  1. Jack Kelly

    I had smelly water for nearly 20 years until I installed the Corro-Protec. Six years since installation and still keeping the water fresh and odor free.

  2. Leeanan

    Excellent product, gives excellent results!

  3. Grandmaster

    Easy install, fixed my smelly hotwater, very minimal smell now

  4. BJ

    Not a review but a question. Is whatever this anode does to the water and water heater safe? Safe for drinking I mean.

    • Corro-Protec

      No, this is not a water treatment system and you should never consume water that came from the hot water tank.

  5. Michael Pelchat

    Product works as advertised for removing the sulfur smell from our hot water. It was recommended and installed by the contractor who put in the tank. Very pleased so far.as the smell was gone in a matter of hours. Time will tell if it protects the tank from corrosion, but getting rid of the sulfur smell was the main goal at the time.

  6. Rich

    First, I was concerned that the nut used to screw the anode rod into the tank is plastic, it made me nervous as I wanted to be sure it was tight so as not to leak but not too tight to break a plastic nut. I feel they could easily come up with a slightly better design. Beside that concern this product worked perfectly. If you have a sulfur smell from your hot water that is related to the chemical reaction of your water with the standard anode rod, well then this powered anode rod is exactly what you need. It has completely removed the bad rotten egg smell from our water. I could not be more satisfied.

  7. Geoffrey Ulmer

    I purchased the Corro-Protec powered anode because our hot water had become very smelly. Within a couple of hours of installing the new anode, the problem had been resolved.

  8. Roman

    Replaced our hot water tank in the country and immediately, horrid smell came from the water. After some research, found out that the aluminum anode rode causes this and a zinc one may fix it but what I read, that may not be a solution as well. So I read the reviews on the Corro-Protec option and bought it. Easy to install and it immediately fixed the isseu with the smell. Instructions were very clear as well. Suppose to make the tank last even longer than regular Anode so time will tell but so far, would recommend.

  9. David R

    Wish I had bought this years ago. Experiments with removing the original anode rod and adding zinc tablets to our water heater worked for a while, but the smell always lingered or came back in full force. Adding this powered anode rod was simple and easy, it fixed the issue instantly, and there has not been a single whiff of that foul smell over a month and a half later. I am VERY impressed with this product and highly recommend it to anyone experiencing odd smells from their hot water.

  10. Cliff Landwerlen

    This works exactly as it said it would. I emptied the tank to clean it and once we filled it again the smell was completely gone. Should have purchased sooner it is well worth the cost Anna shipping was very quick.

  11. Mike S

    This powered anode did exactly what it was advertised to do, it got rid of our smelly hit water.

  12. T. H.

    Très satisfait du produit, a résolu mon problème de mauvaise odeur pour l’eau chaude mais cela a pris quelques semaines avant que le problème soit réglé au complet.

  13. Jim Vanover

    Saved me over a thousand dollars!
    The smell in our water wad so bad we only used it to flush the toilets. Iwas ready to have the well drilled deeper and decided to try the Corro-Protect Poweret. It worked! No extra drilling needed here. Thank you Corro-Protect!

  14. Susan Schroeder

    We’ve only had our anode for a week or so but it was easy to install and has eliminated the sulphur smell emanating from our hot water taps. The change happened within hours of installation in our new hot water tank. Delivery took about 3 weeks but we are fairly remote.

  15. Daniel

    Cleaned the rotten egg smell in our new home. Been 2 months no with no problems. Easy to install.

  16. Roger B

    I purchased this rod to eliminate ‘smelly’ water. Once the powered rod was installed, the water smell was gone within a couple of days. Weeks later the smell hasn’t returned. The rod was as easy to install as a standard rod, Should have done this years ago.

  17. Gary

    Great product, easy to install solved my smelly water issues immediately.

  18. Jeremy Moyer

    Great product and performs as advertised. Awesome value.

  19. Matt L.

    Not able to install it magnesium rod is not coming out of the tank

  20. Ian F

    This anode worked perfectly to eliminate the sulfur smell from a well-supplied water system. Only the hot water was affected, so installing this anode in the HWT (and removing the old one) solved the problem after running the water for about 30 minutes (alternatively the HWT could haver been drained and refilled). We purchased the home recently and none of the previous owners (4 I think) were able to solve this issue.

  21. Brian

    I\’ve been around long enough to be skeptical of most of the \”miracle\” claims I read or hear about. I\’m happy to report that your product worked \”miracles\” on my new water heater! Now i have no odor in my water and no wife on my back – what a deal!!! Thanks for making a product that does what is says it will do.

  22. Bill Applegate

    I’ve had one for about a year now. I tried special anode rod. Expensive and did not work very well. I tried removing anode rod. Had to replace water heater in 2 years. Tried Corro-Protec on new heater. Smell gone. But it took me a lot longer than 15 minutes to install. Not cheap but worth every penny I paid for it. Give it an A+ at this point..

  23. Clarence Morin

    excellent product fixed odor problem within 24 hours very easy to install highly recommended

  24. Christina Wagner

    We had horrible rotten egg smell, installed this, amazing!!! Smell is gone.

  25. Brian

    After getting a smell in my already softened water I discovered that it was reacting to the existing anode rod, the smell went away immediately after removing the stock anode rod.

    This was the only solution that protected my tank and didn’t produce a smell, Installs very easily, instructions are excellent and seems to be a quality product so far.

  26. Andy

    This product really works odeur is no longer present

  27. Walt Brenda

    We recently ordered two of these arrived in two days so happy about that it is the best thing that we have purchased one for our home and one for a rental property I would recommend this to anyone thank you

  28. Margaret

    We live by the Chesapeake Bay on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. The water here is known for it’s high iron content. We had put in a new well and it got worse. We have been suffering from stains and horrible sulfur/rotten egg smells. We have 2 houses on our farm. The original house has a gas hot water heater and the new house has an electric hot water heater. We each have a salt system to help with the staining.Today, we put the Corro-Protec into the new house’s electric hot water heater as the water in that house is so much worse than the original house. We just gave my grandson a bath and we are very excited to say that the smell is gone!!! This is amazing and I will be telling anyone in this area about the success of the Corro-Protec!!! We don’t have enough room to get the old anode rod out of the gas hot water heater but when it comes time to replace it; I will be changing over to electric and will purchase the Corro-Protec to install in it. Kudos to whom ever figured this out!!!!

  29. Mac Sue Sabourin

    I recommend this product to anyone with water smell problems it’s a great product.

  30. Gilps

    works great. relatively easy install. would be better if the nut size was the same as the standard instead of 1/16 difference.

  31. Ray Winchcombe

    Installed this in a 4 yr. old Rheem water heated because of a serious rotten egg smell showed up a few months ago. This rod eliminated the smell within 24 hrs. The old rod was completely sacrificed so a new rod was needed and all the positive reviews of this rod solving the sulfur smell issue for others prompted me to try it. Great service, quick arrival and easy install (used impact wrench to remove old rod, took all of 20 seconds). Would highly recommend this to others. Now lets hope it continue working for a long time.

  32. Terry Hart

    I am so impressed with this product. It has done every thing you have said it would. I had recently bought a new water heater and with in days that nasty smell and taste showed up. Being in ill health it was makein g me ill to my stomach.It took it away with in hours. Il will be recomending this to my various associates and friends in the construction industry. Thanks for the great product. ,

  33. Carole G.

    Bonjour, je suis très satisfaite de ce produit.Les problemes d’odeur et de couleur sont corrigés après seulement quelques jours et le service de livraison aété très rapide. Merci

  34. Scott

    I ordered this product expecting the 10 day to 3 week delay but it arrived on the 3rd day after ordering it! I had an sewer odor from my water heater after changing the anode rod, changing from Aluminum to Magnesium made no difference but 12 hours after changing to the Corro-Protect system and flushing the hot water heater as per the instructions I had no odor to my water! 1 month later and there is still no odor, the Corro-Protec fixed my water smell.

  35. Trevor G.

    I purchased three of your Corro-protect units and so far I am quite pleased! The first one I installed in my house, I am on city water, and had to change my anode every 10-12 months. As my hot water heater uses a hot side nipple style anode, it was always more pricey than a conventional one. I’m hoping it ends up saving me money over time.

    The second one I installed in my Mom’s home. Small town water, and again as she lives 1-1/2hrs away from me, it’s a convenient solution to reduce maintenance at her place as she is in her mid 80’s and lives alone. Again it’s a hot water side anode so will hoping it saves me some money and one less thing on the “to-do list”.

    The third one went to my brothers house. Well water with the typical “smell”. As his kids grew up and moved away, there was less water usage and the water smell become worse. Happy to say within less than a day, the water smell was completely gone! This was a conventional style anode.

    All were easy to install, and no issues to date!
