Welcome to FixOdor, Home of the Powered Anode Rod

The key to a fresh-smelling, efficient, and long-lasting water heater lies in an often-overlooked component—the anode rod. At FixOdor, we believe in providing innovative solutions for your water heater needs, and that's where our Powered Anode Rod comes in.

The Power of the FixOdor Powered Anode Rod

Every hot water tank is susceptible to corrosion over time. It's a natural process that eventually reduces the lifespan of your water heater. But what if you could significantly slow down this process? Enter the FixOdor Powered Anode Rod, an innovative product designed to combat corrosion, prolong the life of your water heater, and most importantly, eliminate those unpleasant rotten egg odors often associated with water heaters.

Unlike traditional sacrificial anode rods that eventually get consumed, our powered anode rod provides continual protection against corrosion. It does this by creating a driven electrical field within the water tank, which prevents rust from forming in the first place. This not only helps extend the life of your water heater but also enhances its overall performance.

Say Goodbye to Rotten Egg Smell

An added benefit of the FixOdor Powered Anode Rod is its ability to eliminate the notorious "rotten egg" smell that sometimes comes from water heaters. This smell results from a reaction between the sacrificial anode rod and certain types of bacteria in the water. Our powered anode rod, however, changes the game. Since it doesn't react with the water in the same way as a sacrificial rod, it effectively prevents the formation of that unpleasant odor.

Installation & Maintenance

Installing a FixOdor Powered Anode Rod is a simple process that can be handled by most handy homeowners or professional plumbers. And once it's installed, it's virtually maintenance-free, giving you peace of mind and freeing up your time for more important things.

The Bane of Corrosion

Corrosion is the arch-nemesis of water heaters. It's a process where metal gradually deteriorates due to a chemical reaction with the environment—in this case, water. Traditional water heaters use sacrificial anode rods made of magnesium, aluminum, or zinc to combat this issue. These rods attract corrosive elements in the water, sparing the tank and prolonging its life. However, as the rod sacrifices itself, it eventually gets depleted and can no longer protect the water heater from corrosion. This is where the FixOdor Powered Anode Rod steps in. Our rod doesn't get consumed over time. Instead, it produces a low-level electrical current that interferes with the electrochemical process causing corrosion. By preventing corrosion at its root, we help extend the lifespan of your water heater, ensuring you get the most out of your investment.

Powered anode rod are also called ''Electric Anode'' or ''Impressed Current Anode''. They use electrical current to replace the loss of electron inside the hot water tank happenning because of the corrosion process.


Sulfate Reducing Bacteria that create smelly hot water

The notorious "rotten egg" smell commonly associated with water heaters is caused by the presence of certain types of bacteria in your water. These bacteria react with the sulfur, magnesium, and aluminum sacrificial anodes that come with most water heaters to produce hydrogen sulfide gas, which gives off that unpleasant smell.

A popular belief is that removing the magnesium anode rod will solve the problem. However, removing the rod will not kill the bacteria and you will remove the only protection against corrosion that your water heater have.


A powered anode rod, like the one offered by FixOdor, provides an innovative solution to this issue. Unlike sacrificial anodes, powered anode rods are made of titanium and do not react with the water, bacteria, or sulfates in the same way. Consequently, they don't produce the hydrogen sulfide gas responsible for the "rotten egg" odor.

Furthermore, powered anode rods do not degrade or get consumed over time like sacrificial anodes. They produce a low-level electrical current that drives an electrochemical reaction to prevent corrosion, providing constant protection for your water heater. By preventing this degradation, they eliminate one of the main sources of food for the odor-causing bacteria.

In short, by replacing your traditional anode with a FixOdor Powered Anode Rod, you are minimizing the chance of unpleasant smells while also prolonging the life of your water heater. It's a win-win for your home and your senses.


Corrosion inside a water heater tank is essentially an electrochemical process. When the metal tank is exposed to water—particularly electrolyte-rich water—small electrical currents are produced as ions move from higher energy areas (anodes) to lower energy areas (cathodes). This movement of ions, over time, leads to corrosion or rusting of the metal tank.

Traditional water heaters combat this process using a sacrificial anode rod made of a more reactive metal than the steel of the tank. This rod acts as a more desirable anode, attracting the corrosive elements in the water and essentially sacrificing itself to protect the tank.

Traditional water heaters combat this process using a sacrificial anode rod made of a more reactive metal than the steel of the tank. This rod acts as a more desirable anode, attracting the corrosive elements in the water and essentially sacrificing itself to protect the tank.

A powered anode rod, on the other hand, takes a more proactive approach. Rather than sacrificing itself to the corrosive process, the powered anode rod produces its own low-level electrical current. This current effectively disrupts the electrochemical process that causes corrosion, thereby stopping the corrosion before it can even start.



FixOdor anode was designed to be easy to install in your water heater. All you have to do is follow our step-by-step installation guide to replace your magneisum anode rod with our FixOdor powered anode rod.

Here is some steps on how to install it :

- Disconnect from the power source and remove pressure inside the tank

- Using the ratchet wrench fitted with a 1 1/16’’ socket, unscrew the existing anode counterclockwise and Slowly remove the original magnesium anode..

- Cover the lower part of the screwable anode with teflon tape.

- Using the ratchet wrench fitted with the 1 1/16’’ socket, screw the anode clockwise.

- Install the black grounding connection on one of the tank cover screws and the red connector on top of the anode.

- Connect the power supply in a 110V outlet and the red light will turn on meaning the protection is active.

How FixOdor compare to other powered anode rod on the market?

FixOdor was designed to be a cheaper solution by providing a smaller anode rod. Since MMO titanium anodes are very expensive, FixOdor is limiting the rod length and size to last over 5 years. This is how FixOdor is able to provide you with the best-price powered anode rods available.

Compared to traditional sacrificial anodes already in your hot water heaters, powered anode rods are very small because they use current to protection against corrosion instead of sacrificing themselves like a sacrificial anode do.

Our powered anode rod can protect your water heater tank from corrosion and rust, extend the service life of your water tank, remove the rotten egg/sulfur smell in 24 hours, so that you can have clean, tasteless hot water. A blue LED light on the power supply allows you to check if the system is running properly, making your life easier and more convenient

The market leader, Corro-Protec anode, offer a bigger powered anode rod that will last longer with a 20-year warranty but are almost twice the price.

CerAnode offer a special design powered anode rods that reaches the bottom of the tank thanks to a special weight at the bottom of the rod. They also use audible alarm in the control module to alert if the system stops working. This anode rod is discontinued since 2021.
