What Is an Anode Rod?

Monday, May 14th, 2018

sunny-plumbersThere are a lot of plumbing fixtures and appliances that you are very familiar with. Your toilet, bathtub, sinks, dishwasher, etc. Your water heater probably does not get the same amount of thought as these fixtures and appliances do, because you are not really interacting with it directly every day, as you do with these others. You should still keep your water heater and its overall condition at the front of your mind, though.

After all, all of the hot water coming from your faucets and into your appliances is heated by this system. One of the best ways to protect your water heater is already in place: the sacrificial anode rod. If you are not familiar with what this phrase refers to, then today’s post is definitely for you. We know what you’re thinking. Why should I care, as long as my water heater works? Well, that is precisely the point.

slab-leakThere are a lot of great plumbers out there, and the ones on our team are some of the very finest in the industry. If you ever hear a plumber tell you that you can somehow completely eliminate the risk of leaks in your system, then you know that you are not talking to a trustworthy individual—and certainly not a member of The Sunny Plumber SoCal’s team.

Leaks in your plumbing system may develop for a number of reasons. Sure, they could be the result of shoddy workmanship (again, certainly not if you have been working with our team from the start). However, it could also be the result of very old materials degrading, the infiltration of tree roots, or even the shifting of land. There are a lot of reasons leaks may develop, and there are a lot of areas in which they may pop up. The slab leak is one of the worst.
