Water Heater Anodes

Anodes Rods are designed to protected the tank of a water heater by reduceing internal corrosion. Periodic replacement of the anode rod prolongs the tank life. the anode rod includes a hex head for easy installation.

Anode Rods attract corrosive elements in water, so they attack the anode rod rather than the interior of your water heater's tank. Simply remove the plastic drain plug and insert the anode rod. Atwood Anode Rod is made of magnesium; Suburban Anode Rod is made of aluminum. When replacement is necessary, unscrew the old one and insert the new one.
