POWERED ANODE ROD THAT STOPS ROTTEN EGG SMELL IN HOT WATER
The current supplied by the FixOdor anode will stops the bacteria that create the smell in the hot water tank. In addition of stopping the Sulfate Reducing Bacteria (called SRB), the FixOdor stops corrosion inside the hot water tank.
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.
WHAT CREATES ROTTEN EGG SMELL ?
Rotten egg smell in hot water is normally created by a bacteria named SRB (Sulfate Reducing Bacteria) that develop inside your water heater. This bacteria is not dangerous but will create a very nauseous smell in your house.
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.
HOW POWERED ANODE ROD STOPS THE SMELL
FixOdor powered anode rod will use the current supplied by the power supply to neutralize the SRB bacteria that is causing the smell and prevent it in the future.
Current used by the anode is very small and represent only $3 / year.
HOW POWERED ANODE ROD STOPS CORROSION INSIDE THE TANK
FixOdor relies on current to completely stops corrosion inside your water heater. Unlike sacrificial magnesium anode rod, a powered anode rod will not sacrifice itself to protect against corrosion. The electrical current supplied by the power supply will stop the loss of electron inside the tank happenning because of the corrosion process. To ensure long term protection, powered anode rod are made ouf of titanium covered with mixed metal oxide (MMO).
Lifetime of a powered anode rod depend on the current supplied by the power supply and the size of the rod itself. Our FixOdor system is designed to protect your tank against corrosion, sulfur smell and limescale during 5 years. After that period, you only need to replace the anode rod.
SIMPLE, SAFE & EASY INSTALLATION
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 voilà!
