You rely on your water heater to provide plenty of hot water for cooking, cleaning, showering, dish and hand washing, and more. The anode rod is an important part of your water heater. At JNR Plumbing, we offer anode rod and water heater replacement in case your water heater develops a problem.
What an Anode Rod Is
An anode rod is a simple steel core wire with magnesium, aluminum, or zinc wrapped around the steel. It's designed to protect the metal lining of the water heater's storage tank from rust and corrosion. The rod may need to be replaced annually, and our plumber in Wilton, CT, can do this for you.
Signs of a Failing Anode Rod
If you notice bubbling or crackling sounds from your water heater, you may need a new anode rod. If the water heater doesn't produce enough hot water, you may also need a water heater repair in Wilton, CT. We recommend replacing the rod annually or biannually, depending on the water supplies quality.
What Happens If the Anode Rod Fails
A failed anode rod could cause the water heater's storage tank to crack and burst. This is an emergency. If it happens, you'll need a new water heater installation.
How Anode Rod Replacement Works
The anode rod is in the tank. To replace it, we'll drain the water heater. The repair is a quick one. After we fix it, we'll refill the tank with water. You can avoid anode rod problems with a tankless water heater.
