RV Suburban, Atwood & Mor-Flo
RV water heater anode rod
How it works
Powered rv water heater anode is a new generation of anode rod that is much more effective than existing sacrificial magnesium rv hot water heater anode. The Corro-Protec Powered RV anode is a long-term protection solution that is disrupting the RV water heater industry.
Our system uses a titanium anode and a current rectifier. When the rectifier is connected to the nearest outlet or electric wire connected to the battery, the rod located in the tank supplies a small amount of current into the water heater in your RV. This current completely stops the loss of energy from all metals inside the water heater, effectively stopping and preventing corrosion.
The same current is used to neutralize bacterias causing smelly water and reduces limescale accumulation as you can read in the following advantages section.
One last thing, powered anode doesn’t need any maintenance nor be changed over time. You don’t have to check your rv and replace the anode rod to prevent corrosion anymore to extend the life of your water tank.
Powered anode advantages & problems solve
Stop Tank Corrosion
Our Corro-Protec anode combined with electrical currents will provide added corrosion protection and increase the life of your Atwood, Mor-Flo or Suburban RV water heaters. Our system provides a layer of permanent corrosion protection on the internal welds and weak points of the tank. This technology is recognized by corrosion specialists and has been laboratory tested.
24-Hour Sulfur Smell Elimination
No matter what causes the rotten egg smell in your water, the Corro-Protec Powered RV Anode Rod can solve this problem in just a few hours. Once the system is operational, the energy projected by the system will prevent these unpleasant smells for years to come!
Reduce Limescale Accumulation
Limescale deposits cause significant costs for the rehabilitation of water pipes and heating installations and are also responsible for significant energy losses. The energy sent by the Corro-Protec RV anode is used to destabilize the calcium molecule found within the water, which has the effect of preventing the chemical reaction that normally creates calcite.
The Corro-Protec automatically adapts to the type of water present in your tank in order to offer you optimal protection. No matter if your water comes from the city or a well, our products will be able to protect your tank!
One-Time Quick and Easy Installation
This anode will be the last you ever buy. We’ve included step-by-step instructions to make it easier to replace your old water heater hex-head anode with our Corro-Protec with easy-to-follow directions for beginners. If you need help during installation, you can call us or email us.
The traditional magnesium anode sacrifices itself to protect the hot water tank until there is no more magnesium left. If you are using a sacrificial anode, it is important that you change your anode to always have magnesium to “sacrifice” which can be between 3 and 18 months depending on the water hardness.
Since the Corro-Protec anode relies on current to protect the tank instead of sacrificing itself, our technology breakthrough enables our anode to last decades.
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.
Yes, it is possible to install Corro-Protec by yourself. With all tools needed, it will take you about 15 minutes to install it.
A complete step-by-step guide is included inside the box for an easy installation. Each guide are also available on this page: https://www.corroprotec.com/installation-guide/
Since the amount of current used by the anode will vary from region to region due to the hardness of the water, it is impossible to give an exact answer.
However, on average, the anode will use 10 kWh per year. If we take the average price of electricity in the United States, the cost to run the anode 24 hours a day all year round is $ 1.36 or about a third of a penny per day.
Corrosion is a natural process that happens when two metals or alloys come into contact with each other.
Electrochemical reactions take place at the surface of the metals, and this can cause them to deteriorate and even break down over time. In some cases, corrosion can lead to dangerous situations if not addressed in a timely manner.
There are several ways to prevent corrosion from happening. In your water heater, Corro-Protec’s powered anode rod stops the corrosion process permanently.
We’ve developed different models that can be installed in all water heater brands starting from 10 gallons to 120 gallons, including specific models for Bradford White and Bedarus water heaters. Corro-Protec fits on electric, gas, solar, hybrid, indirect and geothermal water heaters.
You will need a ratchet wrench with a 1 1/16” socket to remove your old anode and a socket of 1 3/16” (or adaptable wrench) to install your Corro-Protec. You will also need a square-headed screwdriver and universal pliers.
Our technical support team created great step-by-step installation guides. They are also ready to answer all your questions and help you solve any problems you are experiencing.
