Sacrificial water heater magnesium anode rod protects water heater
The role of the sacrificial anode rod
The anode rod is the most important factor in determining the
working life of your water heater. An anode rod is a steel core
wire surrounded with one of three different metals.
These metals include aluminum, magnesium, and zinc.
The rod is screwed into the top of your water heater and protects
your water heater from rusting.
When the tank is filled with water the anode rod sacrifices itself
to protect the exposed steel of the water heater, through a method
called electrolysis. Electrolysis happens when there are two pieces
of metal connected inside of water, the process makes the anode rod
corrode in place of the exposed steel in your water heater. During
this process the more noble (less reactive) metal will corrode over
the less (more reactive) noble metal. Aluminum, magnesium, and zinc
are all much less noble than steel, meaning they will corrode
before the steel, which is why they are used for anode rods.
