard annode rod that was in the house when I bought it and was only 3 years old. It was completely gone due to the water quality. Installed this product and instantly the sulfer smell was gone and I never need to worry about when to replace the rod. I had to tear up the top cover a bit to get it in but well worth the investment. Will purchase again for any water heater I own.

  39. Ronald Lee Coffin

    Fair price, fast delivery, works well.

  40. David D.

    It got rid of the terrible rotten egg smell. One of my best purchases in a long time.

  41. Gayle Quinn

    Seems like the horrible odor in our hot water went away immediately.

  42. Ruth

    When I installed a softener in my well supplied house, I immediately got a strong hydrogen sulfide smell in the hot water. I first tried an aluminum anode since it was less expensive and reportedly would work in some cases. The aluminum rod reduced the smell a bit, but not enough. This powered anode system eliminated the smell within a day. It has been worth the high price.

  43. Kaye Figueroa

    We have well water and softener system and had that rotton egg smell before I was able to get the anode rod replaced. We have had the electric anode rod for a couple of months now and happy to say that the smell is still gone. The rod itself is fairly easy to install with the right tools. I’m a 4’11” woman and I was able to install everything myself except removing the old anode rod.

  44. Brian E DesCamp

    The smell is GONE! This was my main issue, and this product solved that. I will just have to trust that it’s actually protecting my tank, as there is no way for me to know, other than the green light says it is.
