An Anode Rod will protect your hot water tank from rust and corrosion. Magnesium is known to rust before steel, this will protect your hot water tank from corrosion. The magnesium anode rod will sacrifice itself to corrosion to add years onto your hot water tanks life.
Water heater tanks are made of steel which is very corrosive when exposed to water. The inside of water heaters are coated with porcelain to prevent the steel from coming in contact with water. No matter how good the manufacturer of your water tank is at working with porcelain, there are always going to be small cracks that can allow water to meet with the steel underneath. An anode rod will solve this problem. Made of magnesium the anode rod also known in the trade as the “sacrificial lamb” will corrode before the steel in the tank. Basic chemistry states that because of the relative position of magnesium to steel on the electromotive series of metals, that the magnesium anode rod will corrode before the steel tank. This being the case, the 11593 Anode Rod from U.S. Solid will protect your ten gallon Atwood hot water tank from rust and effectively prolong its life
