Extend the life of your hot water system with an anode replacement
It’s a simple fact of nature. When metal sits in water it rusts and will eventually corrode away to nothing. If you own a hot water system and it is more than three to four years old. You may want to think about anode replacement.
What is an anode I hear you say….. An anode is a long thin rod inside your hot water system, it is the only thing that stops your hot water system from rusting inside.
The anode rod is the most important factor in determining the life span of your hot water system. An anode rod is a steel core wire surrounded with one of three different metals. These metals include aluminium, magnesium, and zinc. The rod is screwed into the top of your water heater and protects your water heater from rusting.
These anode rods need to be inspected and or replaced every three to four years. An anode replacement can extend the life of your hot water system.
If not replaced, your heater is subject to the ravages of rust, and this is the main cause of hot water system failure. If you do need a new anode, this simple service could save you the cost of a new hot water system.
