Anode Rod

Anode rod smell

An Adode rod is a magnesium or aluminum rod that is placed inside of a water heater in order to reduce the amount of corrosion along the outer walls of the tank. The Anode Rod is typically the first part of the water heater to start to break down.

When an Anode Rod starts to break down the water that comes from the hot water side can begin to develop an odor. The Anode Rod can be replaced which should restore the quality of the hot water.
